My favorite quote

26 Sep

For this is what we do. Put one foot forward and then the other. Lift our eyes to the snarl and smile of the world once more. Think. Act. Feel. Add our little consequence to the tides of good and evil that flood and drain the world. Drag our shadowed crosses into the hope of another night. Push our brave hearts into the promise of a new day. With love: the passionate search for a truth other than our own. With longing: the pure, ineffable yearning to be saved. For so long as fate keeps waiting, we live on. God help us. God forgive us. We live on.

(Gregory David Roberts, “Shantaram”)

Book review. Shantaram.

24 Sep

Although Shantaram, novel by Gregory David Roberts, is nothing new, I came across it just a little while ago. I should say it is now one of my all time favorite books.

I laughed and I cried while reading it; and when it was over I thought that a little part of my life has come to end together with it. It might sound too dramatic to somebody,but that is how I felt about it.

Story is about battle between good and bad, past and future, hatred and love.

It shows human struggle with it’s inner demons and hunger to be saved; and helps us realise that every evil can be overcome: „Every human heartbeat is a universe of possibilities. Every human will have the power to transform its fate. The truth is that, no matter what kind of game you find yourself in, no matter how good or bad the luck, you can change your life completely with a single thought or a single act of love.”

No matter what your goal is and no matter what other say, to overcome evil in yourself or others it is not possible to do the wrong thing for the right reason.

To forgive and to accept…Hatred and vengeance destroys… Simplicity and pure heart is everything – that what it’s all about.

Escalate your consciousness!

I created a list of qualities, that I admire in others and that I want to develop and train. While those, which I already have, I should not lose. This could also be seen as a kind of mission for the following year for me 🙂
I truly believe, that these personal qualities and capabilities make people’s lives easier and more successful.
I can only wish that everyone would have most of these abilities. And each should be sure of what they are truly thrilled about in life.

Characteristics to develop:

enthusiasm for the mission of my life

belief in one’s actions

its ability to develop

self-confidence and inner peace

self-possession

communication skills

personal attractiveness

ability to properly treat people

integrity and directness

its goal clarity

charm

ability to admire

pleased to make decisions

positive perception of life

ability not to compare.

Izveidoju sarakstu ar īpašībām, kuras es citos cilvēkos apbrīnoju un kuras vēlos sevī attīstīt un trenēt.  Savukārt tās, kuras man jau piemīt, jācenšas nepazaudēt. Šo varētu arī uzskatīt kā sava veida uzdevumu turpmākajam gadam 🙂 Es ticu, ka šīs personības īpašības un spējas atvieglo dzīvi un padara to veiksmīgāku. Varu tikai novēlēt, lai visiem piemistu lielākā daļa no šīm spējām, un katrs būtu pārliecināts par to, kas viņu dzīvē sajūsmina un valdzina.

Lietas, ko attīstīt sevī:

sajūsma par savu dzīves uzdevumu

ticība savai rīcībai

savu spēju attīstīšana

pašpārliecinātība un iekšējs miers

nosvērtība

komunikācijas prasme

personiskā pievilcība

spēja pareizi izturēties pret cilvēkiem

godprātīgums un tiešums

mērķa skaidrība

šarms

spēja sajūsmināties

prieks pieņemt lēmumus

pozitīva dzīves uztvere

nesalīdzināšana.
