THOUGHTS 2673 TO 2676

MY THOUGHTS 2673
WHEN YOU LOOK BACKWARDS, YOU CAN SEE WHERE YOU WERE AND THE CHOICES MADE. WHEN YOU FOCUS ON THE PRESENT, YOU CAN SEE WHERE YOU ARE AND WHAT CHOICES YOU ARE FACING. WHEN YOU LOOK TO THE FUTURE, YOU CAN SEE THE POSSIBILITIES AND THE CHOICES YOU MAY HAVE TO MAKE WHICH ARE BASED ON THE LESSONS FROM THE PAST AND THE PRESENT CHOICES YOU ARE IN THE PROCESS OF MAKING. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2674
YOU CAN ONLY FIND THE TRUE YOU BY GOING INWARD. YOU WILL ONLY FIND THE ILLUSION OF YOU BY LOOKING AT YOU FROM ONLY EXTERNAL PERSPECTIVES. USE THE EXTERNAL PERCEPTIONS OF YOU TO HELP YOU UNDERSTAND YOUR INTERNAL PERCEPTIONS OF YOU. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2675
WHEN A MEMBER OF YOUR CIRCLE SUCCUMBS TO ADDICTIVE MATERIALS, IT IS A LESSON FOR ALL THOSE CONNECTED TO THAT PERSON. FOR THAT PERSON, IT IS A VERY HARD LESSON THAT HE/SHE HAS TO FEEL COMPLETELY BEFORE THAT PERSON CAN TURN IT AROUND. FOR YOU AND OTHERS, IT IS TIME TO WALK AWAY AND ALLOW THAT PERSON TO LEARN. WHEN YOU ‘WALK AWAY’ IT PREVENTS HIM/HER FROM CONTINUING TO USE THE ‘POOR ME’ SYNDROME WHICH STRENGTHENS THE NEED TO ESCAPE LIFE THROUGH ADDICTIONS. BE CLOSE ENOUGH TO PROVIDE SUSTENANCE AND DISTANT ENOUGH TO ALLOW THEM TO LEARN. IF IT IS DIFFICULT FOR YOU, IT IS AN IMPORTANT LESSON FOR YOU, TOO. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2676
EXPRESSIONS OF LOVE 116: EACH PARTNER SHOULD CREATE A LIST OF FIVE EXPECTATION THAT THEY HAVE, AND THEN SIT DOWN AND DISCUSS EACH OTHER’S EXPECTATIONS. IF YOU HAVE HARD EXPECTATIONS THAT ARE TURNING INTO EXPECTANT DEMANDS, YOU MAY WANT TO RETHINK THEM AND TURN THEM INTO PREFERENCES. THAT WILL ALLOW COMPROMISES BASED ON MUTUAL COMPASSION AND LOVE FOR EACH OTHER. DO THIS PERIODICALLY TO MAINTAIN BALANCE AND HARMONY IN YOUR RELATIONSHIP. EmilKoval©2012

THOUGHTS 2669 TO 2672

MY THOUGHTS 2669
LESSONS FROM NATURE, 22: THE CHERRY TREE IS NATURE’S EXPRESSION OF BEAUTY AND PURITY. IT PROVIDES A FRUIT THAT IS BENEFICIAL TO YOUR NUTRITIONAL HEALTH AND A BALANCED SLEEP. IN EXCHANGE FOR THE CARBON DIOXIDE YOU PRODUCE, IT GIVES YOU OXYGEN, NUTRITION, HEALTH BENEFITS, AND A FEAST OF BEAUTY FOR YOUR SOUL. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS BREATH AND SHOW RESPECT FOR ITS EXISTENCE. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2670
BEING ALONE AND BEING LONELY ARE TWO DIFFERENT THINGS. BEING ALONE IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO REVITALIZE, TO RE-BALANCE, AND TO RE-AFFIRM YOU. BEING LONELY IS STAGNATING IN YOUR PERSONAL VOID THAT YOU WISH FILL WITH OTHER PEOPLE, BUT CANNOT. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2671
REMEMBER THAT TO BE ALONE, DOES NOT MEAN THAT YOU ARE LONELY. BEING ALONE IS YOUR TIME FOR PERSONAL SOLITUDE AND SPIRITUAL GROWTH, NOT LONELINESS. YOU ARE LONELY WHEN YOU DESIRE TO BE WITH SOMEONE OR SOME PEOPLE AND CANNOT. ‘BEING LONELY’ REQUIRES MELANCHOLY FEELINGS. BEING ALONE DOES NOT. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2672
EXPRESSIONS OF LOVE 115: SIT DOWN WITH YOUR PARTNER AND DISCUSS BOTH OF YOUR EXPECTATIONS AND PREFERENCES IN YOUR RELATIONSHIP. IF YOUR EXPECTATIONS START TURNING INTO CONFLICT, TURN THEM INTO PREFERENCES TO RESTART THE DISCUSSIONS. EmilKoval©2012

THOUGHTS 2665 TO 2668

MY THOUGHTS 2665

LESSONS FROM NATURE, 21: WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND AND COOPERATE WITH NATURE, NATURE WILL COOPERATE WITH YOU. DO NOT LIVE ON THE RIVER, LIVE SAFELY CLOSE TO A RIVER ABOVE THE FLOOD PLAIN. THE RIVER WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH SUSTENANCE, WATER, AND MEDITATION. THE WALK TO ITS BANKS WILL PROVIDE EXERCISE FOR YOUR BODY. PROTECT THE RIVERS FROM POLLUTION AND ALLOW THEM TO FLOW NATURALLY SO THAY THEY CAN GIVE YOU MANY OF THE GIFTS OF THE HAVE TO OFFER. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2666

QUESTION: DO YOU HAVE THE COURAGE TO FIND THAT BALANCE BETWEEN THE YIN AND YANG OF CULTURAL AND SOCIAL BARRIERS TO ACHIEVE A MUTUALLY SPIRITUAL BALANCE? EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2667

BLESSINGS: BLESSINGS AND HAPPINESS TO BOTH YOU AND YOUR PARTNER AS YOU WALK YOUR PATHS AND MAY ALL YOUR CHOICES BE THOSE THAT ENLIGHTEN YOUR SPIRITS AND YOUR UNION. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2668

EXPRESSIONS OF LOVE 114: THERE ARE THREE BASIC TYPES OF EXPECTATIONS: FUNDAMENTALS OF RELATIONSHIP EXPECTATIONS, BEHAVIORAL EXPECTATIONS, AND VALUE EXPECTATIONS. THE FUNDAMENTALS OF RELATIONSHIP EXPECTATIONS CENTER AROUND YOUR MARRIAGE VOWS, YOUR FINANCIAL PLANS, AND YOUR PARENTAL GOALS. BEHAVIORAL EXPECTATIONS SHOULD BE TURNED INTO PREFERENCES SO THAT THE RELATIONSHIP CAN HAVE REASONABLE FLEXIBILITY. YOUR VALUES EXPECTATIONS SHOULD BE BASED ON MORAL, CULTURAL, AND SPIRITUAL VALUES. EmilKoval©2012

THOUGHTS 2661 TO 2664

MY THOUGHTS 2661
QUESTION: WOULD YOU HELP SOMEONE WHO WAS OPPRESSED BY YOUR SOCIETY ACHIEVE HIS/HER RIGHT TO EQUALITY IF THEY WANT YOU TO BE PUNISHED FOR YOUR SOCIETY’S PAST TRANSGRESSIONS? EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2662
QUESTION: WHICH WOULD YOU SUPPORT, EQUALITY WITH COMPASSION FOR ALL OR EQUALITY WITH RETRIBUTION? EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2663
THOSE WHO SEEK AND ACHIEVE EQUALITY AND WANT RETRIBUTION WILL BECOME LIKE THEIR OPPRESSORS AND BE DOOMED TO FAILURE. THOSE WHO SEEK AND ACHIEVE EQUALITY WITH COMPASSION, EVEN FOR THEIR OPPRESSORS, WILL SUCCEED AND GROW SPIRITUALLY. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2664
EXPRESSIONS OF LOVE 113: WHEN YOUR RELATIONSHIP IS BASED ON PREFERENCES, THERE ARE MANY OPPORTUNITIES FOR COMPROMISE AND GROWTH. WHEN YOUR RELATIONSHIP IS BASED ON EXPECTATION, THERE IS THE DANGER THAT THOSE EXPECTATIONS WILL TURN INTO DEMANDS WHICH DIMINISHES OPPORTUNITIES FOR COMPROMISE AND INCREASES THE OPPORTUNITY FOR SERIOUS CONFLICT. WHEN YOU REPLACE YOUR EXPECTATIONS IN A RELATIONSHIP WITH PREFERENCES, YOU ARE EXPRESSING YOUR COMPASSION, LOVE, AND RESPECT FOR YOUR PARTNER. EmilKoval©2012

THOUGHTS 2657 TO 2660

MY THOUGHTS 2657
BE AWARE THAT EVERYONE FUNCTIONS ON DIFFERENT RHYTHMIC LEVELS. FIND AND CONNECT WITH THOSE WHO FLOW ON YOUR RHYTHMIC LEVELS. BE RESPECTFUL OF THOSE ON DIFFERENT RHYTHMIC LEVELS THAN YOURS. THEY HAVE VERY DIFFERENT LESSONS TO LEARN. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2658
WHEN YOU HESITATE TO DE-CLUTTER NEGATIVE PEOPLE FROM YOUR LIFE, YOU ARE ONLY HURTING YOU AND DELAYING YOUR SPIRITUAL GROWTH. YOU HAVE COME HERE TO LEARN THE LESSONS YOU NEED FOR YOUR SPIRITUAL ENHANCEMENT. TO DO THIS YOU MUST BE FOCUSED ON YOU. THAT MEANS THAT YOU SHOULD NOT BE SELFISH NOR SELFLESS. YOU MUST BE SELF-FULLED BY BEING THE BEST THAT YOU CAN BE. WHEN YOU ARE SELF-FULLED YOU WILL BE ABLE TO HELP OTHERS TO BE THEIR BEST. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2659
THE GOAL OF EVERY GREAT TEACHER IS NOT TO GET THE STUDENT TO THINK LIKE THE TEACHER, BUT TO GET THE STUDENT TO THINK BEYOND THE TEACHER. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2660
EXPRESSIONS OF LOVE 112: REMEMBER THAT YOUR PARTNER ACCEPTS YOU WITH ALL YOUR FLAWS, NOISES, AND EMOTIONS AS YOUR BODY AND MIND CHANGES WITH AGE. IF YOUR EYE WONDERS TO ANOTHER, REMEMBER THAT OTHER PERSON SEES ONLY THE BEST PROJECTION OF YOU. THEY DO NOT TRULY SEE YOUR FLAWS AND HEAR THE INTERESTING SOUNDS YOUR BODY MAY MAKE, WHICH MAY CAUSE THEM TO REJECT YOU. IT IS BETTER TO REKINDLE YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR PRESENT PARTNER WHO KNOWS MORE ABOUT YOU THAN YOUR MOTHER DOES. EmilKoval©2012

THOUGHTS 2653 TO 2656

MY THOUGHTS 2653

LESSONS FROM NATURE, 20: THE EXTREME WEATHER SWINGS THAT MANY PEOPLE ARE EXPERIENCING ARE NATURE’S REMINDER TO HUMANKIND TO GET IN LINE WITH NATURE AND BE A COOPERATIVE PARTNER ON THIS PLANET. WORKING WITH NATURE IS REWARDING TO HUMANKIND. WORKING AGAINST NATURE IS DESTRUCTIVE TO HUMANKIND. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2654

MANY SEEK TO TRANSFORM THEMSELVES SPIRITUALLY. HOWEVER, ONLY THROUGH INTROSPECTION, CAN INNER PEACE TRULY TRANSFORM YOU. TO OPEN THAT DOOR TO INNER PEACE, THROUGH INTROSPECTION, YOU BEGIN TO REMOVE THE MATERIAL CLUTTER AND THE PEOPLE CLUTTER BLOCKING THAT DOOR TO INNER PEACE. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2655

THE BEST WAY TO EMPOWER YOURSELF IS TO RELEASE ‘YOUR’ ANGER THROUGH FORGIVENESS. IT DOES NOT MATTER WHETHER THE OFFENDER ACCEPTS YOUR FORGIVENESS OR NOT. FORGIVENESS RELEASES YOU FROM THE CHAINS OF ANGER, SELF-PITY, BLAME, AND NEGATIVE EMOTIONS, WHICH DO STUNT YOUR SPIRITUAL GROWTH. FORGIVENESS EMPOWERS YOU, SUPPORTS YOUR MENTAL AND PHYSICAL HEALTH, AND CLEARS THE PATH TO SPIRITUAL MATURITY. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2656

EXPRESSIONS OF LOVE 111: EMPOWER YOUR PARTNER BY COMMUNICATING COMPASSIONATELY WITH HIM/HER WITH WELL CHOSEN INSPIRING WORDS AND ACTIONS. REMEMBER THAT ONE WORD SPOKEN IN ANGER IN ONE SECOND CAN CAUSE A WOUND THAT MAY TAKE YEARS TO HEAL. REMEMBER THAT YOUR PARTNER KNOWS YOU BETTER THAN YOUR OWM MOTHER DOES. BE LOVING AND COMPASSIONATE TO THOSE WHO KNOW YOUR INTIMATE SECRETS. EmilKoval©2012

THOUGHTS 2649 TO 2652

MY THOUGHTS 2649
FORGIVING IS EASY. JUST RELEASE YOUR ANGER. FORGETTING IS NOT POSSIBLE BECAUSE THE MORE YOU TRY TO FORGET, THE MORE YOU REMEMBER. HOWEVER, YOU MAY RELEGATE THAT PERSON TO A REMOTE CORNER OF YOUR MIND. HOWEVER, HE/SHE WILL ALWAYS BE THERE BECAUSE THEY HAVE MADE AN IMPRINT IN YOUR PSYCHE. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2650
‘FORGIVE AND FORGET’ IS A COMMONLY EXPRESSED AXIOM. IT SHOULD BE CHANGED TO “FORGIVE AND DO NOT MENTION AGAIN.” ANY NEGATIVE EVENT OR PERSON WILL HAVE CREATED A DEEP IMPRINT IN YOUR PSYCHE. HOWEVER, YOU CAN GO INWARD AND DIGEST IT FULLY TO THE POINT THAT CAN YOU CAN TURN THAT NEGATIVE INTO A POSITIVE. THEN YOU CAN RELEASE YOUR PERSONAL ANGER AND RELEGATE THE MEMORY OF THE NEGATIVE EVENT TO REMOTE CORNER OF YOUR MIND’S LIBRARY. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2651
WHEN YOU FORGIVE SOMEONE FOR A HURT, HOW HE/SHE REACTS IS NOT IMPORTANT. SHE/HE DO NOT EVEN HAVE TO KNOW THAT YOU HAVE FORGIVEN THEM. FORGIVING IS RELEASING YOUR ANGER WHICH BENEFITS YOU PHYSICALLY, MENTALLY, AND SPIRITUALLY. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2652
YOU SHOULD CREAT POSITIVE MEMORIES THROUGHOUT YOUR LIFE. THEY WILL ALWAYS BE WITH YOU AND BRING SWEET MEMORIES WHEN YOU NEED THEM DURING TRYING TIMES IN YOUR LIFE. SPECIALLY, WHEN YOU REACH YOUR ELDERLY YEARS. EmilKoval©2012
