THOUGHTS 2913 TO 1916

MY THOUGHTS 2913
YOU CAN CHOOSE WHOM YOU LET INTO YOUR LIFE AND WHAT LEVEL YOU WILL COMMUNICATE WITH THEM. WHEN YOU LOOK AT PEOPLE NEGATIVELY, THAT IS A REFLECTION OF A NEGATIVITY WITH YOU. HOWEVER, IF SOMEONE IS NEGATIVE TOWARDS YOU, IT IS A REFLECTION OF THE HIM/HER, NOT A REFLECTION OF YOU. IF POSSIBLE, AVOID NEGATIVE PEOPLE. REMEMBER THAT YOUR ‘CHOSEN’ FRIENDS ARE A REFLECTION OF YOU. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2914
AT SOME POINT ON YOUR DHARMIC PATH YOU WILL DISCOVER THAT FINDING INNER PEACE AND ENLIGHTENMENT IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN POLITICS, MATERIAL GAINS, OR SOCIAL STANDINGS. IF YOU ARE THERE, DO NOT JUDGE OTHERS WHO ARE NOT THERE YET. THEY STILL HAVE IMPORTANT LESSONS TO LEARN BEFORE THEY GET THERE. SEND THEM YOUR LOVE, UNDERSTANDING, AND COMPASSION TO HELP THEM ON THERE WAY. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2915
AT SOME POINT YOU WILL DISCOVER THAT LONGEVITY IS NOT AS IMPORTANT AS LIVING A LIFE OF SPIRITUAL QUALITY. LONGEVITY MEANS YOU EITHER HAVE KARMIC LESSONS TO YET LEARN, OR YOU ARE TOO ATTACHED TO THIS MATERIAL WORLD. FIND YOUR BALANCE BETWEEN YOUR SPIRITUALITY AND THE MATERIAL WORLD YOU LIVE. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2916
WHEN YOU GROW BEYOND YOUR BIRTH FAITH REMEMBER THAT THE BUDDHA DID NOT RESENT HINDUISM, THE CHRIST DID NOT RESENT JUDAISM, AND MOHAMMED EMPHASIZED REPECT FOR THE PEOPLES OF THE BOOK. NEITHER TRIED TO DESTROY THEIR BIRTH FAITHS. THEY MERELY PRESENTED ANOTHER APPROACH TO THE PROBLEMS IN THE WORLD AROUND THEM. EmilKoval©2012

THOUGHTS 2909 TO 2912

MY THOUGHTS 2909
TEACHING: A TRUE TEACHER DOES NOT HAVE TO REMINDED THAT HIS/HER STUDENTS ARE PARTNERS IN THE SHARING KNOWLEDGE. WE ALL ARE REALLY TEACHERS ON DIFFERENT LEVELS SHARING OUR KNOWLEDGE AND PERCEPTIONS OF THE TOPIC WE ARE DEALING WITH. ANY SINCERE TEACHER WILL CONSIDER HIM/HERSELF A SHARER OF KNOWLEDGE, NOT A PREACHER OF KNOWLEDGE. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2910
LIFE IS A COMPLEX WEB OF RELATIONSHIPS. THAT IS WHAT MAKES LIFE INTERESTING. TO COPE, ONE MUST START BY SETTING ONE’S PRIORITIES IN PROPER ORDER. YOU CAN NOT PLEASE EVERYONE. HOWEVER, YOU CAN BE KIND TO EVERYONE WITHIN YOUR PRESENT LIMITS. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2911
SUGGESTION 029: PUT YOUR PRIORITIES IN ORDER: SELF, PARTNER, AND CHILDREN; SELF, FAMILY, AND FRIENDS; NEEDS, WANTS, AND DESIRES, PEOPLE, THINGS, AND MONEY. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2912
QUESTION 259: WHEN YOU COMPETE, DO YOU PRAY TO YOUR GOD TO WIN OR TO MAKE YOUR COMPETITOR LOSE, OR DO YOU PRAY TO DO YOUR BEST IN THAT COMPETITION? EmilKoval©2012

THOUGHTS 2905 TO 2908

MY THOUGHTS 2905
TEACHING: TEACHERS ALWAYS HAVE TO CAREFUL NOT TO BE IDOLIZED BY THEIR STUDENTS OR DEVOTEES. A TRUE TEACHER SEEKS TO HELP HIS/HER STUDENTS TO GROW BEYOND THE TEACHER HIM/HERSELF. WHEN THE STUDENT NO LONGER NEEDS THE TEACHER, THE TEACHER HAS SUCCEEDED. IT IS EVEN BETTER, WHEN THE TEACHER ALSO LEARNS FROM THE ‘STUDENT’. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2906
QUESTION: CONCERNING THE YIN AND YANG OF PLEASURE AND PAIN, DO YOU TRY TO EXPERIENCE EACH SIDE FULLY OR DO YOU TRY STAY IN THE NEUTRAL ZONE OF THE YIN AND THE YANG? EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2907
REMEMBER THAT ONE’S OWN NEGATIVE PERCEPTIONS OF OTHERS IS A REFLECTION OF ONE’S OWN INNER FEELINGS THAT ONE WANTS TO COVER UP. SEEK PEACE AND LOVE FOR YOUR INNER FEELINGS. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2908
MANY SPIRITUAL ‘LEADERS’ HAVE SO MANY FOLLOWERS THAT DEPEND ON THEIR LEADERSHIP THAT THOSE LEADERS BECOME VIRTUAL PRISONERS OR SLAVES TO THEIR FOLLOWERS. ALSO THE LEADER’S ABILITY TO ENHANCE HIS/HER SPIRITUAL THINKING HAS BEEN STUNTED BY THEIR DEVOTEES DEPENDENCE ON THEM. THEY BECOME A PRISONER OF THE DOGMA CREATED BY THEIR DEVOTEES’ INSECURITIES. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO POLITICAL, SOCIAL, AND ECONOMIC LEADERS. EmilKoval©2012

THOUGHTS 2901 TO 2904

MY THOUGHTS 2901
TEACHING: THE TEACHER WHO CAN SIT DOWN AND HAVE DISCUSSIONS WITH HIS/HER STUDENTS WILL BE SUCCESSFUL IN HELPING THEM UNDERSTAND HIS KNOWLEDGE AND WISDOM. THE TEACHER WHO ONLY PROFESSES OR PREACHES HIS WISDOM AND KNOWLEDGE WILL ATTRACT BLIND FOLLOWER OR SKEPTICAL LISTENERS. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2902
SUGGESTION 028: WHEN OTHERS GIVE YOU ADVICE, JUST LISTEN RESPECTFULLY AND PONDER THEM THOUGHTFULLY. THANK THEM FOR THEIR ADVICE, AND THEN DO WHAT MAKES YOU COMFORTABLE AND FEEL GOOD. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2903
EVERYONE IS ON HIS/HER PATH TO LEARN HER/HIS LESSONS IN THIS LIFE CYCLE. THE REAL POINT OF THOSE LESSONS ON THIS LEVEL IS WHETHER YOU ARE SPIRITUALLY MOTIVATED OR MATERIALLY MOTIVATED. YOU CAN ACCUMULATE PROFITS AND BUILD THE BIGGEST MONUMENTS TO YOUR PERSONAL GLORY WHICH WILL BE DESTROYED IN TIME BY OTHER GREEDY PEOPLES, OR YOU COULD USE YOUR ECONOMIC STATUS TO HELP OTHERS ON THEIR PATHS THROUGH LIFE. LOVE AND INNER PEACE IS SHOULD BE YOUR GOAL. SEEK LITTLE AND SHARE WHAT YOU HAVE WITH OTHERS. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2904
TAKE THE TIME TO REALLY LOOK AT YOUR FAMILY, AND THEN THINK ABOUT WHAT REALLY MATTERS IN YOUR LIFE. EmilKoval©2012

THOUGHTS 2897 TO 2900

MY THOUGHTS 2897
ALWAYS FEEL GREAT AND GRATEFUL FOR WHO YOU ARE. THERE IS NO ONE ELSE ON THIS PLANET JUST LIKE YOU. GO INSIDE AND DISCOVER HOW UNIQUE YOU ARE AND WHAT GIFTS YOU HAVE TO SHARE WITH THOSE AROUND YOU. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2898
SUGGESTION 027: LIVE YOUR LIFE SIMPLY AND TO THE FULLEST. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON UNNECESSARY THINGS. SPEND IT ON THINGS OR EXPERIENCES THAT ARE BENEFICIAL TO YOU. DO NOT SPEND IT ON THINGS TO IMPRESS OTHERS. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2899
TEACHING: A TEACHER SHOULD APPROACH HIS STUDENTS AS PARTNERS IN THEIR QUEST FOR KNOWLEDGE. THAT IS, THE TEACHER OFFERS HIS WISDOM; HE DOES NOT PREACH IT. IN THIS WAY, THE STUDENTS ARE MORE WILLING TO TRULY PARTICIPATE IN THEIR QUEST FOR KNOWLEDGE. WHEN THE TEACHER CAN ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE TEACHER HAS ALSO LEARNED FROM THE STUDENTS, THE TEACHER CAN GUIDE HER/HIS STUDENTS MORE SPECIFICALLY. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2900
DO NOT TRY TO BE A SHOW-OFF BY DOING WHAT OTHERS DO TO SHOW-OFF. JUST DO THINGS THAT YOU TRULY ENJOY DOING AND WEAR THE CLOTHES THAT MAKE YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE. IF YOUR “FRIENDS” CRITICIZE YOU FOR NOT CONFORMING TO THEIR NORMS, YOU HAVE LEARNED A GREAT LESSON ABOUT FRIENDSHIP. TRUE FRIENDS ACCEPT YOU AS YOU ARE. EmilKoval©2012

THOUGHTS 2889 TO 2992

MY THOUGHTS 2889
LETTING GO OF THE CONTROL OF YOUR ADULT CHILDREN DOES NOT MEAN YOU STOP LOVING THEM. IT MEANS TO LET THEM WALK THEIR PATHS WHILE YOU WALK YOU SPIRITUAL PATH. HOW YOU WALK THAT PATH WILL BE INSPIRATIONAL TO YOUR CHILDREN AND YOUR GRANDCHILDREN. BEING SPIRITUAL IS NOT PRAYING EVERY DAY FOLLOWING DOGMA. BEING SPIRITUAL IS MAKING YOUR LIFE A COMPASSIONATE, LOVING, AND UNDERSTANDING LIFE. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2890
THE LESSONS WE ARE HERE TO LEARN THROUGH RELATIONSHIPS ARE TOUGHER TODAY BECAUSE OF THE RAPID RISE OF SELFISH AND MATERIAL VALUES. THE REWARDS OF RELATIONSHIPS ARE GREATER WHEN YOU CAN MAINTAIN A MUTUAL TRUSTING AND LOVING RELATIONSHIP. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2891
REMEMBER THAT YOUR PERSONAL DEEDS ARE THE ONLY TRUE EXPRESSIONS OF YOUR PERSONAL AND SOCIAL WORTHINESS. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2892
QUESTION: HAVE YOU GRADUATED FROM SEEKING AND DEFINING YOUR SPIRITUALITY TO TRULY LIVING YOUR SPIRITUALITY? EmilKoval©2012

THOUGHTS 2885 TO 2888

MY THOUGHTS 2885
AS A DEVOTEE OF YOUR SPIRITUAL TEACHER, YOU SHOULD EXPRESS HIS/HER WISDOM AND COMPASSION THROUGH YOUR ‘ACTIONS,’ NOT YOUR WORDS ALONE. INSTEAD OF SAYING MY TEACHER SAID ‘THIS’ AND MY TEACHER SAID ‘THAT’, YOU SHOULD DEMONSTRATE YOUR TEACHER’S TEACHINGS THROUGH YOUR PERSONAL ACTIONS WHICH ARE MUCH STRONGER THAN ANY WORDS YOU CAN SAY. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2886
QUESTION 256: DO YOU LIVE AND DEMONSTRATE YOUR TEACHER’S WISDOM AND COMPASSION, OR DO YOU JUST TALK ABOUT YOUR TEACHER’S WISDOM AND COMPASSION? EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2887
LAO TSE, THE BUDDHA, THE CHRIST, RUMI, CONFUCIUS, AND OTHER GREAT TEACHERS KEPT THEIR WISE THOUGHTS AND WORDS SIMPLE. THOSE WHO FOLLOWED AFTER THEM TRIED TO CODIFY THEIR TEACHINGS IN ORDER TO FULLY COMPREHEND THOSE TEACHING. THEY CREATED VOLUMES OF LITERATURE ON SUCH SIMPLE TRUTHS THAT EVENTUALLY GREAT RELIGIONS WERE CREATED AND EVENTUALLY BECAME FRAGMENTED BECAUSE OF DIFFERENT INTERPRETATIONS. THERE IS NO LONGER ONE BUDDHISM, ONE HINDUISM, ONE ISLAM, ONE JUDAISM, NOR ONE CHRISTIANITY. THEY HAVE DEVELOPED INTO COMPETING IDEOLOGIES WITHIN THEMSELVES AND CONTRARY TO THE TEACHINGS OF THEIR ORIGINAL TEACHERS. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 2888
FOR SPIRITUAL GROWTH, A GRADUAL DETACHMENT FROM THE CLUTTER IN YOUR LIFE IS ESSENTIAL. IT IS NATURAL, AS A PARENT, TO MAINTAIN ATTACHMENTS. HOWEVER, AS YOUR CHILDREN BECOME ADULTS, YOU WILL HAVE TO LET THEM LIVE THEIR LIVES AND YOU SHOULD SEEK YOUR OWN SPIRITUALITY. IT IS A PR0CESS THAT USUALLY HAPPENS LATER IN LIFE WHEN YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO LET GO. LETTING GO DOES NOT MEAN COMPLETE SEPARATION. YOU SHOULD KEEP YOUR MIND ON YOUR OBLIGATIONS WITHIN YOUR SPIRITUALITY. EmilKoval©2012
