THOUGHTS 3149 TO 3152

MY THOUGHTS 3149
IT IS GOOD TO SEEK ADVICE AND HELP FROM OTHERS. HOWEVER, IF WE USE THAT ADVICE AND HELP TO THINK FOR OURSELVES, WE CAN TRULY ACHIEVE SOME FORM OF SUCCESS AND PUT OURSELVES ON THE PATH TO OUR PERSONAL ENLIGHTENMENT. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 3150
WE CAN LEARN MUCH FROM MANY GOOD TEACHERS. HOWEVER, WE MUST HAVE A CLEAR UNDERSTANDING WITHIN ‘OUR’ MINDS AS TO WHO WE REALLY ARE. THE TEACHER IS OUR GUIDE WHO SHOWS US HOW HE/SHE FOUND HIS WAY. WE ARE TO LEARN AND GROW BEYOND OUR TEACHERS. WE SHOULD BECOME ENLIGHTENED DEVOTEES, NOT BLIND FOLLOWERS. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 3151
QUESTION 313: WHY DO PARENTS PUNISH THEIR CHILDREN BY INVOLVING THEM IN THEIR PERSONAL PROBLEMS? WHY DO SOME PARENTS FORCE THEIR CHILDREN TO TAKE SIDES IN SPOUSAL DISPUTES? EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 3152
THE UNDERSTANDING OR TRANSLATION OF YOUR TEACHERS WORDS OR THE DOGMA OF YOUR PHILOSOPHY OR FAITH IS BASED ON ‘YOUR’ LEVEL OF UNDERSTANDING. WITH EACH HIGHER LEVEL OF’ YOUR’ UNDERSTANDING AND EXPERIENCE IN LIFE, YOU WILL HAVE NEW TRANSLATIONS OF THOSE SAME WORDS. BE OPEN TO POSITIVE GROWTH. EmilKoval©2012

THOUGHTS 3145 TP 3148

MY THOUGHTS 3145
YOU ARE BORN INTO IMPERFECT SOCIETIES AS IMPERFECT BEINGS. SEEK YOUR PERFECTION THROUGH THE LESSONS YOU ARE HERE TO LEARN. LEARN YOUR TRUTH WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF YOUR WORLD. DO NOT JUDGE OTHERS. JUDGE YOUR REACTIONS TO OTHERS. GROW BEYOND YOUR IMPERFECTIONS BY WORKING THROUGH THE IMPERFECT WORLD AROUND. LEARN THE LESSONS YOU NEED TO LEARN FOR YOUR SPIRITUAL GROWTH. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 3146
QUESTION 310: EXISTENCE IS THE STRUGGLE FOR MATERIAL GAIN OR SPIRITUAL ADVANCEMENT OR A COMBINATION OF BOTH. BOTH HAVE MANY PITFALLS THAT CAN BE VERY DEVASTATING TO ONE’S BEING. IS IT AT ALL POSSIBLE TO SEEK NON-EXISTENCE SO THAT ALL STRUGGLES AND CYCLES NO LONGER EXIST? EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 3147
QUESTION 311: WHEN YOU ARE IN A COMPETITION, DO YOU PRAY TO GOD TO WIN, OR DO YOU PRAY TO GOD TO DO YOUR BEST? WHICH DO YOU THINK IS THE BETTER KARMIC CHOICE? EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 3148
QUESTION 312: HOW DO YOU VIEW MISTAKES? DO YOU VIEW MISTAKES AS A FAILURE, OR DO YOU VIEW MISTAKES AS OPPORTUNITIES TO LEARN? WHICH DO YOU THINK IS THE BETTER KARMIC CHOICE? EmilKoval©2012

THOUGHTS 3141 T0 3144

MY THOUGHTS 3141
MEMORIAL DAY IN ALL SOCIETIES SHOULD BE A TOOL TO TEACH THE FUTILITY OF SEEKING REVENGE FOR PAST HURTS AND TRANSGRESSIONS, AS WELL AS, A REMINDER OF THE SACRIFICES MADE BY ALL SOCIETIES’ MEMBERS TO PROTECT THEIR INDIVIDUAL ‘GROUP’. ALL SOCIETIES SHOULD REFLECT ON THE COST OF ANY WAR PHYSICALLY, ECONOMICALLY, PSYCHOLOGICALLY, AND SOCIALLY ON THEIR OWN PEOPLES AND ON OTHER PEOPLES. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 3142
MEMORIAL DAY IS A REMINDER THAT ‘TRIBAL’/CULTURAL CONFLICTS WITH EACH OTHER IS BECAUSE THEY ARE AFRAID TO SHARE THEIR UNIQUELY LEARNED SKILLS AND BELIEVE THAT THEIR DOMINANCE IS ESSENTIAL TO THEIR SURVIVAL. EACH CULTURAL GROUP SHOULD EXCHANGE THAT GROUP’S UNIQUE SKILLS WITH OTHERS WHILE BEING WILLING TO LEARN FROM OTHER GROUPS. THE KEY WORD IS ‘SHARING’, NOT DOMINATING, WHILE MAINTAIN THE GROUPS IDENTITY. ANOTHER KEY WORD IS ‘RESPECTING’, NOT MOCKING, THE DIFFERENCES IN THEIR CULTURES AND THE COMMONALITIES OF EACH CULTURE. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 3143
WHEN SOMEONE ASKS YOU FOR ADVICE, YOU SHOULD TELL THEM THAT THIS IS WHAT ‘YOU’ KNOW BASED ON ‘YOUR’ PATH AND ‘YOUR’ LESSONS AND THAT HE/SHE MAY TRY IT TO SEE IF IT WORKS FOR HIM/HER. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 3144
LIVE LIFE AS IT COMES TO YOU. ACCEPT AND UNDERSTAND ITS MANY LESSONS THROUGH ITS VARIOUS ASPECTS. WHENEVER POSSIBLE SHARE YOUR EXPERIENCES WITH THOSE WHO ASK ABOUT THEM. EmilKoval©2012

THOUGHTS 3137 TO 3140

MY THOUGHTS 3137
MEMORIAL DAY: ON MEMORIAL DAY, CHECK IN ON THE FAMILIES OF THOSE WHO HAVE LOST MEMBERS OF THEIR FAMILY IN THE SERVICE OF HIS/HER COUNTRY AND INVITE THE MEMBERS OF THAT FAMILY TO YOUR MEMORIAL DAY FEAST AND SHARE YOUR COMPASSION WITH THEM. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 3138
MEMORIAL DAY: THERE ARE MANY HOMELESS VETERANS WHO ARE DEAD TO SOCIETY AS A WHOLE. BUY OR BRING THEM A MEAL AND SHARE IT WITH THEM. IF YOU HAVE TIME TO LISTEN TO THEIR STORIES, IT WOULD BE A WONDERFUL AND COMPASSIONATE GIFT THAT YOU CAN GIVE THEM. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 3139
MEMORIAL DAY: ON MEMORIAL DAY, GATHER OR BUY SOME FLOWERS AND THEN GO TO A MILITARY MEMORIAL PARK AND PLACE SOME FLOWERS ON THE GRAVES THAT HAVE BEEN NEGLECTED FOR A WHILE. YOU CAN ALSO SHARE YOUR COMPASSION WITH THOSE WHO ARE HAVING DIFFICULTIES AT THE GRAVE SITES OF LOVED ONES. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 3140
MEMORIAL DAY: WE SEEM TO GREAT AND PRAISE MILITARY PERSONNEL WHO COME HOME PHYSICALLY WHOLE. HOWEVER, WE SEEM TO IGNORE THOSE WHO HAVE RETURNED TO ISOLATION IN HOSPITALS, INSTITUTIONS, AND HOMELESS IN THE STREETS. MAKE AN EFFORT TO SHARE YOUR COMPASSION AND UNDERSTANDING WITH THEM. EmilKoval©2012

THOUGHTS 3133 TO 3136

MY THOUGHTS 3133
PARENTS AND GRANDPARENTS, YOU MUST ALLOW YOUR CHILDREN AND GRAND CHILDREN TO MAKE THEIR OWN DECISIONS SO THAT THEY CAN FOLLOW THEIR CHOSEN PATHS IN LIFE. WHEN YOU ALLOW THEM TO GROW ON THEIR OWN AND ALLOW THEM TO MAKE MISTAKES AND TO CORRECT THEIR OWN MISTAKES, YOU HAVE COMPLETED YOUR ROLE AS A PARENT OR GRANDPARENT. YOU TAKE ON THE NEXT ROLE AS AN OBSERVER AND ADVISOR GIVING UP THE ROLE OF CONTROLLER. BE CLOSE ENOUGH TO HELP THEM WHEN NEEDED AND DISTANT ENOUGH TO LET THEM GROW ON THEIR OWN. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 3134
PARENTS ARE THE VEHICLE FOR THEIR CHILDREN TO COME INTO THIS WORLD. THE PRIMARY DUTY OF PARENTS IS TO PREPARE THEIR CHILDREN TO SURVIVE IN SOCIETY WITHOUT THE PARENTS, AS WELL AS, TO TEACH THEIR CHILDREN HOW TO THINK FOR THEMSELVES AND HOW TO MAKE IMPORTANT DECISIONS BASED ON GOOD JUDGEMENT. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 3135
MEMORIAL DAY: MEMORIAL DAY IS AN AMERICAN HOLIDAY TO GIVE THANKS TO THOSE WHOM HAVE GIVEN THEIR LIVES TO DEFEND THEIR COUNTRY. EVERY PERSON SHOULD HONOR THOSE WHO HAVE GIVEN THEIR LIVES FOR THE DEFENSE OF THEIR COUNTRIES. ALSO REMEMBER THAT THERE ARE THOSE WHO ARE PHYSICALLY LIVING BUT ARE EMOTIONALLY AND SPIRITUALLY DEAD IN DEFENSE OF THEIR COUNTRY. IF WE TRULY CONTEMPLATE THE EFFECTS OF WAR, MAYBE WE CAN LIMIT OR END ALL FUTURE WARS. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 3136
MEMORIAL DAY: SPEND AT LEAST A FEW MOMENTS OF YOUR MEMORIAL DAY REFLECTING ON THOSE WHO HAVE SACRIFICED THEIR LIVES SO THAT YOU CAN MAINTAIN YOUR WAY OF LIFE. ALSO, REMEMBER THAT THERE ARE THOSE IN HOSPITALS AND INSTITUTIONS WHO HAVE SACRIFICED THEIR MENTAL HEALTH AND THEIR PHYSICAL MOBILITY TO PROTECT YOUR WAY OF LIFE. EmilKoval©2012
