Sudden bursts and outbursts of energy create an energy hunger that is difficult to control. Keep going, keep going. Calmness and restraint will save you from starvation. Hunger is pride, the source of fear, lies, greed, and a Legion of other vices.
To accept is to let go. The excess desire is the cause of failure and resistance. Those who crave love and pleasure are doomed to lack them. Those who have accepted the small things will get everything they want and the hunger will pass.
Pride is ignorance of the kind when a person gives up power over the present for the hope of power over the future. Future fiercely resists the proud man, and now perishes from lack of love and attention.
The most important thing in communication is to learn to listen attentively. Don’t get distracted, don’t idly observe flies while reflecting upon the nature of eternity, but listen with great and vehement interest, soaking in every word and gesture of your interlocutor.
I'm trying to get a new thought out of making somebody's acquaintance. To galvanize a person into doing something useful is often a difficult thing to do. But often enough people share information easily, as well as give fresh ideas and galvanize into doing something useful.
Even really empty people may provide me with very interesting and unusual thoughts, or make me want to perform their job for them, and thus train well or just do a good thing...
Even idiots, causing a lot of problems are totally useful. Those problems that they cause make you muster all strength and make you stronger and better.
And if you happen to talk to a smart person, then you'll simply plunge into an ocean of pleasure. The main thing in it all is to have a subject for discussion, otherwise it's very difficult to get use out of a yuk-yuk. It's like fishing with one's hands in a lake...
The nicest people to talk to are cynics: they take the world as it is and don't try to change anything... kindly laughing at its imperfection.
And the most unbearable ones are idealists... they're always dissatisfied with everything, want to change something and somehow are always sure that everything and everyone is obliged to help them... to fit the world to their idealistic picture...
Revolutions happen when there comes a great hunger of the Creator, eager to create. From inability to create, he destroys the world, creating emptiness... They are waiting for the Creator, clearing the void for him...
Lack of love is lack of attention, lack of attention, that's what dislike is. That's stupid inattentive to my music and therefore they don't like it, but if you would have listened, INEC would be in a sense... would instantly fall in love and know true joy and delight of love.
For the neurotic rituals are very important, they give them peace and joy. In dealing with a neurotic should observe the ritual of communication. Neurotics are very suspicious and touchy, once they feel a deviation from the script, they will be seized with anxiety and bitter resentment.
From birth, a person has time and hunger. Hunger is transformed into desire. Satisfaction of desire causes love; dissatisfaction of desire causes fear and pain. Love makes a person spend his time on what he loves and what eliminates his hunger. And do not waste your time on what desire does not cause without satisfying hunger.
To be loved, you must satisfy their hunger, but if you satisfy their hunger, they will stop loving you. You need to catch the balance of light starvation, because hungry and undue expectations instead of love causes aggression and anger, scandal and conflict.
