Devotion and concern


Every word will be of value. Everything we human beings say is to be used.


Interpretation of the interior and exegesis of thoughts

The devotion and a real consideration of the events of a life should equip the man in the mind. Thereby it should become understandable to him what constitutes him. His own sensation receives thereby the weight of an indicator for an effect of the things. This fact means so much to the author Schneider that he tries to build his own life on it.

A state of mind cleared of inappropriate things should strengthen man in his decision-making possibilities. That is why man goes into seclusion with himself at times. He thereby reflects on something which would not be contaminated with wrong or even wrong motives. Thus he can soon exist again in a benign way, since he will be neither wrong nor perverse by himself in truth.

Speech design

Life as an act of participation

In the beginning there was the Word. Then it passed away. We could not remember it in any other way than this. We would not know the word, nor would we be its originator. Everything with us builds on what has already come into being. Everything that exists has come into being by itself.

Because everything with us is built on what has already been created, we can hardly reject it without suffering damage. So we take it for granted and comfort each other with what we have to our own. It is the remaining good. Its value would not be insignificant.

A meaning of the things shall be familiar to us. Soon we can hear it. With us it appears, as an inner picture it occurs. Its quality should be like that of a structure. There, many things become clear to us. There we see something and come thereby the things promptly on the track.

Once we suspect it, what is there, we can also hear its effect with certainty. The play of the circumstances follows fixed laws and is given. That lets conclude on some what must have been already so also at earlier times. The realizations to the nature would not be able to be changed. They persist or there have been none. There we use the opportunity for a sighting of the known to us of it.

The knowledge once received is consistent. That is why we humans believe in one, yes, the truth. It has a unique value, from it springs everything orderly. There we come to us and find ourselves because we have recognized something true. No matter how chaotic our existence may seem to other people, we still hold on to it. We serve the order of the given with it. The preservation of a basis of the own existence would not be something necessary only for us. Also others have found no other way than this one for themselves. There everything should continue as it has appeared.

Although we have not experienced the pleasure of recognition of our person throughout our lives, we will persist. Like a ball, we are pushed and kicked around at times and laughed at when we have fallen. One hurts the other, suffering violently because of it. That's when the former word comes back to us. What does it mean? - We deal with such a question. The only advice we know about it will be that we will be as smart afterwards as we were before. Whether there the creator of the whole has something left for us? - It will be easy to answer that. After all, his works are still valid. We can also participate in them.

There we look at the given, as it just occurs. What becomes clear to us thereby in the thoughts, we hear with us as something that is like a feeling. The one feels there his supposed superiority, the other recognizes their principle, which is clearly different from each other. There both are probably nevertheless doomed. The one will be it because he suffers, and the other one is it because he has inflicted a suffering. Thus also already Cain and Abel have been wiped out. But what should such old stories grieve us. After all, we have an existence for ourselves in which we know how to live. So let us tackle it! - In this way we accept what exists and let it be as it is. There it has an effect also in such a way, as it just appeared to us.


Integration of the events

Incomplete will be all the faith of the people in the good, if one would not recognize it that it can be named as right at the same time, what has been good among the people also up to now. The man educates himself by means of a preservation of the consistency of his thoughts and ideas in this being of man. So he will certainly keep the power over what is his and would not have to lose it therefore what is given to him.


Limitation of the experience value

In order to be able to practice the yoga sufficiently well as a European, one should have already experienced and realized some things about oneself before. It would not be arbitrary, what one must have already recognized for it everything of itself, in order to exist on such a way. But what this will be exactly, only every adept can determine for himself. Nobody will tell it to him. No one makes the necessary effort as well as one does. The one who does not want to recognize the consequences of his actions will go away empty-handed. From the outset it will be so, if he would not be ready to keep certain rules.

One could not count only behavioral rules to such rules. There are also orders, which are imposed on us humans. It will be necessary to find them. To get them explained also. Once we have got used to a structure of above and below, of everything and nothing, then we will have perhaps also soon the class to recognize sun and moon. The heavenly bodies would not only symbolically take a significant role for existence. Also our life reality is coined by them.

One should be ready to spend a good part of one's actual life force to meet the given things that appear and occur attentively and sincerely. In the meantime, what one can find out about oneself will be true. In doing so, one should give certain unpleasant aspects of one's existence no more, but also no less space than will be necessary to clarify and clear them up. True to the principle that everything given is in truth of a benign nature, let this be done.

The one who, according to his own approaches, approaches yoga by practicing something that others may have shown or demonstrated to him before, may want to immediately intervene in his psychophysical state and determine it. In order to create a certain equilibrium of the mood or to bring about a balancing of the currently effective forces for himself, he will perhaps be so anxious to do so, but this could probably lead to nothing. One would like to receive there perhaps even a compensation for those load kinds of the own everyday life. In the special hour, to which one rehearses the exercises, one accomplishes again considerable and would not let up nevertheless. But how is it possible to get out of one's own tension and to recover? - It will be something paradoxical, if this nevertheless succeeded. The apparent goodness of such effects must become apparent to us. Temporary successes do not last.

If a practitioner can only once well detach himself from one of his types of stress, this diffuse stress, which I now call diffuse stress, then he will probably cause another imbalance in himself and suffer again. An improvement of one's own state of mind will be achieved in this way alone only in a very difficult way. The torments will be endless, but will not lead to anything real. This should not be ignored. The thought is important.

How should one regenerate oneself as a human being in another way than by actually fulfilling one's own tasks and duties necessary for existence? - However, this would not be a popular thing. Therefore, I hardly believe that people of the Western hemisphere are able to question their supposed successes and achievements. Following a similar pattern, the Westerner remains focused on the apparent result and yet could not interpret it. Thus he forgets to think about it and from a certain moment on even urgently needs the support of analysts, in order not to have to question it himself, what he has done there. He neither knows a causal chain of actions, nor does he know how to integrate himself conclusively into such a chain. Thus, there is the danger that he will forget himself again and again.


A dream vision

The adept of yoga, like everyone else, is convinced of his achievements. He also sees his self-awareness more in the light than in the shadow. But the world also knows the night. The one who always admires the beauty of the world during the day will also experience some horror during the night, because this belongs together. The nature brings it with itself that both will be entered to a human being to regular proportions.

Let us please not overdo it by trying to operate a balance of such things. Such a one would not be able to bring forth anything alive and would not help our development in any way.

We practice devotion and meditation, maybe even some temporary postures from the field of Hatha Yoga. In the process, many a state will arise which will have a temporarily beneficial and refreshing effect on the spirit of man. We would like to try to build up a real recuperative ability of us humans, if this will be possible for us. A state of being able to regenerate through rest should strengthen and stabilize the human being. However, this has little to do with balancing.

A certain calmness can be experienced when walking, just as when sitting or lying down. Even riding a bicycle will be fun in such a way. One can quietly engage with an environment or engage in introspection. Also, one will be able to eat in a contemplative way. It is a way to learn how to approach life. Let's put an end to our aches and pains and simply approach the existence of a human being. Let's make sure that we are at peace with ourselves again.


Obstacles in everyday life

In order to attain a good posture in a calm way, one should try it to finally acknowledge the already existing posture and to stabilize oneself in it. Thus one learns it lastingly to prepare the own good. In this way, we will probably soon be able to cope with what is given to us.

A mastering of the given does some need. Yes, man should experience something around him while practicing yoga.

In order to feel the satisfaction so necessary for life, one should accept one's own good, tackle the things connected with it and perform them willingly. Then, when we have done this for a long time, some phase of rest will come to us.


Not to lose oneself in the events of everyday life in trifles, that will be necessary for a meaningful life. We can attain such a life. For this it requires a suitable approach. I have found this in a preservation of the simple goods of me.

The things are to be received by me in such a way as if they were equally significant as the apparently most important. What is there and occurs, that shall also find attention with me. A loss of simple goods will be more difficult to get over than the loss of any riches. The one does not replace the other at all.


The simple good should be preserved

The human being holds something on himself. Some goods are to be pointed out for this simply by us and named. Something can be said to them, but also something of it can be explained.

Whoever has professed something like this is simply right to do so. He wants to come to terms with his thoughts and ideas. He presents his facts in the way because what he knows of it is really suitable for it. Such a fortune possesses a honest man with certainty.

There are quite a few basic goods in existence. You will probably do something right if you make a short list of what they are. One thing of value will be the consciousness of a human being. For it one knows three states. Sleep, dream and wakefulness they are called.

Everything given to us is perceived in the light of our own consciousness. That is why one finds oneself well with these three states, so that everything remains in balance with us.


Every person is a storyteller

Every person has a story, which he knows best. It certainly carries something about it that will be unique and worth telling, since it is his own. In order to gain a foothold within the circles of one's own existence, it will be important for us to tell the story of ourselves correctly. To do this, try to recite it.

What one experiences in the process should be more than just a reflection of oneself. People listen and devote themselves to us. This is moving. In the process, we gain a real knowledge of the value of the thing that constitutes our own life.


To take note of something already known

It is expected from the human being that he knows something suitable to say. He who has lacked examples of a benign existence of himself will probably also lack suitable words. He may not be able to understand or see what conditions him and why it will be so. There he has nothing to report and remains on himself. That will be no luck, which is to be experienced by it.

Once someone has not been able to speak properly for a long time, this will hardly have improved his mind. He then treads water of necessity, because he has nothing with which he can contribute well. Basically, he is stuck in a condition from which he would actually have nothing.

Let's evaluate our life situation for a moment. What questions do we ask ourselves? How do we deal with them? - Let's deal with that. Thus we come to think about something. According to a resulting realization we consider our own good. This should enable us to know how to determine their value.

If one has found there once something, which is worthwhile to speak out for us with our fellow men, then one should also do that. It applies to me something to be energetic or to become that in certain areas finally. It delights many a person in the beautiful and successful of his fellow man with certainty.

There is a change for the better. One can communicate it, what depresses one, and one can speak of it, what delights one. Both will be something true, for which there should be a benign approach, which also really leads to something. The human being does not exclude his existence nor his being in the everyday life while he communicates.

That's where we come to the point when we say something. Once we have gone a little way along such a path, many things will happen to us that will transform our own happiness. There it becomes true. We would like to think first of what we may have been missing. This can be fulfilled now perhaps somewhat more easily by us than still before.


The history of a person is to be recognized

Every person has experienced something significant at one time or another, which may also have shaped him or her. That makes up the existence of a human being. The history of a person that belongs to it consists of a sum of things as he knows them. What happened to him once, he can speak well of it, because that has an actual value. To this he shall be allowed to refer, that such a value is given in truth. It should be a part of the dignity of a human being that he experiences the right to take himself important enough. So he finally comes clear and can achieve something for himself.

Man will also perceive it with some certainty that it is his right to speak of his existence. The goods of a man are to persist.


An intentional restriction

A man will be able to keep his own in order completely, if it is sufficiently limited by its extent. The whole, which depends on him, should be controlled by him. Only in this way he will be able to exist sufficiently with his things. After that he will strive to reach a unity of what is given to him, so that is understandable for him.

This will lead to some knowledge with the human being. Such a knowledge only needs to be transferred to the given in order to be able to use it. For this reason, Schneider has sometimes thought it over carefully, what has actually suited him well up to now and therefore can be accepted by him furthermore. He believes so firmly in the pretense of a finiteness of the things of his existence that he tries to bring about their preservation. He has therefore already begun now to conclude the own good as a thing. So he will gain something with it one day. At least that is what he hopes for.


Personal responsibility in today's world

For me, the good I want to bring about in existence is related to the question of what this good actually does or means for other people. I have been so clueless about this for a long time, but have been looking for a way out. About the real need of the people I have found out nothing, with exception of an existence of the thing as an idea of me at all. A real need for such things, which I have already created, has not existed so far with the other people. Such a one is practically not to be perceived what has shaken me at times, nevertheless, a little bit.

I really tried to fathom my own things better with the time and thus also to fathom something of it, what will be suitable for me from it. But my actual ignorance related to the need of other people has put me more and more into that state, because of which I have become an 'Art-Trash'-activist. The own art thing should be for me thereby an impulse, because of which I find again and again anew to me.

There I have separated myself from the inclemencies of a fate, as it happens to me personally, gradually more clearly and have furnished something valuable with me again. The result of it I have already called, when it was only partially realized, my base station or simply my fundus. With the duration of an existence of it I have fathomed it, in which way I am able to strengthen, to stabilize and to promote myself. Even then, if I do not recognize an actual system of an order at the society surrounding me, I accomplish nevertheless so many things with my activity as a literary man what will be good for me. That reason, as mine is, I would like to be able to show to another person once with words and pictures, thus works. But it will have to be shown first whether this is feasible at all. The last word would not be spoken in the matter yet at all. Basically my works need, perhaps because of a certain unique position of these a properly carried out clearing-up. To perform it has been a strain for me especially when I have not been listened to properly. I try to bring it to the point, what conditions me there. That is to be carried out sometime, but soon by me conclusively.

Such considerations have already led me in phases to check my works for contaminations, as they simply occur by transmission in the life of a person. Again and again anew I look there exactly what happens and examine it in detail how this is as well as what this constitutes. I want to recognize the value of my own things and try to stand before you with them. For this I need a focus on the whole. It will be it, which makes the given distinguishable, but also assignable. What is given to me, that I have not only to endure or to bring in myself, it will also be my whole part of the world, which strives for realization. Such a one is entitled to me, just as I am also entitled to a sorting of my shares in the given. Some I therefore put away and let it be, because it did not fit properly to me.

A weighting of my actual thoughts and ideas I carry out in detail during the happening in the everyday life. What has not been founded by me, that has also not fitted to me and has therefore not been a part of me. There I let go of it. I would not want to maintain something like that. A temporarily occurring dominance of some people within my existence I could not need permanently. Such a dominance I have sometimes found out to be the cause of many an experienced evil in myself.

I try to limit myself with work to a sequence of those thoughts and ideas which correspond to me. No argument I spare here, if it seems to me to be coherent. I consider every single one of them for itself, therefore it should be allowed to stand for itself. I understand the thoughts and ideas as the phenomena of a human working. They complement each other rightly so well, because that will be something possible. That should be according to the regularities of an order.

The argument is to become once the tool with which the mental substance can be plowed by me. On this ground my works shall prosper. Foreign parts and own parts grow up equally in my environment. The world belongs to nobody alone. Nobody can claim everything for himself or even regard himself as the only center of it. Nobody will be so self-sufficient that he does not want to participate in something what others own or embody for himself. That will be something good after all, as it happens to us. Let us therefore better soon enter into an exchange with our fellow men.


On the matter of truth

Go home with pleasure. Go to yourself, be at home there. To be with yourself, that would not always have to mean to be on your own. You should win some friends for your cause and yourself. Invite your friends therefore to you and show them your simple house. Send once the friends away again, so that they also achieve something, which should succeed you so well. A change of the things is of the change purpose. That take place. The riches of life are so likely to be found in abundance in those who may at times have been considered poor by others. By honesty nobody becomes rich, but nevertheless this gives to some something in luck. It represents a real value of the human existence.


Renunciation as a path

The actual renunciation would be a way, which would not lead somewhere, but which can initiate a transformation of the own habitus of a person, because it is experienced intensively by him. Renunciation would not be only a temporary renunciation of something certain, which one actually urgently needs. It would be even the renunciation at a thing, which should exist for duration. The renunciation itself would be the luck of the renouncer, if he shows a good success thereby before himself. This is his strength, because he will thus prove what he depends on and how he conquers dependence. Thus, a change in the conditions of his life will occur. Thanks to such a transformation, man urgently recognizes his real ability. Yes, it will be revealed to him as clarity, because freedom from bondage and condition is so.

If one has achieved one's goals through all kinds of mortification, one will still not experience happiness. Suppression of human needs in oneself and others is a true strength of man, but his life remains unfulfilled in this way. This is inevitable, since he denies his I, which exists through needs, clings to matter and, in spite of all freedom, lovingly enters into a single bond.

All asceticism leads to such realization, unless the person would not be consistent in its implementation. What Gautama Buddha has pointed out before, shall be touched and shown in short form in this short section.

The suppressive meditation of mortification torments and penetrates the ego of a person in such a way that one will feel headless. A person without ego, without head, without needs will be one who can hardly stay well with other people, because his headlessness becomes obvious. How should he exist there before them? - A denial of the mental coherence of a human existence will drive him deeper into the forest and even further he will withdraw until his innermost light will glow so brightly and he will be blind even in himself. Not useless, but unnecessary it should be to let such terrors come over oneself.

Therefore, it is better not to turn away from people, cling to one's needs, have a head and keep one's self well. The self will know how to thank us if we make it right.


Have a hard time

No second, third or fourth person can rightly show you the right way in life. That's what I thought about myself. I know that also to maintain. Who has not found such a way for himself yet, he should orientate himself on it once. He looks at the given, as it is there, and sets to work, as soon as he comes to prank with what he has. For this purpose he should select something suitable for him from the stock of the given things and let go of everything else faithfully. I believe that it can become something like that.

Life will have to be understood correctly as an emanation of simple circumstances. Such a thing shall be controllable. Our existence will be to be called stable only if its content could not be broken without reason. That equips us in the spirit with many a perception. There we find to us.


Heroism and yoga

Have you ever met Superman in your life? Would you like to meet him one day? Will you be happy if he tells you how to get super puff or how to move faster than lightning? - If this applies to you, then you probably have similar expectations of yourself. But whether then yoga will be a suitable discipline for you, I could not know. But I ask you to keep in mind a questioning of it, because its disciplines are sometimes laborious to achieve.

Well, what mysterious things will there be to learn in yoga? Are such talents as mind reading, levitation or telekinesis at all relevant for a human existence? What kinds of a magic will enchantingly linger once one uses it? - No matter how secretive one can be in dealing with it, it would not change what we are given. Some things are due to the permissiveness of a human imagination. There one can make a mistake with such facts, which will go mightily wrong.

I am sorry to say that I think it is right to exclude such things in oneself. If such boasts appear to us as useful, then one would possibly no longer have a grip on oneself. Probably then one's own sense of life soon slips away. What can an over-inflated lung be used for? - So it's better to refrain from over-extending ourselves.


Adhere to higher principles

In yoga, it can be so good to recognize something of your own sublime thought structures. To whom this happens, I recommend it not to let it upset you. Our oh-so-ordered doings in the moment often reveal more truth about ourselves when we have such an inner look. To cope with this would not always be easy for us. But we should also not be unfoundedly afraid of accepting life as it will really be.

Within an order of the structural parts of our actual thinking of the given we probably find our way well at times. With us some things are in the clear, a stock of it we try to secure. There we are actually also at home, where we do something. But it would not be always everything well pleasing. This existence also brings its wrong ways with itself.

One should use yoga for oneself in such a way that one can continue to cope with the given. One should not use it to put oneself into states which one would not be able to control. It should be there for what is rightly occurring, but it would not be needed for anything else.

To take something back in the everyday life, that can allow a strengthening of us. Some things should be conditioned by it, what seems to us profitable for a good health. Whoever moderates himself a little in the long run deserves such a natural praise of human existence. Health, understood as a spontaneously occurring force, should be welcome there with us. However, it would not be well to force such a one willfully. So much certainty can be endangered by it, if we will do it after all. Let's consider it that the will of a person can also be used abusively.

Let us remember again what makes us. Let's put the present moment in relation to the conditions of existence and compare it with each other, what occurs and appears there in thoughts about it. An inner image may come up for the first time. Let's just assume that such an image is also possible for us. What comes up there with us at thoughts and ideas, that will have originated from itself. So it will be true that it is given.



Then, if the quality of a person is thematized, one has to address the right. It should be already something true by itself, what we take into view to it.

So we are talking about this existence. This can mean many things. Let us please put ourselves in the right light. Let us admit to our fellow human beings that they want to say something important. But let us also hear something from ourselves.


Dependence, freedom and detachment

The designer should create something edifying, so that his creations can be used well. There he begins to perform his things. He starts with a frame of it, which will be properly recognized as the 'construct'. Everything in it should be firmly joined and connected with each other. Only known means are available to him for it. Such he can use. There something is created thanks to an actual construction of these things. The result of it shall be the true starting point of his present work. Starting from such a framework, the worker will carry out his experiments in order to create a work based on it. What can be created thereby, he has also brought about.

Such a framework will be given for Schneider's thing from now on. With the help of the 'construction kit' something can be set up by him. There a release of the design of an own good will be surely possible after all.


Stick to something

I would not be able to tell what constitutes thinking in another person. For me, in any case, it is a common circumstance that I remember my thoughts and acknowledge their occurrence for me. In this way I accept them and can at times again perceive them. The normal thinking, as it has arisen there at me, I have evaluated as something what is entered to me. Such a state of affairs appears, it becomes at least partly fair to me.


What is enlightenment supposed to be?

Can one, without having some form of inner illustration, make it understandable to another how he is to understand something like an enlightenment? Shouldn't we make it easy for ourselves and point out what is to be imagined, so that it becomes sufficiently clear? - Word and picture, sound and writing are remembered if they have appeared. Then one can orient oneself by it. For this we should write down or record something that one finally perceives it.

Well, as such a well-read person, which I am, I have already heard a few thoughts and ideas from other people about what actually constitutes enlightenment. A particularly beautiful word from my memory I would like to reproduce here now in approximate manner. It comes from the wife of a very good friend.

Enlightenment would be a subtle experience of one's own feeling, which one has when one brings about something with some success in the service of another person.

Linguistic disasters and juggleries

Plop plop, the water is wet. Yes, it is raining. Hui, hui, the wind makes cool what was wet before. It blows the water away, which makes us freeze. If the sun shines afterwards, we finally have it warm again. If it becomes too much for us, we look for a place in the shade. There we feel safe and secure from the effects of the climate on us. But if we deprive ourselves of the climate for too long, we become lazy. Then what no one really wants to see comes to light. Our face will then be shabby and pale. Taking it easy would not do us any good in the long run. We finally have to go out again and experience something. It's so great there. What one has not already experienced everything. There have even been cloudbursts at times. Splash, splash, the water is wet...


Changing circumstances

Anyone who has been striving intensively for a longer period of time to achieve his actual goal may at some point also give up and not be able to do any more than he has already done. Then he probably throws in the towel and rather fails than toil in vain even longer. What should he be able to gain from the matter if it has led to nothing?

There, evil acts on us like a maelstrom. All passion leaves us and we sink into lost darkness. Again and again we tackle it and try to free ourselves from it again.

We would like to know how to improve our existence soon. Sometimes we even acquire some goods for this purpose. But only the one who got up a second time to reach his goal will claim the sense of it.


Outside, the wind is blowing around the house. You should not be stupid. Keep going what was once young and strong. Even if the shutters rattle, it is still a house. Firmly it stands there and defies the environment. It will continue to offer you protection if you do something to preserve it. Do something for it, so that you will have enough time for yourself. The house should be a picture for you. The rattling shutters are the smaller weak points of you, which to guard you surely no difficulties gives.


Talk about life with friends

There is no weightier subject than life for a person's existence. Whoever talks about it with his friends expresses something to them. There they will have to decide. Who wants to go, he will go away. Who wants to stay, he will try to endure it and stay. Thus he faces the situation. There is something to experience for both of them.
