The way to heaven is through hell, but lovers do not notice the clock, and, therefore, suffering too. A hell of a lot of sticky pleasure. All who are not in love will perish in them, succumbing to the temptations of vices.
What is Vice? A breath of freedom? A walk in the prison courtyard? Vice seems virtuous. The man himself put on the chains, and a good Vice periodically allows them to be removed. The secret is that the devil is a liar, at first he deceived you by saying that you were in chains, he made you suffer. And now he's drugging you, drinking in your love like a vampire, draining you of time and energy.
The last mile is a fly trap, something that sifts the grain from the chaff. If you have love in you, you will not be afraid of fear and hardships. Lovers do not notice the clock, and the last mile will be for you as an explosion and one moment. If there is no love in you, then you will be overcome by fear. Fear slows down time and turns the last mile into an infernal infinity. In the end, you will leave the race, not having endured such torment.
Faith is movement, and the devil is a symbol of falsehood, which tempts with sweet illusions or frightens with fears, hindering movement. By distracting a man from his work, the devil undermines his faith. Instead of doing business (that is, believing), a person is given to sweet dreams, illusions, and conversations with himself.
The purpose of the devil's temptations is to deprive you of your faith... that is, to restrict your movements. The devil undermines your faith with doubts. The devil tempts you with pleasure and rest... " Why should you go anywhere? - says the devil... - lie down, rest, and let it make itself. I'll give you everything, just wait."
An arbor for the rest of weary travelers may well be a trap, tempting you to go astray, indulging in idleness and sleep. They say that sleep in this gazebo is so sweet that few people manage to Wake up.
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.
There are no royal roads. A royal road is a trap for naive silly people. But... ...if one follows one's way, everything will be easy... But... ... one's own way is an exclusive one, the way without a crowd... The way of proud solitude...
It's Marathon runners who often win the pursuit of money… * It's sprinters who often win the pursuit of money. See it, grab it… run away… … Though you never know what may turn up. Long-distance and marathon runners may catch up and grab the money. Or even beat… Perhaps, it needs to be rephrased. One has to be as fit as a lop in order to pursue money. Though … holes and traps may still be on the way … Generally, as usual, it's the strongest, the smartest and the sliest who will win in the pursuit of money… * Money is not a thing to owe, try to make capital grow...
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.
When you take something, make sure you soon give something back so that not to owe anything. Otherwise you'll be in debt. Uncovered debts are like open windows and doors in winter: they let off warmth from the house. Beware of freebies and free cheese as you'll pay for them later.
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.
I recommend you to give up pleasure and entertainment. Don't get me wrong, a man can't indulge in pleasure and not be stupid. Pleasures turn off the brain. If you need a sharp brain, you have to give up entertainment such as movies, TV shows, books, games, social.networks, etc... You don't have to do anything for fun. The fun is light and sweet, which get stuck and die thought.
Luck is as dangerous as failure, it is luck that breeds failure. Luck is the comfort of setbacks, contrast, to lure flies on sticky tape. The point is to abstract from both of these phenomena and see the system.
It is especially dangerous when the wrong decision brings a good result. In this case, the person falls into drug dependence on the wrong decision and statistically turns into a lie, that is, falls into the abyss of problems.
Fools are cheated and manipulate more easily. This state of things tempts many leaders and managers to choose an easy path. The only issue is that the majority of easy paths lead into a trap. Yes, fools are easily cheated and controlled, but the key is that anyone who has force and intellect can use it. Zombies don't care whom to serve to. In these circumstances power is very vulnerable for sabotage and external threats. Any alien predator can come to this herd of sheep, put on sheep's clothes and get the whole herd on his side. In these circumstances power is unstable and very weak.
