Selfless Love

If in day to day life you lead a good life, honesty, with love, with compassion, with less selfishness, then automatically it will lead to “Nirvana”.


If the love within your mind is lost and you see other beings as enemies, then no matter how much knowledge or education or material comfort you have, only suffering and confusion will ensue. If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.


Only the development of compassion and understanding for others can bring us the tranquillity and happiness we all seek. I have found that the greatest degree of inner tranquility comes from the development of love and compassion. The more we care for the happiness of others, the greater is our own sense of well-being. Cultivating a close, warm-hearted feeling for others automatically puts the mind at ease. It is the ultimate source of success in life. When we are young and again when we are old, we depend heavily on the affection of others. Between these stages we usually feel that we can do everything without help from others and that other people´s affection is simply not important. But at this stage I think it is very important to keep deep human affection.


When you are in love, it means that the person you love is of great personal, selfish importance to you and to your life. If you were selfless, it would have to mean that you derive no personal pleasure or happiness from the company and the existence of the person you love, and that you are motivated only by self-sacrificial pity for that person’s need of you. I don’t have to point out to you that no one would be flattered by, nor would accept, a concept of that kind. Love is not self-sacrifice, but the most profound assertion of your own needs and values. It is for your own happiness that you need the person you love, and that is the greatest compliment, the greatest tribute you can pay to that person. (of course!)


But a truly compassionate attitude toward others does not change even if they behave negatively or hurt you. True love is unconditional. Genuine compassion is based not on our own projections and expectations, but rather on the rights of the other: irrespective of whether another person is a close friend or an enemy, as long as that person wishes for peace and happiness and wishes to overcome suffering, then on that basis we develop a genuine concern for his or her problems. This is genuine love.

Our friends interpret the world and ourselves to us, if we take them tenderly and truly. I cannot even imagine where I would be today were it no for that handful of friends who have given me a heart full of joy. So long as the memory of certain beloved friends lives in my heart, I shall say that life is good.

Mein “Community-Projekt” auf Bali:

Der soziale Dienst wird von der großherzigen koreanischen Dame Sunhee Oh betrieben, die ihr Leben der Gemeinschaft in den bedauernswerten Armenvierteln im Süden der Ostküste Balis gewidmet hat. Dieser soziale Dienst ist eher ein “formloser Ort” für Kinder aus den unteren Einkommensschichten, wo sie von Freiwilligen wie mir in vielen Fächern unterrichtet werden.


Da das Unterbringen der Kinder in einer Kindertagesstätte in Indonesien bisher nur als „Phantasie“ und eine exklusive Sache nur für die Familien, die es sich leisten können, betrachtet wurde, rief sie diese Tagesstätte ins Leben. So haben auch ärmere Familien, die sich solch einen Luxus nicht leisten können, die Möglichkeit, ihren Kindern eine frühzeitige Förderung und Bildung zu geben.


Die Kinder werde ich 4 Wochen lang am Nachmittag betreuen. Ich werde Ihnen beim Lernen helfen und durch sprachbasierte Spiele die Fremdsprache Englisch fördern. Die Anzahl der Kinder in dem Community-Projekt variiert zwischen 10 und 20, im Alter von 3 bis 12 Jahren – sie haben alle verschiedene kulturelle und religiöse Hintergründe. Der Hauptnutzen dieses Programmes besteht darin, die Mütter des Slums zu unterstützen, die keine Arbeit haben und ihren Kindern Vorschule oder sogar Schule nicht bezahlen können. In der Community können sie sich gegenseitig helfen und finden Zuwendung und helfende Hände.


Diese Reise hat einen besonders hohen Wert für mich und soll den entscheidenden Schritt in ein neues, freies Leben ermöglichen. Es ist an der Zeit meine Liebe frei zu lassen; um mich darum zu kümmern den Menschen Liebe, Vertrauen und Mut zu schenken und damit auch ein Stück weit meine eigene Vergangenheit zu verarbeiten. Diese zwei Monate möchte ich nutzen um einen Beitrag für die Gesellschaft zu leisten und um an mir, meiner Zukunft und meinen Lebens-Projekten zu arbeiten. Ich schätze die balinesische Kultur, die Religion und freue mich darauf ein Teil davon zu werden. Man sagt, die glücklichsten Menschen finde man in Indonesien! Von der balinesischen Philosophie möchte ich ich mich prägen lassen.

I always run away from the simplest phrases because they never contain all of the truth. To me the truth is something that cannot be told in a few words, and those who simplify the universe only reduce the expansion of its meaning. Analysis does force one to be more truthful. Already I realize certain feelings I was not aware of, like the fear of being hurt. I despise my own hypersensitiveness, which requires so much reassurance. It is certainly abnormal to crave so much to be loved and understood. Anaïs Nin, The Diary Of Anaïs Nin Volume I 1931-1934 Sonntag Apr. 20 06:15pm

All I’m interested in is love.

The very purpose of our life is HAPPINESS, which is sustained by HOPE. We have no guarantee about the future, but we exist in the hope of something better. Hope means keeping going, thinking, ‘I can do this.’ It brings inner strength, self-confidence, the ability to do what you do honestly, truthfully and transparently.
But whichever way you find happiness, it is always accompanied by love, for happiness is ultimately the love of life, the celebration of living. The mark of happiness is that you are sensitive to the world around you, that you acknowledge your dependence upon your surroundings and that you are filled with loving-kindness.
You want to take care of that which you love, and you are solicitous toward it. The person who finds happiness through love is the person who can be trusted to bring happiness to others. This is the meaning behind Lao Tzu’s aphorism, “The person who loves the world as his own body may be entrusted with the empire.”

Love is my rebellion(!)


#I focus on happy thoughts #Only happy thoughts allowed #I make love #walking in love 




“If you want to make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and make a change.”
 - Michael Jackson


It’s both - a blessing and a curse to feel everything so deeply. Although I focus on my lovely feelings and I try to avoid negative energy (lack of love and caring), I do have my weak moments every now and then where I struggle being in touch with my own happiness.


“Weltschmerz: the depression you feel when the world as it is does not line up with the world as you think it should be.” - John Green


To be possessed by negativity is like a disease and every time I suffer, I get so distracted. Seeing people that don’t practice love makes me sick and it breaks my heart. We live in an age, in an era where there is so much negativity, there is so much violence in the world, there is so much unrest and people are at war, that I wanted to promote the word love.


Love is my only rebellion.

I feel the weight of the world on my shoulders. Why is there ever this perverse cruelty in humankind, that makes us hurt most those we love best?
