@bondojoe One of my personal favourites. Funny, whenever I use it online I get mis-identified as a Nietzsche follower. I feel that many philosophers have something interesting, and something absolutely nuts, none of them are perfect. Philosophy, after all, is just reason and sometimes humans aren't the most reasonable due to prejudice of experience. lol smiley

“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his 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.”
~ Albert Einstein ~

@RAVENOUSbird Well, I didn't put Freud down there, because ther's some doubt that he ever actually said it. But if no one can attribute it to him, then I"M claiming it! Maybe I should have put my name after it!

@bondojoe Maybe Groucho Marx did, too? He loved cigars. Dunno! Sounds like it could be Freud with the phallic symbol shaped cigar. smiley

@Athb007 Not liking the smell or taste of cigars, I find just simplifying more palatable. Cigars smell like burning sh*te to me. Yuck. haha

@RAVENOUSbird I must disagree! No offense meant! We are ALL convinced our opinion is superior. "Healthy narcissism is the characteristic of possessing realistic self-esteem without being cut off from a shared emotional life, as the unhealthy narcissist tends to be."

@bondojoe I don't agree that my opinion is "superior" in any regard.

Healthy self-esteem is what is clearly meant there to me (your quote). smiley

Not narcissism (by definition: extreme selfishness, with a grandiose view of one's own talents and a craving for admiration, as characterizing a personality type. PSYCHOANALYSIS:self-centredness arising from failure to distinguish the self from external objects, either in very young babies or as a feature of mental disorder).

So it's kind of a misuse of the word narcissism, by whoever coined the phrase. smiley

@bondojoe Why would you be sorry? I'm a very happy, contented person, who listens and connects.

Narcissists, on the other hand, are not and do not care in the slightest for the well being of others. They have grandiose ideas that compromise anyone that gets in their way of getting the attention they crave.

In terms of narcissism, it's a mental illness and more disasters have occurred historically, including murders, than nations being built.

That's sad to me.

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition."... Steve Jobs

Life is all about pushing through the tough times, believing always that the good times are just around the corner. How we cope with situations is totally up to us. We could either complain about things that don't seem right or look at everything that comes our way as an opportunity. Positive thinking is the key to progress and success in both our personal and professional life.

“Live life fully while you’re here. Experience everything. Take care of yourself and your friends. Have fun, be crazy, be weird. Go out and screw up! You’re going to anyway, so you might as well enjoy the process. Take the opportunity to learn from your mistakes: find the cause of your problem and eliminate it. Don’t try to be perfect; just be an excellent example of being human.”

“We join spokes together in a wheel,
but it is the center hole
that makes the wagon move.

We shape clay into a pot,
but it is the emptiness inside
that holds whatever we want.

We hammer wood for a house,
but it is the inner space
that makes it livable.

We work with being,
but non-being is what we use.”
― Lao Tzu

“Jesus Christ knew he was God.
So wake up and find out eventually who you really are.
In our culture, of course, they’ll say you’re crazy and you’re blasphemous, and they’ll either put you in jail or in a nut house (which is pretty much the same thing).
However if you wake up in India and tell your friends and relations, ‘My goodness, I’ve just discovered that I’m God,’ they’ll laugh and say, ‘Oh, congratulations, at last you found out.”
― Alan W. Watts

Breathe, breathe in the air.
Don't be afraid to care.
Leave but don't leave me.
Look around and choose your own ground.

Long you live and high you fly
And smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry
And all you touch and all you see
Is all your life will ever be.

Run, rabbit run.
Dig that hole, forget the sun,
And when at last the work is done
Don't sit down it's time to dig another one.

For long you live and high you fly
But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race towards an early grave.

“A good traveler has no fixed plans
and is not intent upon arriving.
A good artist lets his intuition
lead him wherever it wants.
A good scientist has freed himself of concepts
and keeps his mind open to what is.

Thus the Master is available to all people
and doesn't reject anyone.
He is ready to use all situations
and doesn't waste anything.
This is called embodying the light.

What is a good man but a bad man's teacher?
What is a bad man but a good man's job?
If you don't understand this, you will get lost,
however intelligent you are.
It is the great secret.”
― Lao Tzu
