Sweet Lies

You want to save the world, start by saving yourself.

Is that more difficult? Right, it’s because you are more important than the world

You want to put order in the world, start by putting order in your life.

Is that more difficult? Right, it’s because your life is more important

You fight for human rights in the world, start by respecting your girlfriend, your mom, and beyond respect yourself

Is that more difficult? Right, it’s because you and your family are more important

You want to protect your family from hardship, start by protecting them from yourself, you anger, violence and meanness.

Is that more difficult? Right, it’s because your family means more than material wealth.

You want to help Africa, start by loving yourself.

Is that more difficult? Right, it’s because a nude man can’t give out a shirt.

Some people beat their wife and kids at home, but go out to fight for peace in the world.

Some people have messy and undisciplined life, but go out lavishly giving advice on how to rule the world, manage public affaires.

Some people have no plan about their own life, but go out to forecast the future of the universe.

Some people make those around them to live in fear, but go out with bright smile preaching for human dignity and love for each other.

Some people are fed by others, but go out to be loud about freedom and independence.

The most difficult thing for humans is to stop lying to themselves.

It’s so difficult that lies become more comfortable than the truth.

People who are afraid often repeat some phrases to themselves. Like  Krishnamurti put it “The constant assertion of belief is an indication of fear

Stop lying to yourself, and see how your life blossom.
