When I see you smile, I immediately know that you are in awareness - Always keep this flowering smile, the halfish smile of a Buddha... - If you feel tired or angry, you can lie down and your awareness can simply be breathing - The Soto Zen sect teaches its practitioners to observe, without judgment, without reflection... - Are you afraid of the solitude - the emptiness and loneliness - that we feel, if we are what we feel? - I said then that both (art and letters) must reveal and heal - because to reveal is to show the true situation of men and society - and to heal is to show ways to be healed... (Thich Nhat Hanh)
Real friendship requires commitment and perseverance, demands the will to stay and fight for the other, just when the last thing you want is to stay and fight for the other - She may leave the relationship, but it is more essential that if she does so she is also leaving herself alone - Friendship requires compassion - We are not perfect - We make mistakes - We have to learn to stay and hold out, that is not innate to us... - The situation is serious - Please, send chocolate! - Being born hurts! - Life hurts! - Dying hurts! - Most people never touch the cause of their pain - They become more addictive and exchange the pain of being alive - against the pain of addiction... - Suffering comes when we react to the pain by pushing it into the unconscious - We are drawn together in pain, become smaller, leave the dwelling place in our hearts, no longer take risks, lock us, steal us away from our lives (see inner emigration etc. - d.48)... - Men go with sex like women with food... - Eaters are givers - We know how to nourish others - We are experts for feeding, listening and helping - To make sex satisfying we must be able to take physical pleasure, we must stand up to our desire, we must be vulnerable enough to ask, need, wish... - Silence your hunger for touch as you quench your hunger for food: Only through things and with people who nourish you... - I think compulsive behavior (addiction) includes besides alcoholism, drugs, smoking and overeating (see eg, overweight, diabetes, etc. - d.48), also partner exchange, consumption, movement, and religious fanaticism... - Suffering and the attempt to avoid suffering make people addicted - The horror of the uncertainty and the fear of revealing oneself and being oneself - makes one addicted... - Vulnerability, not wisdom, intelligence, or strength - connects people... (G. Roth)
