Quote of the month

Last quote of the month here was January this 2019 year. Or is it another year? Did we count year 0? 

If we did not than why we counted year 2000?

Simple, isn't it? Yet it shows in which world we live. 

In the world of classifying, statistics, codification and coming artificial intelligence"revolution" and "progress" where it matters if you are "best selling" of anything, especially best selling of different techniques of manipulation. 

In that, today's, world we need to be sure what does it mean to be human, as to escape the feeling of frog being slowly cooked with all this idiotic surrogates trying to replace our awareness of humanity, deceiving us with all this"benefits" of synthetic advancement. 

Refuse to be commodity! 

Instead be human and 

"To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget. "

Arundhati Roy

Happy awaking to awareness.

QUOTE OF THE MONTH JANUARY 2019

Hope that quote of the month of January will make you think and feel. 

Better FELL we guess. 

 

"Intellect and love are made of two different materials. Intellect ties people in knots and risks nothing, but love dissolves all tangles and risks everything. Intellect is always cautious and advises, “Beware too much ecstasy,” whereas Love says, “Oh never mind. Take the plunge!” Intellect does not easily break down, whereas love can effortlessly reduce itself to rubble. But treasures are hidden amongst ruins. A broken heart hides treasure."

Taken from The Forty Rules of Love by Elif Shafak.

QUOTE OF THE MONTH DECEMBER 2018

With best wishes for new year 2019 here is the quote of Nikola Tesla.

Food for thought.

As we are bombarded with present time stories and moments and "only now" saying, it is interesting to remember  that Nikola Tesla said

something like -The present is theirs. Mine is the future. I work for the future!-

Can meaning of life be

- Work for the future-?!

Every day give something to stay, after you have passed away from the form and shape you are now experiencing. 

 

Quote:

"When we speak of man, we have a conception of humanity as a whole, and before applying scientific methods to the investigation of his movement we must accept this as a physical fact. But can anyone doubt to-day that all the millions of individuals and all the innumerable types and characters constitute an entity, a unit? Though free to think and act, we are held together, like the stars in the firmament, with ties inseparable. These ties cannot be seen, but we can feel them. I cut myself in the finger, and it pains me: this finger is a part of me. I see a friend hurt, and it hurts me, too: my friend and I are one. And now I see stricken down an enemy, a lump of matter which, of all the lumps of matter in the universe, I care least for, and it still grieves me. Does this not prove that each of us is only part of a whole? For ages this idea has been proclaimed in the consummately wise teachings of religion, probably not alone as a means of insuring peace and harmony among men, but as a deeply founded truth. The Buddhist expresses it in one way, the Christian in another, but both say the same: We are all one. Metaphysical proofs are, however, not the only ones which we are able to bring forth in support of this idea. Science, too, recognizes this connectedness of separate individuals, though not quite in the same sense as it admits that the suns, planets, and moons of a constellation are one body, and there can be no doubt that it will be experimentally confirmed in times to come, when our means and methods for investigating psychical and other states and phenomena shall have been brought to great perfection. Still more: this one human being lives on and on. The individual is ephemeral, races and nations come and pass away, but man remains. Therein lies the profound difference between the individual and the whole."

Nikola Tesla

QUOTE OF THE MONTH

It is about a month we have a QUOTE OF THE DAY at our Facebook page.

We are introducing a QUOTE OF THE MONTH here. The first one is a quote of G.I.GURDIJEFF found in his book...

 

"My dear, now deceased, grandmother was then still alive and was a hundred and some years old. When my grandmother—may she attain the Kingdom of Heaven—was dying, my mother, as was then the custom, took me to her bedside and, as I kissed her right hand, my dear grandmother placed her dying left hand on my head and said in a whisper, yet very distinctly: "Eldest of my grandsons! Listen and always remember my strict injunction to you: In life never do as others do." Having said this, she gazed at the bridge of my nose and, evidently noticing my perplexity and my obscure understanding of what she had said, added somewhat angrily and imperiously: "Either do nothing—just go to school—or do something nobody else does."
