Alan Watts Says: “The startling truth is that our best efforts for civil rights, international peace, population control, conservation of natural resources, and assistance to the starving of the earth—urgent as they are—will destroy rather than help if made in the present spirit. For, as things stand, we have nothing to give. If our own riches and our own way of life are not enjoyed here, they will not be enjoyed anywhere else. Certainly they will supply the immediate jolt of energy and hope that methedrine, and similar drugs, give in extreme fatigue. But peace can be made only by those who are peaceful, and love can be shown only by those who love. No work of love will flourish out of guilt, fear, or hollowness of heart, just as no valid plans for the future can be made by those who have no capacity for living now.”
Love and happiness cannot be forced. It’s something you have to earn. It takes patience and understanding of yourself and the other person.
When pushed to do things, we tend to fight more against it. Understanding of a person is sometimes hidden by our own shadow. Sometime the idea is overshadowed.
Some people make it out to be perfect, but it’s not. You have to make it perfect. But you need to sort yourself out before doing so. Clean up your room and things wil fall in place.
In the end you won’t be able to change other people, but you can change yourself. And just like that people can’t change you.
So don’t push and let it flow.
Nagapie nagapie slaap jy
Ek kan enige iets vir jou se
Sonder om ongemaklik te voel
Jy het my veras
Ek like dit so cool
Kan jy die blokkie wees wat my puzzle kort
Kom ons vind uit
Lewe is te kort
