We often say"Forgive and Forget." That's the correct sequence IMHO. If you want to forget someone or some unpleasant event, you must first forgive. Forgiveness is the precursor to Forgetting. If you don't forgive, you'll never forget, and that someone or that unpleasant event will stay with you, carved inside your heart and deep in your mind. Like a magma chamber of a volcano, you will then embody the hot burning lava of hate and volcanic ashes of bad memories. So to move on with life, you ought to learn to forgive, first and foremost, even the worst people round you. The stream of life would then flow smoothly and seamlessly - onwards and upwards.
We should always think about and focus on the things that we can control, and not the things that are beyond our control. In my view, Life is like a game of cards, and the hand we are dealt is Determinism; while the way we will play it is Free Will. Let's aim to make it a good one!
What then is capital punishment but the most premeditated of murders, to which no criminal's deed, however calculated it may be, can be compared For there to be an equivalence, the death penalty would have to punish a criminal, who had warned his victim of the date at which he would inflict a horrible death on him, and who from that moment onward had confined him at his mercy for months. Such a monster is not encountered in private life.
Whatever I have tried to do in life, I have tried with all my heart to do it well whatever I have devoted myself to, I have devoted myself completely in great aims and in small I have always thoroughly been in earnest.
When life gives you lemons, you don’t make lemonade. You use the seeds to plant a whole orchard and build a new lemonade brand… an entire franchise. Or you could just stay on the bus and drink lemonade someone else has made, from a can.
When making a decision of minor importance, I have always found it advantageous to consider all the pros and cons. In vital matters, however, such as the choice of a mate or a profession, the decision should come from the unconscious, from somewhere within ourselves. In the important decisions of personal life, we should be governed, I think, by the deep inner needs of our nature.
When you will be sailing happily in the blue ocean, thinking that life is all fun. Precisely at that moment still, you will be attracted by Siren's lethal skill. Never forget that Siren is the creature of the Fey, who will ruthlessly steal your heart away. Don't ever dare to look into her beautiful eyes, you will be left alone with your sad sighs and pitiful cries. In the journey of life, Siren's call comes with a price to pay, for the poor sailor who loses his life to that beautiful creature of the Fey.
With Age comes the Experience and Expertise. Most importantly, it empowers one with a clear vision to see through the hour glass of life, as more sand has already escaped through it with time. Like an early morning dream, life becomes brighter, clearer, and much less mysterious the longer one lives. It's also the wonderful phase of crisp creativity and innovative inventions, in my view, because even the crooked paths start to appear straighter the longer one travels on those. Just like wine, even people mature with age, and offer their best to the world, more so than ever before. Cheers to Age, and exceptional Experience that comes with it!
You laugh, and the world laughs with you. You cry, and you cry alone. You sing, and the mountains would echo you. You sigh, and it's lost in air. You rejoice, and the world will seek you. You grieve, and the world will walk away. You can be in sync with the world, its people and nature around you. You are the origin, and you are the center of your happiness and well being. So be thankful and enjoy life, each and every day as it comes to you. Cheer up, my friend!
