For the suffering by H.-J. John

Do you feel mistreated? Do not think about it. Go forth and imitate the person who treats you poorly. If he hits you 1,000 times, hit him once. If he accuses you for years, accuse him once. If he betrays you constantly, betray him once. Do you feel better? Then let him feel that you… Continue reading For the suffering by H.-J. John

Are you a consumer or a producer? by H.-J. John

Drive to the nearest big city. Go to the busiest shopping street. Visit at least three stores with goods that you would like to possess. Now go back. At home, sit in your favorite chair.

Our stars by H.-J. John

Look at the stars tonight. Find yourself a couple of the biggest and brightest. Secure your goals and aspirations to them like you would to ropes. The stars need the ropes and restraints less than you. Have faith in yourself and you will achieve everything at the right time. © 2011 Hans-Jürgen John

Where do I stand? by H.-J. John

Experience consciously by H.-J. John

Every moment is precious. Start with the first minute after waking. Count the 60 seconds, by following the hand of your watch or clock radio. The joy and fulfillment, every moment can bring us. You alone choose whether thoughts of the past or the future hijack your consciousness. Live consciously and today! © 2011 Hans-Jürgen… Continue reading Experience consciously by H.-J. John
