Why are you frightened of being alone?

Jiddu Krishnamurti“If you do not follow somebody you feel very lonely. Be lonely then. Why are you frightened of being alone?Because you are faced with yourself as you are and you find that you are empty, dull, stupid, ugly, guilty and anxious – a petty, shoddy, secondhand entity.

Face the fact; look at it, do not run away from it.

The moment you run away fear begins.”

Jiddu Krishnamurti, Freedom from the Known

Questions are the answer

Written By Satyendra Chelvendra

Ask questions and listen to the quiet voice within.

Questions allow us to gain clarity…….

….Too often we only ask question that we think we already know the answer to. It is immediately obvious that the person asking the question is already convinced that they have the perfect solution and are hoping that we will recognise that solution in the veiled question so we agree with them!

Small Steps

 

My grandmother once gave me a tip:
In difficult times, you move forward in small steps.
Do what you have to do, but little by little.
Don’t think about the future, or what may happen tomorrow.
Wash the dishes.
Remove the dust.
Write a letter.
Make a soup.
You see?
You are advancing step by step.
Take a step and stop.
Rest a little.
Praise yourself.
Take another step.
Then another.
You won’t notice, but your steps will grow more and more.
And the time will come when you can think about the future without crying.

Thought for the Week – 27th April 2020

Contemplation

“Scientists who study human motivation have lately learned that after basic survival needs have been met, the combination of autonomy (the desire to direct your own life), mastery (the desire to learn, explore, and be creative), and purpose (the desire to matter, to contribute to the world) are our most powerful intrinsic drivers—the three things that motivate us most. All three are deeply woven through the fabric of flow.”
