Patience

I don’t know if you noticed, but lately seems to be no place for patience in this world in which we live. We all want to quickly finish our studies, get a job with high salary, have a perfect relationship and many friends, but without putting much effort to it. I’m sorry, but Santa Claus doesn’t exist. Things don’t fall from the sky. Miracles don’t happen. Continue reading Patience

That elusive thing that is hidden deep inside of us, barely grasping for life. That little thing which humans successfully have learned how to keep under control and which comes out only when they plan to use it for manipulation. Yes. You read it right. “Humanity” becomes visible only when people can use it to gain something. Only when they think it is the only way to reach their cause. If this is true, then it looks like “humanity” has lost its meaning. Or maybe we are talking about something completely different?  Continue reading Humanity

Present

A few days ago I stumbled on a quote from Eckhart Tolle that made me think a lot about my life. He once said: “Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the NOW the primary focus of your life.” I used to believe that I’m one of those people who doesn’t care about the past nor the future and that I’m living only in the present. But after a lot of thinking, it’s safe to say that I’ve been mistaken. All this time my focus was the future and all the possible outcomes that could happen, making me completely lose sense of the present. Continue reading Present
