Good values VS bad values

We orientate our life according to our values. And we set our goals according to them.

Bad values make you dependent from external factors. Good values are achieved internally

Life is a constant problem solving - but which problems is important

Everyone of us struggles with problems in life. The difference is just what kind of problems. And what do you obtain if you solve them.

Suffering is part of life. But if you suffer due to problems that will make you achieve a goal you care about, the suffering is worth it. If you suffer for shitty values and unimportant problems you waste your significant life-time

Difference between responsability and fault

Everybody does mistakes. But in the presence you can take responsibility for them. Fault happend in the past. Focus on the present.

Whatever happend in the past stays in the past. Take responsability for the things that happens in the past, but don't focus on that. Focus on the actions you take today and be responsible for them. All of them.

Death pushes us to live

Life is limited by death. So, thanks to death we can either say it doesn't make sense to do anything at all (because we're gonna die anyway) or it can also be a reason to give in someone's fear of shame. Since it's all just a bunch of nothing anyway.

Without death everything would be inconsequential, all experience arbitrary and all values worth nothing.

How to really mess up your problem: with real life methods:

There are majorly two ways to really really mess up your problem. Any one of these is enough to make your life miserable.

  1. Denial of your problem:
  • The first step to actually start entangling your problem, is to deny that you have one. This thing, you can do when you just realise that you have a problem.

2. The victim mentality:

  • The second step, after you get into one problem, is blaming the outside circumstances for it. Remember, no outsider can be responsible for your inside chaos.

The desire for more positive experience is itself a negative experience. And, paradoxically, the acceptance of one’s negative experience is itself a positive experience.
