"The profound will never understand the superficial. We only recognize and understand those who are our equals."
"Emotions never stop, but be willing to liberate from them to obtain a sense of peace of mind. Through reasoning your emotions and being aware of them, you can get to know what’s happening in the moment. Because emotions are like tunnels to ourselves, and if you really see into them, they persist because of your worldly attachments. So, for every emotion their is an attachment, and once you let go of attachments, emotions stop rising in the mind, giving us the full capacity to see clearly and reason things better."
"Every conduct that is rewarded is repeated. The first time a specific conduct took place, pleasure was generated from the experience, and the brain integrated the experience into neurons associated with the memory of pleasure, causing you to naturally repeat the action because it provides a certain well-being (remember all human conduct aims toward achieving previous felt happiness and staying in this state). This is why we human beings are very habitual and always seem to repeat the same patterns of behavior over and over. This way humans are able to avoid pain at all costs, enhance their well being, but this makes you closed minded and sometimes blind to new things, new places, new people. It all depends on what the individual wants to experience in his lifetime."
introskeptic, a reflection on human conduct.
"The people you meet depends on the place you go, and the place you go depends on who you are."
"Experience brings thoughts to the mind, and what meditation does is cut the experience derived through the senses in order to suppress the habit of thought. If there is no experience, thoughts will begin to fade with practice, and the result will be a peaceful mind."
"Our life is a constant search for sensations, certain stimuli to the brain, in which we get addicted if we reinforce or experience again those sensations. Some of these stimuli such as love, social attention (feeling your special/important), entertainment (yes, music) or even pleasurable food are the cause of mental adiction, so it is important to make a balance in life and not cling too much to sensations if one wants a clear stable mind. Practicing Mindfulness is the key."
"Control your vices one by one, in order in which they arose in your life. The oldest ones are always the hardest to control, but with patience, awareness and consistency they can all be eliminated."
"My mind always is creating these images of events, creating expectations of things that never will happen. To me my mind is illusory and false. Self-knowledge is important and self-control must be implemented, a discipline to the mind, like discipline to a pet, because you’re an animal just as the pet."
