 I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.

Filosofi



On ongelmia, joita ei tietenkään pääse edes lomamatkalla pakoon. Ne ovat edessä joka tapauksessa.
Kun elämä heittää kanveesiin, on kai turvauduttava meitä viisaampien ajatuksiin. Omat ajatukset ovat kerrassaan vain (h)ajatelmia. Melkoisen hajalla.

 Tässä tulee nyt tuhti annos filosofi, teologi Sören Kierkegaardia. Paradoksien ihmistä. Hän sanoi itse, ettei hänestä koskaan tullut uskovaista. Tuli vain "kristinuskon onneton rakastaja". Hänestä voit lukea lisää vaikka täältä.


"The most common form of dispair is not being who you are."
          - Søren Kierkegaard



 "People settle for a level of despair they can tolerate and call it happiness."
  - Søren Kierkegaard

"How did I get into the world? Why was I not asked about it and why was I not informed of the rules and regulations but just thrust into the ranks as if I had been bought by a peddling shanghaier of human beings? How did I get involved in this big enterprise called actuality? Why should I be involved? Isn't it a matter of choice? And if I am compelled to be involved, where is the manager—I have something to say about this. Is there no manager? To whom shall I make my complaint?"
  - Søren Kierkegaard


Ymmällä kuin pingviini. Eteenpäin taapertaen.



 "Above all, do not lose your desire to walk.
Everyday, I walk myself into a state of well-being & walk away from every illness. I have walked myself into my best thoughts, and I know of no thought so burdensome that one cannot walk away from it. But by sitting still, & the more one sits still, the closer one comes to feeling ill. Thus if one just keeps on walking, everything will be all right."
  - Søren Kierkegaard

"Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards."
  - Søren Kierkegaard


"The function of prayer is not to influence God,
but rather to change the nature of the one who prays."
  - Søren Kierkegaard

 "A man prayed, and at first he thought that prayer was talking. But he became more and more quiet until in the end he realized prayer is listening."
   - Søren Kierkegaard
