"We have to create #culture, don't watch #TV, don't read magazines, don't even listen to NPR. #Create your own roadshow. The #nexus of space and #time where you are now is the most immediate sector of your universe, and if you're worrying about #MichaelJackson or Bill Clinton or somebody else, then you are disempowered, you're giving it all away to icons, icons which are maintained by an electronic #media so that you want to dress #like X or have lips like Y. This is shit-brained, this kind of thinking. That is all cultural diversion, and what is real is you and your friends and your associations, your highs, your orgasms, your hopes, your plans, your fears. And we are told 'no', we're unimportant, we're peripheral. 'Get a degree, get a job, get a this, get a that.' And then you're a player, you don't want to even play in that game. You want to reclaim your #mind and get it out of the hands of the cultural engineers who want to turn you into a half-baked moron consuming all this trash that's being manufactured out of the bones of a dying world." #TerranceMcKenna

"When people see things as beautiful, ugliness is created.
When people see things as good, evil is created.
Being and non-being produce each other.
Difficult and easy complement each other.
Long and short define each other.
High and low oppose each other.
Fore and aft follow each other."
These are the words of an ancient Chinese philosopher Laozi and the strange thing about these words are that they are entirely derived from the symbol above in the picture.
I saw this symbol many times and I treated it as some ordinary symbol but after reading about it I realised that it is more than just a symbol and the whole Chinese community and philosophy is based on it and strictly following it. I tried to summarise it from this book here here: 👇
This ancient Chinese symbol known as "Diagram of the Supreme ultimate" shows a Character in Chinese Philosophy called Yin and Yang. The dark area shows Yin, the bright Yang and these are in continues cyclic movement. These two are actually archetypal poles of nature which were represented not only by bright and dark but also by male and female, heaven and earth, water and fire, firm and yielding, above and below.
The Chinese believe that whenever a situation develops to its extreme it is bound to turn around and becomes opposite. This basic belief has given them courage and perseverance in times of distress and has made them cautious and modest in times of success. In their view, it is better to have too little than to have too much, and better to leave things undone than to overdo because although one may not get very far this way, one is certain to go in the right direction.
Seasonal changes and the resulting phenomena of growth and decay in organic nature were thus seen by them as the clearest expression of interplay between Yin and Yang, between the cold and dark winter and the bright and hot summer. The Yang having reached its climax retreats in favour of the Yin; the Yin having reached its climax retreats in favour of the Yang. #yingyang #metaphysics #theparallels #chinesephilosophy #laotzu

"Because one believes in oneself, one doesn’t try to convince others. Because one is content with oneself, one doesn’t need others’ approval. Because one accepts oneself, the whole world accepts him or her." - I guarantee you, living your life according to this philosophy will give you so much confidence, determination and happiness. 🌞 #phililyphy #laotzu

GRATITUDE 🖤 "Muhammad said that gratitude for the abundance you’ve received is the best insurance that the abundance will continue. Buddha said that you have no cause for anything but gratitude and joy. Lao Tzu said that if you rejoice in the way things are, the whole world will belong to you. Krishna said that whatever he is offered he accepts with joy. King David spoke of giving thanks to the whole world, for everything between the heavens and the Earth. And Jesus said thank you before he performed each miracle." #rhondabyrne .

Evren doğmadan önce, şekilsiz ve mükemmel bir şey vardı. Dingin. Boş. Yalnız. Değişmeyen. Sonsuz. Ebediyen mevcut. O evrenin annesidir. Daha iyi bir isim olmadığından, adını Tao koydum.
Tüm varlıkların içinde akar, içeride ve dışarıda, ve tüm varlıkların kaynağına döner.
Tao büyüktür. Evren büyüktür. Dünya büyüktür. İnsanoğlu büyüktür. Bunlar dört büyük güçlerdir.
İnsanoğlu dünyanın peşinden gider. Dünya evrenin peşinden gider. Evren Tao'nun peşinden gider. Tao yalnızca kendi peşinden gider. LAO TZU
