In order to resist a temptation, it's not necessary to have great will power as many people think. It only takes sensibility and understanding towards the fact that a temptation is a worm on the hook. And if you try to swallow it, your life may never be happy again.
Everyone lies... People lie a lot especially about themselves and their relatives or fellows. Lie to seem better than they really are. Lie to avoid pauses in the conversation. Lie just for fun... That's why if they tell you something and it evokes some deep emotions or wonder in you, take it easy as there's a big probability it's a lie.
Vices are heavy. The longer you carry them, the heavier they get. Have they told you that Vice is the easy way? As always you have been deceived. The devil is the king of deception. All his joys and promises are lies.
Greed… greed… I see it as the heaviest human sin. I guess, greed is some kind of sadomasochism. Guess how many mice got into mousetraps because of free cheese. And how many snakes choked over something big that they tried to swallow… Or how much one overpaid… because of the desire to save money…
Greed may become the source of many sins...
It's greed that can make one do one's job badly because of trying to take shortcuts or save materials. Something done badly is a heavy sin. A lot of work was left half-done or gummed up because of greed. It's greed that can make a person throw money away and still get nothing. And pay twice as more later. Thus, it will be a sin of energy inefficiency.
There's hardly anything that is punished by destiny more than greed. Pain is greed's middle name.
Sly sellers like to program sellers by making them repeat after themselves “yes, yes, yes”. You should seize this moment and, at the most decisive moment, smile and firmly say “no”, because… slyness is a lie, and decent people do not deal with liars.
A barrel of honey will find on the fly, finding first the tar. A barrel of tar will find a spoonful of honey, finding first honey. Cheese in a mousetrap and other freebies - a spoonful of honey in a barrel of tar.
The devil builds Paradise in illusions, and God - in reality. But the devil invented a lie - a sham Paradise on earth, like cheese in a mousetrap, beckoning rats to his illusory Paradise. The problem with the Paradise of illusions is that he is afraid of time and inevitably plunges into the darkness of nothing. Millions of years of loneliness in the darkness alone with their vices are so terrible that the righteous always sympathize with sinful souls.
Fools see only advantages, but do not see shortcomings. That makes them the first cheese victim in a mousetrap. But the mousetrap does not make a fool better, but only turns him into his opposite, a fool who sees only flaws and nothing good.
You think there's nothing wrong about their ability to get your attention, that they managed to make you listen to them or watch their ads. But in fact, it's really awful. Advertising and video are modifiers of reality. Those people who once got your attention, can easily reprogram you and make you follow their desires. You don't believe me and you think you can resist. But it's a delusion. They will sow their desires into you and you will think it's your own desires but in fact you will become a puppet. Once they take control over your desires and thoughts, these people will become your owners. The only way to save freedom of thoughts is not to pay attention to something that tries to get your attention. Be a hunter, not a victim. Decide for yourself what you need and what you don't.
- Fishing in a baited location. - Using unique baits and lures. - Using standard baits. Playing the market. - Using highly specialized baits for specific fish. - Fishing where there are no other fishermen. - Fishing where there is a lot of other food, in which you have hidden your bait.
Red riding Hood is a symbol of bait and freebies, which catch wolves and then gut. We clearly see collusion mothers, grandmothers and girls. The girl lured the wolf, strongly hinting him to continue, the meeting, told where he is going, etc. the Naive little girl in a wild forest, it attracts attention, it is very suspicious. If you see that... run.
You can achieve salvation only if you fill your life with meaning, otherwise you are doomed. You know that too and, of course, you cannot stand boredom. The problem is, those who want to catch and eat you, also know that. Sticky flycatchers and cheese in mousetraps look very delicious. Temptations resulting from pleasures, power, entertainment and avarice are great at separating the grains from the chaff.
