I deserve better! I deserve (insert any wish)! Today, we have become so complacent in our thinking that we do not take the trouble to make a just self-examination, which would cause us to deemphasize “deserve” and instead emphasize “earn”. So, instead of the declarative statement, “I deserve…”, it becomes a question, “how can I … Continue reading “I deserve….!”
No matter how many inspirational books or posts we read, we do not have the knowledge itself. Only information can be learned and transferred, not knowledge. The latter must be experienced. Information becomes knowledge only when it is mastered through action. Only when we apply something, see it in our life, and we are able … Continue reading The road to knowledge

In the first place, we must be clear the eyes do not see, nor do the ears hear! How? The eyes … Continue reading “Only what I can see exists!”
Nothing physical can be the source of temptation. For temptation is the "pull" that operates at the level of inner desires and concepts. Ex 1: a man sees a woman and thinks, "her physique is tempting me". But that is not so. It is only his inner desire that, like a magnet, releases the ability … Continue reading Reflections about temptation
We have become accustomed to using words loosely, without reflecting on what they actually mean. One of these words is the concept of "sacrifice". No human being, no matter how great the act, can ever truly sacrifice! What do I mean by this? Someone sharply criticizes you, provoking an inner struggle; You resist lashing out, … Continue reading It is impossible for a human being to sacrifice
Question: Could use some insight... So today I let my anger get the best of me. I was on a call with a call center - rep was rude and confrontational- and I mirrored her behavior.
