The Top 25 Songs That Matter Right Now
Once you accept yourself, you open the door to change. When you do so, you apologize for the truth. But to befriend the one who regards himself as your enemy is the quintessence of true religion. The other is mere business. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds.
The Big Leap Summary
The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense. The more uncivilized the man, the surer he is that he knows precisely what is right and what is wrong. All human progress, even in morals, has been the work of men who have doubted the current moral values, not of men who have whooped them up and tried to enforce them.
The truly civilized man is always skeptical and tolerant, in this field as in all others. A little less hypocrisy and a little more tolerance towards oneself can only have good results in respect for our neighbor; for we are all too prone to transfer to our fellows the injustice and violence we inflict upon our own natures.
Then they begin to hope it can be done. Then they see it can be done. Then it is done and all the world wonders why it was not done centuries ago. I have your review before me. In a moment it will be behind me. Somerset Maugham. A life without contradiction is only half a life; or else a life in the Beyond, which is destined only for angels.
But God loves human beings more than the angels. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens…. You not only refuse to shoot a man, but you refuse to hate him. Martin Luther King, Jr. It is the source of all true art and science.

- 37 Inspirational Quotes to Conquer Any Negativity in Your Life.
He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separate from the rest - a kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. In the depths of the human multitude there slumbers an immense spiritual power which will manifest itself only when we have learnt how to break through the dividing walls of our egoism and raise ourselves up to an entirely new perspective, so that habitually and in a practical fashion we fix our gaze on the universal realities.

We want something new but cannot let go of the old — old ideas, beliefs, habits, even thoughts. We are out of contact with our own genius. In both cases we have to do something. If you moved outside the atom you would see those electrons moving with a pattern around the atom. If you rise further above you see that atoms are actually the building blocks of larger structures called molecules.
And so it goes, on up the scale, ad infinitum. True creativity is allowing yourself to gain the loftiest perspective you can in relation to the object of your quandary or inquiry. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man. I merely found two thousand ways not to make a lightbulb.
But a moment is a long time, and thought is a painful process. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete. The first method is far more difficult.
Charge Up Your Life: Conquer the 6 Barriers to Love, Happiness, and Success by Ellen M. Diana
Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. Genius hits a target no one else can see. Genius must always have lapses proportionate to its triumphs. Practice should always be based on a sound knowledge of theory.
When you meet someone not as good as you are, look within and examine your own self. I think only how to solve the problem. But when I have finished, if the solution is not beautiful, I know it is wrong. Buckminster Fuller. We must make here a clear distinction between belief and faith, because, in general practice, belief has come to mean a state of mind which is almost the opposite of faith. The believer will open his mind to the truth on the condition that it fits in with his preconceived ideas and wishes.
Faith, on the other hand, is an unreserved opening of the mind to the truth, whatever it may turn out to be. Faith has no preconceptions; it is a plunge into the unknown. Belief clings, but faith lets go. In this sense of the word, faith is the essential virtue of science, and likewise of any religion that is not self-deception. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out? I am not able rightly to apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question. Just as GOTO allows control to go anywhere, a variable allows data to go anywhere.
Sometimes our actions are questions not answers. My beliefs I test on my body, on my intuitional consciousness, and when I get a response there, then I accept. One should always try both directions of every problem. Prejudice has caused famous mathematicians to fail to solve famous problems whose solution was opposite to their expectations, even though they had developed all the methods required.

As applied to software: design software as if it were the beautiful paradise you want it to be, then build pieces of the scaffolding back to the status quo. Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Always work with it, not against it. If it is perfectly acceptable, it turns into aliveness, alertness, and creativity. It means fear is no longer a dominant factor in what you do and no longer prevents you from taking action to initiate change.
If it is perfectly acceptable, it turns into aliveness, alertness and creativity. Conventional opinion is the ruin of our souls, something borrowed which we mistake as our own. Ignorance is better than this; clutch at madness instead. Always run from what seems to benefit your self: sip the poison and spill the water of life.
