Be cheerful, friendly and hopeful by H.-J. John

Look out the window. Is it raining?

Nature needs the water.

Is the sun shining? The harvest needs the dryness.

Look inside your heart. There it is the same. Tears let sadness grow.

Sun and kindness transform it into joy and hope.

Cheerfulness, kindness and hope will help you and others through every new day.

Broadcasting or receiving? by H.-J. John

A wonderful day. And you are right in the middle.
Take a deep breath.
Look in the mirror.
Caress your left forearm.
You feel and see yourself and everything will be fine.
Will you be broadcasting or receiving today? Will you apply yourself and get involved or have an open ear?
Only a few master both. Simultaneously.

Alone or in a herd? by H.-J. John

Look around and choose wisely.
School, career, family, children?
Do you go with the herd or will you march alone?

Look around and choose wisely.
In the safety and comfort and the dust of the herd you can hardly see the way.
Alone you are lonely and see the herd, the path, and the risks.

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.

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

Are you sick?

Do you feel discriminated against and abandoned by fate?

Sit down.

Make a list of all those who are worse off and who suffer more.

If that does not help, make a list of those who have been as bad off or worse over the past millennia.

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!
