Discipline implies a certain discipline of the mind

Do you want to wake up and smell the roses?

There are two ways of looking at things and one is the most prevailing: look out there for what I don’t do, don’t have or why I am the way I am.

This manifests through criticism: they did not do, they are bad, they do not know, they stabbed me in the back, and so on.

When I look from this angle it looks like my life is maneuvered, driven by “them”, or “that”, and I do not have a say in the matter.

I am a person that since 1983 knows, found out about the fact that I am responsible for everything, and have to constantly remind myself of that in order for my life to flow with some grace; I know that when it does not, it is because I got stuck in some “they” judgments.
For instance the Education System that everybody blames constantly, in whatever shape or form, from another more empowering angle is self-made.

If I had a message for anybody in the process of learning, no matter the age, I would give them to read the message I found on Facebook yesterday.

Here is “Self-Education” to you!

“You see her? She is Romanian from Bistrita, and she graduated as chief of promotion at the Paris-Sorbonne University in France. Then she was admitted at the same University for the Master Degree. And let me tell you something else important. Before she became a Sorbonne University student, she studied in Romania, the college in county Lunca Ilvei, and high school in Bistrita.”
