Important and being measured (IM 788)

The question is: Is something important because it is measured or is it measured because it is important? Are we focusing on the things because they are important or is it important to focus on the things of unknown value?    

Victory (IM 779)

The survival is possible with the victory which we can sense from our evolution. Darwinism and Lamarckism validates that we are evolving because of our victory towards something or somebody. Churchill said, “Without victory there is no survival.” The victory I’m talking about here is not related towards the biology but the present day life….

All of it comes to one point (IM 773)

And that is self awareness… Self-awareness is enlightening ourselves. Whatever we gain or lose, all the successes and failures will make no sense when we are self-aware.  All the rejections, guilt and insecurities does not exist in the face of self-awareness. Self-awareness is the end point and the beginning point of everything. And this is…

It’s not the end of the story (IM 772)
