Liebe, kein blosses Gefühl …Love, not a mere sentiment

„Das Geheimnis der Anziehung ist, sich selbst zu lieben. Attraktive Menschen verurteilen weder sich selbst noch andere. Sie sind offen für Gesten der Liebe. Sie denken über Liebe nach und drücken ihre Liebe in jeder Handlung aus. Sie wissen, dass Liebe kein bloßes Gefühl ist, sondern die ultimative Wahrheit im Herzen des Universums.“
Deepak Chopra


… “The secret of attraction is to love yourself. Attractive people judge neither themselves nor others. They are open to gestures of love. They think about love, and express their love in every action. They know that love is not a mere sentiment, but the ultimate truth at the heart of the universe.”
Deepak Chopra


Habt einen guten Sonntag!

School Mask Mandates Have Lifted, but Covid Isn’t Over for Students and Teachers – The New York Times

“I really feel scared to say that we’ve turned a corner,” she said. “The things that we were struggling with, even outside of Covid, are just still there.”

In Ms. Barros’s classroom at the Tulsa School of Arts and Sciences, many students require intensive support. One boy didn’t attend a single virtual class as a sixth grader or return when the school building reopened last spring. It’s Ms. Barros’s job to keep him tethered to school.

When another student started clutching a stuffed toy shaped like an avocado, Ms. Barros didn’t press her for a reason. And when one of Ms. Barros’s top students started having panic attacks in class, she helped come up with a plan to calm her heavy breathing. Her school has noticed an uptick in thoughts of self-harm, negative self-talk and meltdowns. More students are asking to see the counselor.

Two years into the upheaval, teachers are depleted. On top of the needs in their classrooms, teachers and their unions have faced scrutiny over school shutdowns, vaccine and mask mandates and Covid safety protocols, leading to labor strife in Chicago and elsewhere.

Some teachers have begun having doubts about their ability to keep going. As three colleagues departed midyear for higher-paying jobs outside the classroom, Ms. Barros, who has taught for four years in Tulsa, found herself scrolling job listings earlier this winter. Like most, she’s sticking it out. “For a while, I was in that victim mentality of ‘woe is me,’ but I do have choices,” she said. “And I’m choosing to stay because I love this.”

But America’s schools remain fragile. As teachers catch their breath after the latest wave of Covid cases, many are teetering between cautious optimism and lingering exhaustion.

Alphabet soup for the soul vol.2- X is for X-ray-vision

Words from Walden

He wished he had some kind of X-ray vision for the human heart.

Kim Edwards-

X is for X-ray vision.

If you could choose a superpower what would it be?

How about X-ray vision, the ability to fly, super-human strength, time travel or teleportation? How about all of the above?

When we go inside and sit in the empty, dark void, shutting out the 3-D sensory world, that is exactly the time when we can work on such superpowers. Limitless possibilities in the quantum field can be manufactured in the alchemy of our mind. We can time travel, see places that we normally can’t see with our eyes open, and visualize things that no-body can.

Lucid dreaming and Astral projections are two well-documented ways to have all of these amazing superpowers become real (I have not had the pleasure of these experiences yet). If you have tried either lucid…

Has Writing Changed Your Life?

Anna's Styles

I have been writing for as long as I can remember, as a child I knew something I could do extremely well; I had the ability to tell a story, I had a way with words, I always carried a notebook and would write everything down. I could be having the worst day, and once I started writing I could forget about everything. It was just me and my words. It was my escape from reality.

I just knew that one day I would want to go public and express my thoughts and emotions with the world and here I am doing that.

Eventually, writing became this different thing for me all together.

I discovered blogging. I discovered writing online. And I discovered how to live a better life and to have an impact on others. I have also learned so many things about myself and writing has become something…
