“Use those talents you have. You will make it. You will give joy to the world. Take this tip from nature: The woods would be a very silent place if no birds sang except those who sang best. ”
“I think people deceive themselves about themselves, particularly as they get older. ”
If you’re white and you’re wrong, then you’re wrong; if you’re black and you’re wrong, you’re wrong. People are people. Black, blue, pink, green – God make no rules about color; only society make rules where my people suffer, and that why we must have redemption and redemption now.Bob Marley

We encounter a lot of “enemies” each day – queues, bad weather, deadlines, meetings that don’t go according to plan, traffic slowing us down when we are in a hurry, people who disagree with us, events we do not like. We instinctively try to avoid, grumble about them and turn them into enemies, with us quickly feeling like victims. This quote reminds us that a lot of our dissatisfaction is self-created, a lot of stress caused by our own minds.
When an enemy arises in your life, even though you may kill it,
another will simply arise,
because all arisings are simply a manifestation of your own state of consciousness
