Start at any cost. Start with a tremendous effort of will. Start and remember that as soon as you start, the stream will catch you, and you will fall like a stone down into the abyss. However, it will be even harder to finish than to start. Falling into the abyss can last indefinitely.
Do you know where exponential growth comes from? Everything goes in a circle. The first half of the way you climb the mountain with zeal, and what seems to you an explosive growth is a step into the abyss and a flight down with the acceleration of free fall to the next lower energy level. The lower the energy level, the more energy it has.
The main lie of pride is that you lack something. Pride is hunger, but the truth is that you always have a little more than you need. Pride is the fear that this excess is too small. "You are too close to the edge of the abyss" - your pride always lies to you.
A snake that eats itself doesn't actually kill anyone. In fact, it is a terrible beast, just a squirrel in the wheel. The easiest way to get to the beginning, to step right into the mouth of this monster. When you are eaten, you will be the first.
The disintegration of a system into chaos is its growth, through the division and increase of its constituent forms. Growth is very easy and does not require expenditure of energy in the process. However, if you show restraint to growth, this generates a process of energy release, turning the system into an energy generator.
The meaning of existence is that the disintegration of the system is the pursuit of perfection. To achieve perfection, you don't need any effort, you just need to relax and leave yourself to the endless fall into the abyss. Black is perfection, and white is imperfection.
The smaller the step, the easier it is to move. You can't jump a chasm in two steps, of course, but if you go down one side and up the other... or, for example, go around it. After all, we live in a limited world where everything has an end and a beginning.
Division of the system automatically generates multiplication of the system outside. The division of the system is a process of infinite fall, which does not require energy expenditure, but releases energy.
Man lives on the dam between Yin and Yang. Both light and darkness are water and softness, and the dam is hardness. This is the dam, which is the razor blade and the edge of the abyss. Man always lives on the edge of the abyss and the abyss that surrounds him on both sides. God is firmness. Man is firmness, and darkness and light only fight for the soul and mind of man, in order to decide among themselves which of them will serve firmness and which of softness.
Vehement flute music in the eyes' downfall, melts tin and brass into a bronze waterfall.
He smiled and his tooth melted like sugar sand, beyond the bounds of sound there came a clanking rattle.
The whisper roared making huge rocks sway, its full mouth chew time like dust on the way; down the cheeks and neck were streams of clock, red and white days on the shirt were in its blow, the years crooked the asphalt underfoot - thus the past got closer to the future at arm's length.
When a person grows wings. This person takes a step to the edge of an abyss to fly up and hears a voice behind... - Wait, you're going to fall and die! Don't do that! This moment this person feels fear and forgets about the wings... But the step has been taken... The person falls into the abyss...
Can stupidity forgive wits? Can ugliness forgive beauty? Can weakness forgive power? Can a disease forgive health? Can an injury forgive wholeness? Can poverty forgive wealth? Can pain forgive pleasure?
- It's not that the opposed things hate each other, but they seem to be mutually exclusive. Though, the bigger the chasm between them, the more dislike turns to hatred.
A helpless rage turns into hatred when one looks at something needed but sees only a chasm that one doesn't have enough strength to overcome.
The essence of equality is about eradicating this chasm as some bottomless source of hatred. Or at least to bridge every chasm. Even if crossing bridges may cost something, at least the bridges will exist.
Humbleness is a thing necessary for those rich and smart to disguise the bottomless chasm of hatred between themselves and common people. Because when a common person looks at this chasm and realizes there is not enough power to overcome it, this starts to feel strong hatred towards those on the other side of this chasm. That's why it's better for rich, clever, beautiful and strong people to be humble in order not to draw the hatred of those around them.
It's important for any state to make its citizens armed at least in order to protect ITSELF from its own stupidity and tendency for injustice.
It's impossible to build a democratic state in the society of the very strong and very weak ones. So, it's necessary to somehow make their opportunities and forces equal. Democracy is mutual respect between well-armed people. If we want society to be just, it's necessary to provide all people the opportunity to react to any injustice adequately.
One more thing. The society where every citizen is an armed warrior will never be under control of any external forces. As this society will be successful and known for justice. As any injustice together with an offended person's sniping rifle will soon be turned into justice.
Of course, it's also possible to narrow a gap between the weak and the strong ones by changes in the system of education or laws but it barely works in practice.
Mutual respect based on mutual fear, makes people very polite and civilized.
When someone steps in the abyss to fall- this someone falls. But does a bird look for a fall in the abyss? Certainly not. It looks for ascending air mass. It throws itself down in order to fly up. And it flies up.
Resignation is when you need to go straight and there is a precipice in front of you. However, you do not get disheartened because you recall some guy who walked on water and cling to the hope that air is not very different from water and, resignedly, you take a step into the abyss.
