Our thoughts are not pure, but a mixture

Sexton explains that we are all made up of mind, an energy out of which everything is made, a kind of divine principle [Gavin Sexton: Bin ich gut genug? – Selbstwertgefühl stärken mit der Inside-Out Methode. Berlin: Avocado Verlag, 2022, p. 113]. Actually, this is well-known from Hegel who said that mind/spirit is God, andContinue reading “Our thoughts are not pure, but a mixture”

Bad thoughts (might) lead to bad behavior

As I often pointed out, Buddhism teaches us that thoughts are often accompanied with feelings, our thoughts trigger a feeling. And out of the mixture of thoughts and feelings we react, and sometimes even overreact. Interestingly, Gavin Sexton deduces this pattern, because often we are not aware about our behavior pattern, we only look atContinue reading “Bad thoughts (might) lead to bad behavior”

[Poem] Timo Schmitz: “Nothing but you” (2013)

Your cheeks are so red, Your skin so hot, But still you fake your feeling. So dark, so motionless, So scary – your eyes, But still you fake your feeling. So bright your smile, So nice to see it, But still you fake your feeling. Written in: May 2013. Adopted from: Schmitz, Timo. For betterContinue reading “[Poem] Timo Schmitz: “Nothing but you” (2013)”

Timo Schmitz: “10 minutes before my confession” (2013)

Also if I am close to you, I’m still far away from you, As closer I come, as less I understand, If you are the angel, to be sent. At least you don’t show, At least you don’t throw, The dark curtain around, But what I search in you just can’t be found. I don’tContinue reading “Timo Schmitz: “10 minutes before my confession” (2013)”

Timo Schmitz: “Something old – Something new” (2013)

I saw you before, was interested in you, but uncertain, You might be shy, want to hide behind a curtain, Not knowing before, now could I be sure? The first time, you were delightful, Now you still are like that, still so smooth, But still we are living under two different roofs. If I knewContinue reading “Timo Schmitz: “Something old – Something new” (2013)”

Timo Schmitz: “Winter feelings” (2013)

December, cold and white, Snow crystals shining bright, The happiness in the people’s face, The sorrow fell in disgrace. The lights in the streets are greeting me, A warm place – there I just want to be, And if you dare to follow me, My winter feelings – you will see. Written in: December 2012Continue reading “Timo Schmitz: “Winter feelings” (2013)”

Timo Schmitz: “You forgot me, but I can’t forget you” (2013)

A sense of love, but emptiness in heart, A desire that feels like fire, and in the heart there’s a dart. But the lonliness rushing through the dark, And in the corner sleeps a spark. But when I think back, it comes so near, This feeling it is still here, Inside, a painful feeling, MyContinue reading “Timo Schmitz: “You forgot me, but I can’t forget you” (2013)”

Timo Schmitz: “Two weeks” (2013)

So much time we have spent together, and it is you about who I care, All these moments, all my thoughts and feelings, everything, I share, And yet we still have our own lives and plans, And every moment with you, as sweet as the flans. And so, for two weeks, you gonna go theContinue reading “Timo Schmitz: “Two weeks” (2013)”

Timo Schmitz: “Orange Sky in July” (2013)

A red rose in my hand, In July’s warm care, Would be a dream – no more sad, If July just dared. A white innocent one, So much things I can’t tell, Nothing you have done, Nothing you did well. Just a black dress, you wore, And you are so far away, Just that tasteContinue reading “Timo Schmitz: “Orange Sky in July” (2013)”
