Sometimes we have to let go of people in our lives, not because we want them gone, but because we realize that they have already let go of us, – or maybe they never were there for us in the first place either.
ONE SO TRUE,
I LOVE YOU!

Make no mistake – people will hurt you.
Make no mistake – the people hurting you are guilty, but you share a piece of the guilt cause you allowed the hurt to reach you.
Make no mistake – nobody is responsible for fixing the pain they caused you. It is you, and you alone who are responsible for fixing yourself.
DO NOT take anything personally.
If you do, you risk becoming what they say you are, or what they make you feel like or worse; fear you are. Correct their views or actions in a calm way if you can, but never be upset with their response. If you take their opinions or actions to heart, they have already changed you in the direction of what they believe you are or wish you were. For better or worse.
Don’t be what people tell you that you are. Be what you are. Or change, if you no longer want to be what you have become.
And again they will ask you to fight something or somebody. Fight the government. Fight the media. Fight the banks. Fight the president.
Do not listen. Do not ever fight against someone of something no matter how bad they are.
Fight for something.
If you fight against something or somebody, without having an idea about what should replace it, you will create chaos. And chaos is worse than any oppressive order.
Chaos is a ladder. For psychopaths. Do not fight against ideas, institutions, people, roles. Fight for ideas, people, roles only.
Don’t fight against somebody or something together with all the others hating on the present state of affairs, unless most of you agree on what to replace it with.
Do not be just another useful idiot for those who have an agenda. Rather get your own agenda, and then fight for it.
Wake up. Find your values. Or continue to destroy anything with meaning by running around in hoards destroying the old and replacing it with chaos. Wake up to having real opinions, real values. Be for something. Not against.
Let others learn their own lessons.
Don’t force anyone to the right path, but also never forget to point them to it, if you see it. Let them choose their path, even if they choose the wrong path.
Lessons can only be learned when people feel free. Only then will they assume responsibility and truly learn.
We seem to always be in the middle of things we start.
Good people base their intentions on love and seek freedom for all.
Bad people base their intentions in fear and seek power and control.
We perceive everything around us and within us with a hint of distortion. Some with a lot of distortion.
This means, that the ordinary reality we see is not real – it is a perceived reality.
Our perceptions create the reality we see around us, and that is why people see so different realities so often, for better or for worse. This is true for all of us, no matter how developed we are.
If you follow fun, misery follows you. If you follow knowledge, happiness follows you.
– Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
When you trust somebody completely, without hesitation, without holding back, there are two possible outcomes : you get a person for life, or a lesson for life.
