Soul

Soul is energy, the life in someone, our basic element, which moves us and keeps us alive. When there is no love in a relationship, we say it is dead. When there is no business in a company we say it is dead. Whenever the basic element of something is gone, we call it dead. When our basic element is gone, we are dead. And our soul is our basic element.

Identity

Do not pretend to be older or younger than you are. Playing a role looks artificial. You appear more serious and real if you just are who you are.

Superstition

It is a collective decision to believe something that everybody has always accepted. It is tradition, it is normal, it is what everybody thinks. It was never questioned and even if someone questioned it, the doubts had to be rejected because that is simply ‘what we believe’. Always keep on questioning these things - they are the most likely to be wrong!

Vegetarian

You are what you eat. If you eat meat, you take the animal's energy into your body and thus people become more and more like animals.

Stress

Our stress is created by thinking with ego: I have to do this, I have to be good in that and I should be perfect in another thing. Actually it would be good if I was perfect in everything! Of course this creates stress! We put such high demand on ourselves and on what we should be able to do and to achieve.

Experience

Your 'inner voice' is a combination of your feelings and your experiences, a way of your subconscious mind to tell you what would be good. It is nothing divine.

Religion

Why would God want women to be worth less than men? If men can read a book that you consider holy, why would women not read it, too? Why is it a sign of impurity when they go through their cycle, the most natural process on earth which makes life possible? There is nothing wrong in believing in the good aspects of different religions. Female suppression is however one of those aspects that can happily be left behind. Gender equality and fairness is something that you don’t need a religion to teach you.

Why is a woman’s virginity or her sexual purity called her honour?

Love

God is love and love is God. The definition that you give for ‘God’ you can also give for love. God is infinite. Love too. There is no end and no limit. Love cannot be finished, it is simply impossible.

Children

The only good reason for the wish to have a child is because you have love in your heart and you want to share it with a child. You want to give a child the happiness that you feel when you are loved and when you can love someone.

Expectations

We often live for others, trying to make them happy by being how they want us to be. We want to wear a mask of what we are not. But you cannot make everyone happy! We have had this experience hundreds of times but still we do the same again and again. Be original and who you are.

Children

Let your children grow up without learning violence in video games. Teach them instead to play with each other, not against each other. Show them that a child of another nation and maybe with another language is just as valuable as they are themselves.

Feelings

Only if you make your heart soft and accessible, you will be able to feel another person’s sorrows and pain. Only then you can give love from your heart. You can help the needy!

Sex

Don’t set the moral standards for another person higher than for yourself!

Religion

Criminals and people who do wrong live in fear of the consequences of their actions. Religion gives them a good way to find forgiveness. You only need to go to the temple regularly, tell a priest about what you have on your mind, pay some money, say some prayers and you are forgiven. Then you can go out to do the next crime.

Responsibility

Dear unmarried, Indian young people: Take the decisions of your life on your own. You need to take your responsibility for your marriage, you cannot blame your parents forever for your life.
