We live in an endless ocean of opportunities.

If there are many opportunities, it means there is freedom of choice. On the other hand it also creates uncertainty and dissatisfaction. The more opportunities are given, the greater are the chances for dissatisfaction, because one can always fulfil only one, the others remain unfulfilled. Thus quickly the question arises, what would have been, if another opportunity had been chosen. This risk of dissatisfaction is one aspect of the abundance of opportunities. - Other, more positive aspects are: you may carry out corrections, you have all freedoms, you may find your ecological niche etc.

So it is very important to keep your ability to develop, always looking for your own, individual way and to live your life. But how can you be sure of what you really want, without being influenced, without being conditioned? How can you know, what really is best for you? You are not here to live other peoples’ dream. You are here to live your dream.

The memory and vision of a really high developed civilization

When will we finally give up the manic illusion, to always fight for or gainst everything, to be better, faster, stronger, more beautiful, richer, more correct than others?
Simply be yourself, accept yourself as you are, and accept others as they are. Do not fight against life, because life is not a battle, but a chance. Do not fight against disease, because it is a message, listen to it, and you will overcome it. Never fight against other people, God created men as colourful as a flower meadow, and you are not entitled to disturb or destroy it, rather use your talents to contribute to the beauty and diversity of it, to make it grow and flower for the honour of the Lord. Do not fight against death, because when the time has come, death is your friend opening a door for you.    Dr. Jörg Berchem (alias Jay B Joyful)
   
       
   

An anthropologist proposed a game to the kids in an African community. he put a basket full of fruit near a tree and told them that whoever got there first won the sweet fruits. When he gave them the signal to run, they all took each other’s hands and ran together. Then they sat in a circle enjoying their treats. When he asked them why they chose to run in a group when they could have had more fruit individually, one child spoke up and said: “Ubuntu, how can one of us be happy if all the other ones are sad?"
(Ubuntu in the Zulu and Xhosa cultures means: "humanity", "charity", "public spirit" and is being described as "I am because we are.")
