Most of us are familiar with the name
Vincent Van Gogh, whose paintings' are not only worth so much money, but full of meanings, and infinity. Vincent Van Gogh was an obscure figure, unpopular, and labeled as insane. That's our world today, we label people, and call hopeless romantics and idealists, "not normal", radicals, subversives, and many other name calling. Many great thinkers and doers were advanced, not only in their thinking, but in their visions.
Good and evil. Good is infinite, and evil is finite. All ends except GOOD is FOREVER.
Tribulations, challenges and success.
Many failed because they did not try, or made an effort to be different.
We measure success by material standards. Material is finite. If your success is measured by your money, wealth, popularity, knowledge and titles...they end forever. You will be forgotten.
On life. Material life is finite. So, what is the rush ?
On forgiveness. It is hard. It takes time.
On Love. Perennial as the grass, and infinite.
God is LOVE. Why are we arguing, and fighting about faith, and God ? If God is LOVE, therefore religion is LOVE not hate.
On people. None pass the test except, those who discover themselves in time.
People are finite, and flesh (material). They end. Though, it is worth trying to help people. Do not seek thank you, or pay back, you will be frustrated. People can be ungrateful. Help them because your heart tells you to help. People changes. People can be hot and cold. People can be confusing. People can be kind, and ruthless.
People are people. Why depend on people ?
On TRUST. Trust not yourself or others. Change is, your nemesis. Love people but do not trust them to love you back. Care for people but do not expect care from them. Be just and fair to people, so others will be just and fair to you.
If they are not just and fair to you, you just achieved your hero status, and martyrdom.
On race. Racism is every race under the sun.
On death. It is the beginning of life.
On birth. Your preparation for life.
On heaven. No one seen heaven. Accept yourself, I think it is heaven. Embrace your imperfections, I think it is eternity. Believe in a LOVING GOD, not necessarily a form of religion.
On hell. When you hate others. When you hate yourself. When you hate the day you were born. When you are jealous of others. When you are greedy. When you are idle. When you are adulterous. When you dishonor your parents. When you love money. When you seek titles and comfort. When you indulged in pleasure and gluttony. When you fear death. When you do not believe in God.
On health. Ask God for health, God will grant your wish from your heart.
On marriage. Marriage is good, but LOVE is better.
On children. They have your last name, but, they are not yours to keep.
On happiness. When you stop complaining for being bored and lonely.
On pleasure. We are flesh, but we can overcome hedonism.
