„The climate change is the biggest problem of our time.
And a massive opportunity for the person who solve it.“

 

„Der Klimawandel ist das grösste Problem unserer Zeit.
Und eine riesige Chance für den, der es löst.“

All suffering comes from the inability to stand pain. As long as these two, suffering and pain, are not distinguished with the razor-sharp sword of wisdom, we will continue to suffer. But it would be incorrect to say, that we are indeed able, but unwilling, because no one likes to suffer. There is a flash of awareness, when we perceive the possibility, yet being able to, in a way, that is given to us. Not from a God outside of us, as if this would play favorites. I can’t describe any way to that place. I just know that it happens sometimes. And this awareness causes immediately complete relief.

Apropos „letting go“,
one of the most popular words of the „spirit elite“:
(- one might be tired of hear it):

What I am, never want to let go,
and what God is, need nothing to let go.

„As far as we can discern,
the sole purpose of human existence
is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.“

Carl Gustav Jung
