If
attempting to make a significant life change, we must recognize that the larger
the change the longer it will take to see results. Many a dream is lost to lack
of patience, discipline, and consistency.

verameum:

We all have opinions from the smallest personal dilemmas to the largest scale social issues, but only a handful of our opinions are reasonably qualified. We have some personal experience and interactions with our immediate circle of relations, we may have read some social media posts, watched some documentaries, consumed news, or at best perhaps read some books or studied a specific topic, but this still represents a limited understanding on which to base our views and decisions. We should certainly form opinions from the data we have available, but also need to understand the limitations of our perspectives. We should seek to continually inform ourselves with facts and data and approach the formulation of any opinion with some degree of humility.

verameum:

One man’s hero is another man’s villain; one man’s comic is another man’s bully. Relying on the perception of others is an unsteady compass upon which to evaluate ourselves. We must develop other personal and independent measures of evaluation of self worth, rooted in the conscience.

verameum:

An inspired life is a life enjoyed and appreciated. Conversely, when we focus only on the routine and familiar, life can bore and even irritate us. We must focus on the wonder and awe that is ever present in the unknown in order to regularly fuel and incite appreciation.

verameum:

Those that have passed away exist for us as a memory, intermingled with an emotion, creating a blended emotion-persona that becomes the basis of that person’s legacy for us. We are also continually creating memories of ourselves in others, associated with an emotion that we produce in them, thereby scattering bits of our soul in every interaction, in every word, for as long as memory persists.

verameum:

A principle defect of our society is that we equate money with virtue, conclude that wealth results from intelligence, and view poverty as lacking in both. True goodness is rarely so visible.

verameum:

Be wary of praise; think of how often famous people are praised for unworthy reasons. The same phenomenon occurs for each of us in our daily lives. Folks with goodness at their core actually feel a discomfort with being praised, knowing well that it is often misguided and superficial.
