saying – 2 (plus saying -1).

No consciousness can fly any higher without elevating the ‘heavy’ lower self (ego), and this is done by minimizing the distance between the ‘ceilings’ (high consciousness) and the floor (the lower self). But If the distance will be too big, then the dense and heavy center of gravity of the ‘floor’ (instead of being pulled by the higher self) will pull to itself the ‘ceiling’ and so, cause it to crash.
In order for the lower self (ego) not to pull the higher self-down, it needs ne be light, weightless, and for that it needs to go through a process of ‘losing weight’. And as a person who wishes to lose weight must restrict his intake of food and eat low calorie foods – so the lower self must be restricted and limited by fixed boundaries.

The best investment in one’s life is in questions.
And not because it will bring you many fishes, but , but rather by having a fishing rod.
***
Whatever you do, never allow in yourself an entering of self-guilt and self-doubt. This two are like acid poured on naked skin, it will burn and destroy the more delicate and high chambers in oneself.
To give credit and backup yourself at times of attacks and shaming, (which shakes the very ground under your feet) – requires great inner strength and self-acceptance. To believe in who you are, and not to be swayed by external influences to turn against yourself, for there is no greater sin and crime against oneself then doing that.
***
There is no greater confrontation than between the lower and higher selves, the lower wins often, for he has got the power, where the higher self only has fines, purity and neutral consciousness, which are not even an opponent for the lower self.
But the higher self can be connected to higher forces that can hold him from above and will not let him fall. Without them (and of course without the lower powerful center of gravity) – he is as a puppet without strings attached.
***
People go crazy more often than we think, they can fall into a state of what could be called: poisoned state of being, or personal involvement or negative emotions. Here everything is upside down and ruling; it could be caused by being very offended by someone, or being in a rage about someone – here all the perspectives are lost and distorted, a loved one can become an enemy, a respected person will be disrespected, and someone we trust could become totally untrustworthy.
His evaluation about priorities and value are changed, for the worse. Here we will lose the ability to make a difference between good and bad.
He could be locked in this poisoned dunging for hours and even days.
And when he is out of this state – nothing is left, as though it was completely wiped out.
***
When you want to go up a level, life gets difficult.
It is like high wave in the sea; you can swim against the difficulty (positive vector), you can be swept by it (negative vector).
Or you can surf above it (neutral vector) – with it and on top of it, using its power to carry you to the shore.
The shore being the next level.
***
Women cheat about how beautiful they look, it is called: makeup.
And there is no protest against this misleading.
Everyone cooperates with this, pretending that it does not exist.
Why? Well, because it is still an accepted norm that women should sell themselves in order to be purchased by men.
***
Being a worldly known pianist or violinist, are no more than a very successful extension of technical abilities.
The only mastership is developing the dormant higher facilities, and thus, coming to be.
***
The known is but a narrow stripe in the unending spaces of the very influential unknown, on our life. There are two ways to cope with this limitation: one (the way of the human race) is to be based, and research, further the known. Another option (not used) is to shift the center of gravity to the unknown.
***
Abandonment of a partner in the middle of a relationship, is the cruelest act we can do to him/her.
***
Everything exists in levels. You could not change anything (in yourself), all you could do is go up a level.
***
The real consciousness warrior is like an old, sick, limping dog that carries himself on, not because but rather despite.
***
People from the level below will always be antagonistic to people from the level above. The only way those on the level above can deal with this antagonisem (or avoidance) is to be neutral. In fact, the strongest conformation for the one on the level above – is the antagonism of those on the level below.
***
You are where your mind is. And if your mind is nowhere, well then, this is where you are…
***
New age groups try to bring holiness to where you are, whereas the true way is to develop to the level where the holiness is.
***
People on a high level will be ignored by low level people. The real reason being that people on a high level has got a kind of ‘firewall’ protection which burns off anything from a lower level. It is like the sun which can burn the skin, and then, people from the level below has got no option but to restrict the territory of those who threaten (from their point of view) to burn them off, of course this restriction is done by them unconsciously, but those on a high level would register this passive aggressive attitude towards them – both consciously and unconsciously.
***
We are fashioned by our roles, instead of fashioning our role by who we are.

sayings – 1

I love people who are different/special. Who are not like everyone else, I don’t like those who are all the same (‘little boxes’) so average, so forecastable, and so flat.
Whereas the different/special people usually has got some spark in them, whatever spark it is; they are alive (something is moving in them).
With one reservation; too many of the different/special ones are not being able not to be crashed by the pressure of the erased faced silent majority. And they turn against themselves. Instead of rejoicings for not being part of the rest of the bourgeois.
***
About most – we can do nothing
About the rest — we could do something
But about being – we need to cease doing at all.
Just BE!
***
You could not change who you are and your behavior and characteristics – all you can do is upgrade them.
***
People who are living passionately and totally, in their profession – miss something. And what they miss is the actualization of who they are ought to be.
For if your profession is your top, you are fixed at that top. And nothing else could grow above it (like self-actualization).
***
The best antidote for personal involvement is having the comparison between our tiny personal involvement and the unending vastness of the universe and of the unending time before and after us.
In short: having proportions. This should bring our personal involvement back to it real size in our life.
***
One of the main differences between religions and spirituality – is that established religions (especially Christianity and Islam) – killed many people in the name of their religions, while spirituality killed no one.
***
Creativity is the highest form of living one’s life.
Opposite to consumption which is the lowest way of living one’s life.
We are here to create, everything in us is designed that way.
Just that we do it physically and that’s it. (Creating a baby).
Why it is so high? For it is delivering from the unknown and the unseen – richness, freshness, charge and a new look at life, that sees much of what is hidden from a consuming human being.
Unless we create out of us a new and higher self – we wasted our life on consumption.
For in the end, we either consume or create.
And if creation is the higher way to live, than the creation of a new you, is the highest of the high.
***
It is so sad to see old people. And not because they are less able, physically and mentally. (Or because they are going to die soon).
It is because they lost youth but should have gained wisdom.
Without it they are naked, empty, deteriorated, they lost (by over usage) the initial gifts of the joy of living, hope and motivation, and so, are left with nothing.
To see an old wise man is a rare happening, we are so used to see them saying clichés, dogmas, accepted sayings. Nothing fresh, new, of their own (that they learned from their life), that they managed to salvage out of the continuing shedding of their initial gifts from nature.
With every loss, every deterioration, with every losing of their youthful attractiveness – they should rebel against it by digging out of their disappearing sinking life – the Fertilizers (questions) for growing their flowers of wisdom.
To be able to translate their downfall into deep and beautiful rising flowers of wisdom.
Our life brings about illnesses and disasters. But the only way to come out winning over a disaster is by taking out of it a lesson. To become rich by what everyone throws to the sides, such as:  what does this experience mean? What its value, quality and intelligence about it?
His deteriorated life leaves behind huge question, which usually are left unaddressed.
An old wise man is not poor, or flat and forecastable. He is rich, overflowing with the vision he now has about the meaning and value of being alive.
We consume our life, and when there is nothing more to consume (for we have consumed it all), we remain starving (for attention, warmth, care). Instead of consumption we should have created the only creativity in this life which counts, and this is to create understanding and depth from what has passed throughout life..
An old man without wisdom is sorry sight; a human in their most deteriorated state.

A man is born, great joy, great promise, and great expectations.
But they would not come to be.
We are born with only our lower potential.  Not even half human, but a possibility of becoming one, which would be great achievement.
But, but, it doesn’t happen, we remain a promise, a possibility.
We live with it as though we are as we were supposed to be.
But we need to clean and build ourselves, create what we were supposed to be; a complete human being.
We have got work to do before we live; self-work, inner work, and then we could be, a shining dancing star.  Only then.
***
It is very natural to be born with empathy and love.
But something is happening to people on the way. Not only that they lose it, but along the way they replace empathy by apathy, and love by alienation.
Our love is limping, our empathy is breathing heavily, having shortage of oxygen.
But It is not possible to live like this; the soul cries out of loneliness and our emotions are freezing to death.
But why? Why and how come we lost this two?
There is simply no need for them in a competitive society, and more than that; in trying to be more successful than another – we feel that empathy and love makes us weak and venerable, through the eyes of the silent majority.
Love and empathy doesn’t help you us succeed at work, it doesn’t help us earning a university degree.
No one would appreciate your love or empathy. They are too busy trying to possess a greater territory than the other.
We dread from being a looser – so we run faster and faster, and love and empathy, are burdens on our shoulders, causing us to be left behind.
The paradox is that all of us need seriously both of them, most of us are crying out of anguish for at least one of them, but people would not admit how much they need it inside.
When was the last time that we witnessed someone turning to a close soul and asking for empathy or love?
Not asking that the close soul would be ‘nice’ (this is nothing), but to get real love or empathy, right now, because I am freezing.
The response of this close soul to this demand – would be of anger or objection, we would say that love doesn’t come on demand.
This causes us to hide our great need for love and empathy. We will try to project independence from the need to get empathy and love. Not wanting to be treated as a weakling.
And if this two magnificent qualities – are unused in us – or used less and less, then if one day we would need or want to express it, we would find – that there is no love and empathy -left.

A external quote:
Saints and sages, thinkers and philosophers, priests and scientific inquirers have tried for centuries to understand the enigmatic nature of the human soul. They find man a paradoxical being; one capable of descent into the darkest abysses… and yet equally capable of ascent to the sublime heights of nobility. They discover two creatures within his breast—one related to the demons and the other related to the angels.”
