Special E-Vichara (December 10, 2018) — — The Little Prince

  • A test of losing meaning is feeling less human and more numerical — a test of losing meaning is feeling less passionate and more mechanical
  • All is changing in all ways — adaptability is how we sync with reality
  • Living for a mortgage is justification for living for the future — isolation encourages competition and competition encourages isolation
  • Disassociating sorrow from mistakes encourages trying — forgiving requires thinking and thinking requires time
  • By letting go of external dependencies we evolve from belief to faith — only the faithful are independent thinkers
  • Delusion is expressed as possessiveness — insecurity is expressed as conceit
  • Forgetfulness is expressed as separation — loneliness is mental not physical
  • Force works upon not within — taking the environment for granted is sadistic
  • The essential is known by the vision of the intellect and is unknown by the sight of the eye — only the heart can feel what is real
  • All we have, from relationships to identifications, have to go — by right thinking the non-essential guides us to the-essential
  • When we know what we need we will find what we need — God is not only outside
  • The most impractical way to live is unhappily — who is odd, adults or children

Inspire-Love-Be,
