Devotion and concern
Every word will be of value. Everything that we humans say is usable.
Interpretation of the interior and exegesis of thoughts
The devotion and an actual concern of the events of a life should equip the person in the mind. It is to become understandable to him thereby, what makes him special. His own sensation gets the weight of an indicator for an effect of things. This fact means so much to the author Schneider that he tries to build his own life on it.
A state of well-being that has been adjusted for inappropriate things should strengthen the person in his or her decision-making options. That is why people go into seclusion at times. He reflects on something that would not be contaminated with wrong motives. So he can soon exist again in a benign way, since he will in truth be neither wrong nor perverse of his own accord.
Life as an act of participation
In the beginning there was the word. Then it has passed. We could not remember it any other way than this. We would not know the word, nor would we be its author. Everything with us builds on what has already been created. Everything that exists has entered of its own accord.
Because everything with us is based 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. It is the remaining good. Its value would not be insignificant.
A meaning of things should be familiar to us. There we can soon hear them. With us it appears, as an inner image it appears. Its quality should be like that of a structure. Many things become clear to us already. There we look at something and in doing so we get on the track of things in a timely manner.
If we first suspect what is there, we can certainly hear its effects. The play of circumstances follows fixed laws and is predetermined. This suggests many things that must have been the case in earlier times. The knowledge of nature would not be changeable. They continue to exist or none have existed. So we take the opportunity to see what we know about it.
The knowledge once received is consistent. That is why we humans believe in one, even in the truth. It has a unique value, from which all orderly things spring. There we come to ourselves and find ourselves, because we have acknowledged something true. It wants to influence our existence on other people, no matter how chaotic, but we hold on to it. We serve the order of the given with it. The preservation of a basis of our own existence would not only be necessary for us. Others, too, have not found any other way than this one for themselves. There everything is to continue as it has appeared.
Although we have not experienced the pleasure of being recognized as a person throughout our lives, we will continue to exist. Like a ball, we are pushed and shot around at times and laughed at when we have fallen. One hurts the other, and one suffers violently because of it. There the former word comes back to us. What does that mean? - We deal with such a question. The only advice we know will be that we will be as smart later on as we were before. Does the creator of the whole thing have something left for us? - That will be easy to answer. After all, his works are still valid. We too can participate in them.
There we look at the given, as it happens at the moment. What becomes clear to us in our thoughts in the process, we perceive in ourselves as something that is like a feeling. The one feels its alleged superiority, the other recognizes its principle, which clearly differs from each other. But probably both are doomed to perish. One will be because he suffers, and the other will be because he has caused suffering. Thus already Cain and Abel have been wiped out. But why should we grieve over such old stories. After all, we have an existence for ourselves in which we know how to live. So let's go for it! - Let us take the existing and allow it to be as it is. There it also has an effect as it has just appeared to us.
Integration of the events
Incomplete will be all the faith of humans in the good, if one would not recognize it, that it can be named at the same time as correct, which was there already good among humans. Man educates himself by preserving the consistency of his thoughts and ideas in this human existence. Thus he will certainly retain power over his own and would therefore not have to lose what is given to him.
Limitation of the experience value
In order to be able to practice Yoga sufficiently well as a European, one should already have learned and realized a lot about oneself. It would not be arbitrary, what you have to know about yourself to be able to persist on such a path. But what exactly this will be can only be determined by each adept. No one will tell it to him. Nobody makes the effort necessary for it as well as one does oneself. The one who does not want to acknowledge the consequences of his actions will go away empty-handed. This will be the case from the outset, if he would not be willing to follow certain rules.
To such rules one could not only add rules of conduct. There are also orders, which are imposed on us humans. To find them will be necessary. To get them explained also. Once we have become accustomed to a structure of above and below, of everything and nothing, we may soon have the class to recognize the sun and moon. The celestial bodies would not only symbolically play an important role for existence. Our reality of life is also shaped by them.
One should already be prepared to spend a good part of one's actual life force on attentively and sincerely encountering the given things that appear and occur there. What you can learn about yourself in the meantime will be true. One should not give certain unpleasant aspects of one's existence more or less space than will be necessary to clarify and cleanse them. True to the principle that everything given is in truth of a benign nature, one should do so.
Those who approach Yoga according to their own approaches, by practicing something that others may have shown or demonstrated to them before, may want to intervene immediately in their psychophysical condition and determine it. In order to create a certain balance in his mood or to balance the forces that are currently at work, he may be so eager to do so, but this could probably lead to nothing. One might even want to get a balance for the kinds of stress in one's own everyday life. In the special lesson, when you are rehearsing the exercises, you will again achieve a great deal and yet you would not let up. But how is it possible to fall out of one's own tension and recover? - It will be a paradox if you succeed in doing so. The apparent goodness of such effects must be revealed to us. Temporary successes do not last.
If a practitioner can first of all release himself well from one of his types of stress, this diffuse stress, which I have named here once, then he will probably cause another imbalance and suffer again. An improvement of the own condition will be so alone in a very difficult way to achieve. The tortures will be endless, but will not lead to anything real. One should not ignore this. The thought is important.
How else can one regenerate oneself as a human being but by fulfilling one's own tasks and duties which are actually necessary for existence? - However, this would not be popular. I therefore hardly believe that the people of the western hemisphere are capable of questioning their supposed successes and achievements. Following an ever similar knitting pattern, the Westerner remains oriented towards the apparent result and yet could not interpret it. Thus he forgets to think about it and from a certain moment on he even urgently needs the support of analysts so that he does not have to question what he has done. He neither knows a causal chain of actions, nor does he know how to integrate himself into one. 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 light than in shadow. But the world also knows the night. Whoever admires the beauty of the world during the day will also experience many a horror at night, because it belongs together. Nature brings with it that a person will be given both in regular proportions.
Let's not overdo it by trying to balance such things. Such a balance would not be able to bring forth anything living and would in no way promote our development.
We practice devotion and meditation, perhaps even some temporary postures from the field of Hatha Yoga. In the process, many a state will arise which will temporarily have a beneficial and refreshing effect on the mind of the person. We would like to try to build up a real recovery ability of us human beings, if this will be possible for us. A state in which one can regenerate through rest should strengthen and stabilize the person. However, this has little to do with balancing.
A certain calmness can be experienced while walking, sitting or lying down. Even cycling will be fun in this way. You can take your time to look at the surroundings or take a look inside. You will also be able to feed yourself in a contemplative way. One should work out how one is attuned to life. Let's end our ailments and simply approach the existence of a person. Let's ensure our peace with ourselves once again.
Obstacles in everyday life
In order to achieve a good posture in a calm manner, one should try to finally acknowledge the already existing posture and stabilize in it. In this way, one learns how to prepare one's own good in the long term. This will probably soon enable us to cope with what we have been given.
Coping with what is given is sometimes necessary. Yes, a person should learn something about himself while practicing Yoga.
In order to feel the contentment so necessary for life, one should accept one's own good, tackle the things connected with it and willingly perform. Then some phase of relaxation would like to come with us, if we have managed to do this for a long time.
Not to lose oneself in the events of everyday life in trivialities, that will be necessary for a meaningful life. We can achieve such a life. This requires a suitable approach. I have found this in a preservation of the simple goods of myself.
Things should be preserved by me as if they were as important as the apparently most important things. What is there and occurs, that should also find attention with me. For a loss of simple goods will be more difficult to get over than the loss of any riches is. The one does not at all replace the other.
The simple good should be preserved
The human being keeps something on himself. Some goods should simply be pointed out and named by us. Something can be said to them, but also something of them can be explained.
Anyone who has committed himself to such a thing is simply right. He wants to get along with his thoughts and ideas. He presents his facts in this way because what he knows about them is really suitable for this. An honest man possesses such a property with certainty.
Basic goods are in existence. You will probably do something right if you make a short list of them. One thing of value will be the consciousness of a human being. For it one knows three states. They are called sleep, dream and wakefulness.
Everything given to us is perceived in the light of our own consciousness. That is why we find our way 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 in itself that will be unique and worth telling, since it is his own. In order to gain a foothold within the circles of our own existence, it will be important that we reflect the story of ourselves correctly. To do this, we will try to present it.
What one experiences in this process should be more than just a reflection of oneself. People listen and dedicate themselves to us. That moves. One receives an actual knowledge of the value of the thing that makes up one's life.
To take note of something already known
People are expected to have something appropriate to say. Those who have lacked examples of a benign existence of their own will probably also lack suitable words. He may not be able to understand or see what is causing him and why this will be so. There he has nothing actual to report and remains on his own. That will be no luck, which is to be experienced thereby.
Once someone has not been able to speak properly for a long time, this will hardly have improved his mind. He then necessarily treads on the spot, because he has nothing with which he can make a good contribution. Basically he is stuck in a state from which he would actually have nothing.
Let us evaluate our life situation. What kind of questions do we ask ourselves? How do we find our way to deal with them? - This is what we deal with. This is how we come to think about something. According to a resulting insight, we look at our own good. This should enable us to determine their value.
Once you have found something that is worthwhile for us to express to our fellow men, then you should do so. It is important for me to be active or to become active in certain areas. Some people certainly enjoy the beauty and success of their fellow man.
Something is turning for the better. You can tell it about what oppresses you, and you can talk about what pleases you. Both will be something true, for which there should be a benign approach, which really leads to something. Man does not exclude neither his existence nor his being in everyday life while he communicates.
That's where we get down to business when we say something. Once one has gone such a long way, many things will happen to us that will transform one's own happiness. There it becomes true. We would like to think first of all about what we might have been missing at that moment. This can now perhaps be fulfilled by us more easily than before.
The history of a person is to be acknowledged
Every human being has once experienced something significant, which may have shaped him or her. This is what makes up a person's existence. That history of a human being which belongs to it consists of a sum of things as he knows them. What has happened to him once, he can speak well of, because it has an actual value. To this he shall be allowed to refer that such a thing is given in truth. It shall be a part of the dignity of a man that he experiences the right to take himself sufficiently important. In this way he at last gets his own way and can do something for himself.
Man will also perceive with some certainty that it is his right to speak of his existence. The goods of a human being shall continue to exist.
An intentional limitation
A man will then be able to keep his own completely in order, if it is sufficiently limited by its extent. The whole that depends on him is to be controlled by him. Only in this way alone will he be able to stand sufficiently with his things. After this he will strive to attain a unity of the things given to him, so that it is understandable to him.
This will lead to some knowledge in humans. Such a knowledge only needs to be transferred to the given in order to use it. For this reason Schneider has sometimes thought it over exactly what has actually suited him so far and can therefore be accepted by him further on. He believes so firmly in the presupposition of a finiteness of the things of his existence that he tries to effect their preservation. Therefore he has now already begun to conclude his own good as a thing. Thus he will one day gain something with it. At least that is what he hopes to gain.
Personal responsibility in today's world
For me, what I want to bring about in existence in terms of goodness is in relation to the question of what this good actually causes or means for other people. For a long time I was so clueless about this, but I was looking for a way out. About the true need of people I have not found out anything, except the existence of the thing as an idea of mine at all. A real need for such things, which I have already created, has not yet existed among other people. Such a need is practically unnoticeable, which has at times somewhat shaken me.
I have really tried to explore my own things better over time, and so I have tried to fathom some of what will be suitable for me. But my ignorance of other people's needs has put me more and more into the state that has made me an 'art-trash' activist. The own art thing should be a drive for me, because of which I find myself again and again anew.
There I gradually made myself more distinct from the rigors of a fate like the one that befell me personally, and reestablished something valuable in me. The result of this, when it was only partially realized, I already called it my base station or simply my fund. With the duration of its existence I have found out how I can strengthen, stabilize and promote myself. Even if I do not recognize an actual system of order in the society surrounding me, I still do many things in my work as a writer that will be good for me. That reason, as mine is one, I would like to be able to show to another human being with words and pictures, that is, works. But it will first have to be shown whether this is at all feasible. The last word would not yet have been spoken in the matter. Basically, my works, perhaps because of a certain unique position of these, require a proper explanation. To do this has been a strain for me, especially when people have not listened to me properly. I try to bring it to the point, which causes me there. That is to be accomplished sometime, but soon by me finally.
Such considerations have at times already led me to check my works for contamination, as they simply occur in the life of a person through transmission. Again and again I look at what is happening and examine it in detail, what it is like and what it is all about. I want to acknowledge the value of my own things and try to stand up to you with them. For this I need a focus on the whole. It will be this focus that makes the given distinguishable, but also assignable. What is given to me, I do not only have to endure alone or get into my own way, it will also be my whole part of the world, which strives for realization. I am entitled to such, just as I am also entitled to a sorting of my shares in the given. Some things I therefore put away and let it be, because it did not fit me properly.
A weighting of my actual thoughts and ideas is carried out in detail during the events of everyday life. What was not founded by me, did not fit to me and therefore was not a part of me. So I have abandoned it. I would not want to maintain something like that. I could not permanently need a temporary dominance of some people within my existence. I have sometimes identified such a dominance as the cause of many an experienced evil in myself.
I try to limit myself in my work to a sequence of thoughts and ideas that correspond to me. I do not spare any argument, if it seems to be coherent to me. I consider every single one of them for itself, so it should be allowed to stand for itself. I understand the thoughts and ideas as the phenomena of a human activity. They complement each other so well, and rightly so, because that will be something possible. This should be according to the laws of an order.
The argument shall become a tool, which can be used to work on the mental substance. On this reason my works shall flourish. Foreign parts and own parts grow equally in my environment. The world belongs to nobody alone. No one can claim it all for himself or even consider himself the only center of it. No one will be so self-sufficient that he does not want to participate in something that others possess or embody for themselves. All this will be something good after all, as it happens to us. Let us therefore better soon enter into an exchange with our fellow men.
To the cause of truth
Go home with pleasure. Go to yourself, be at home there. To be with oneself would not always mean to be on your own. You should win some friends for your cause and yourself. Invite your friends to your place and show them your simple house. Send your friends away once in a while so that they can achieve something that you want them to do so well. A change of things is the purpose of change. That takes place. The richness of life is so likely to be found in abundance among those who have sometimes been considered poor by others. Nobody gets rich through honesty, but nevertheless it brings some people some happiness. It represents a real value of human existence.
Renunciation as a way
The actual renunciation would be a path that would not lead anywhere, but that could initiate a transformation of a man's own habitus, because he would be intensively experienced by it. Renunciation would not only be a temporary renunciation of something specific, which one actually needs urgently. It would even be the renunciation of something that is supposed to last forever. Renunciation in itself would be the happiness of the renunciate if he had a good success in it before him. This is his strength, because he will thus prove on what he depends and how he overcomes dependence. Thus a change of 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, for freedom from dependence and condition is so.
If you have achieved your goals through all kinds of mortification, you will not yet experience happiness. Suppressing human needs for oneself and others is a true strength of man, but life remains unfulfilled in this way. This is imperative, since he denies his ego, which exists through needs, clings to matter, and in defiance of all freedom loves to enter into a single bond.
All asceticism leads to such knowledge, unless man would not be consistent in its implementation. What Gautama Buddha has previously pointed out shall be outlined in this section and shown in short form.
The oppressive meditation of mortification tortures and penetrates the ego of a person in such a way that one will feel headless. But a man without ego, without head, without needs, will now be one who can hardly be well with other men, because his headlessness becomes obvious. How is he to exist there before them? - A denial of the mental coherence of a human existence will drive him deeper into the forest, and he will retreat even further until his innermost light glitters so brightly, and he will even be blind in himself. It should not be useless, but unnecessary, to let such horrors come over him.
Therefore it is better not to turn away from men, cling to their needs, have a head and keep their I well. The self will thank us if we make it right.
Having it tough
No second, third or fourth person in life can rightly point out the right path for you. That is what I thought for myself. I know to say that too. Whoever has not yet found such a path for himself, orientate himself by it. He contemplates the given as it is there, and sets to work as soon as he comes to trick with what he has. For this purpose he is to select from the inventory of the given things something fitting to him and faithfully let go of everything else. I believe that it can become such a thing.
Life will be correctly understood as an emanation of simple circumstances. Such a thing should be controllable. Our existence will only be stable if its content could not be broken without reason. That equips us in spirit with some perception. There we find ourselves.
Heroism and Yoga
Have you ever met Superman in your life? Would you like to get to know him? Will you consider yourself lucky if he tells you once how to get superpuff or how to move faster than lightning? - If that's the case for you, then you probably have similar expectations of yourself. But I wouldn't know whether Yoga will be a suitable discipline for you then. But I would ask you to keep an eye on a questioning of it, because its disciplines are sometimes difficult to achieve.
Now, what mysteries will there be to learn in Yoga? Are such talents as mind reading, levitation or telekinesis even relevant for a human existence? What kinds of magic will have an enchanting effect once you use it? - No matter how mysterious you are in dealing with it, it would not change what we are given. Some things are due to the freedom of a human imagination. One can be mistaken with such facts, which will go mightily wrong.
Unfortunately, I have to tell you that I think it is right to exclude such things. If such boasts seem to us to be useful, then you would probably no longer be able to control yourself. You would probably soon lose your own sense of purpose for life as well. What will an excessively inflated lung be good for? - So let's better refrain from being overindulgent.
Adhering to higher principles
In Yoga it can be so good that you can recognize something of your own sublime thought structures. To whom this happens, I recommend not to let it upset you. Our oh-so-ordered doing in the moment often reveals a more truth about us in such an inner vision. To cope with this would not always be easy for us. But we should also not be unfoundedly afraid to accept life as it really will be.
Within an order of the structural parts of our actual consideration of the given, we probably find our way well at times. With us, many things are in the clear, and we try to secure a stock of them. That is where we are actually at home, where we do something. But it would not always be pleasant. This existence also brings its aberrations with it.
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 that one would not be able to control. It should be there for that which is rightly there, but it should not be used for anything else.
Taking something back from everyday life can allow us to strengthen ourselves. Some things should be conditioned by what seems to us to be profitable for good health. Whoever moderates himself a little in the long run deserves such natural praise of human existence. Health, understood as a spontaneously appearing force, should be welcome. However, it would not be possible to force such a force willingly. So much certainty can be endangered by it, if we will do it nevertheless. Let us consider that the will of a human being can also be abused.
Let us remember again what makes us what we are. Let us relate the present moment to the conditions of existence and compare it with each other, what thoughts about it occur and appear. An inner illustration may appear for the first time. Let us simply assume that such an illustration is also possible for us. Whatever thoughts and ideas come up in our minds will have come into being by itself. So it will be true that it exists.
Then, when the characteristic of a person is addressed, one has to address the right thing. It should be something true in itself, which we take into consideration for this purpose.
So there we are talking about this existence. That can mean many things. Let us please put ourselves in the right light. Let us admit it to our fellow men that they want to say something important. But let us also let them hear something from us.
Dependence, freedom and detachment
The designer should create something edifying so that his creations can be used well. That is when he begins to do his things. He begins with a frame of it, which will be correctly recognized as the 'construct'. Everything in it should be firmly attached and connected with each other. Only known means are at his disposal for this. Such he can use. Something is created thanks to an actual construction of these things. The result of this should be the true starting point for his present work. From such a framework the worker will carry out his experiments in order to create a work based on it. What can be created in this way, he has also brought about.
Such a framework will from now on be given for Schneider's cause. With the help of the 'construction kit' something of his can be set up. There a release of the design of an own estate will surely be possible.
Stick to something
I wouldn't be able to say what it is that makes another person think. For me, at any rate, it is an ordinary circumstance that I remember my thoughts and acknowledge their occurrence for myself. Thus I accept them and can temporarily preserve them again. The normal thinking, as it has arisen there on me, I have evaluated as something that has been given to me. Such a state of affairs appears; it does me justice, at least in part.
What should enlightenment be?
Can one, without having a certain form of inner illustration, make it understandable to another how to understand something like enlightenment? Shouldn't we just make it easy for ourselves and point out what is to be presented, so that it becomes sufficiently clear? - Word and image, sound and writing are remembered when they have appeared. Then one can orient oneself by them. For this purpose we should write down or record something so that one finally perceives it.
Well, as such a well-read person, which I am, I have already heard some thoughts and ideas of other people about what enlightenment should actually be. A particularly beautiful word from my memory I would like to reproduce here in an approximate way. It comes from the wife of a very good friend.
Enlightenment would be a subtle experience of one's own feelings, which one has when one achieves something with a certain success in the services of another person.
Language disasters and jugglery
Plitsch platsch, the water is wet. Yes, it's raining. Whoa, whoa, the wind makes cool what was wet before. It blows the water away, which makes us freeze. If the sun shines afterwards, we are finally warm again. If this becomes too much for us, we find a place in the shade. There we feel safe and secure from the effects of the climate on us. But if we miss the climate for too long, we become lazy. Then what nobody really wants to see comes to light. Scarf and pale will then be our face. Taking it easy would not do any good in the long run. So we finally have to go out again and experience something. That is so great there. What you have not already experienced. There have even been cloudbursts at times. Plitsch Platsch, the water is wet...
If you have been working hard for a longer period of time to achieve your actual goal, you might eventually become tired and could not do more than you have already done. Then he will probably throw in the towel and rather fail than continue to struggle in vain. What should he be able to get out of it, if it hasn't led to anything?
There the evil acts like an undertow on us. There all passion gives way from us and we sink into lost darkness. Again and again we approach it and try to free ourselves from it again.
We want to improve our existence soon. Sometimes we even acquire some goods for this purpose. Only the one who got up a second time to reach his goal will claim the meaning of it.
Outside, the wind blows around the house. You shouldn't be stupid. Keep in motion what was once young and strong. If the shutters clatter too, it is a house after all. It stands firm there and defies its surroundings. It will continue to offer you protection if you do something to preserve it. Make sure that you have enough time for yourself. The house should be a picture for you. The clattering shutters are the smaller weak points of you, which you will certainly have no difficulty in protecting.
Talk about life with friends
There is no topic more important than life for the existence of a human being. Whoever talks about it with his friends expresses something to them. There they will have to decide. Whoever wants to leave, will then leave. Whoever wants to stay will try to endure it and stay. Thus he faces the situation. There is something for both to experience.
