Others II

[134] To be wise means to let the things come near, to sort them correctly and to react accordingly. One has a big knowledge fund, from which one can help oneself. And it is also not missing the pinch originality that makes the wise unmistakable and inimitable.

[135] Virtue is defined as doing the good respectively the appropriate value for this. Good is a substance term as also value. Good is what a person is to experience ideally very soon. It is thereby a teleological term. This person does not need to feel the good as such: The global scope must be correct.

[136] Before L, it is good that this person experiences now this good. The person may mature on it. We humans are to promote others to the good. That is virtuous. The virtue can be also a bash that the other person is to experience, in order to be warned of their physical force and point limits out.

[137] But that is the exception. Usually others are promoted by us, if we are virtuous. The highest human virtue is love. Thus, we must love others, if we meet them. This requires the correct attitude. It does not have to be felt love, most extensive sympathy is sufficient.

[138] How does one obtain this attitude? One practices it, until it becomes as a matter of course. One says to oneself: This person is worth of my love, solely because ze is human. And correctly virtuous, one expands this attitude on everything: the objects and the thoughts. Only who loves the world can become happy in it.

[139] I am very happy, because I found the right measure. Therefore, I can pass these thoughts on also without excitement. But you are to become also happy! In addition the correct basic conditions must be created. And this means: bad dependences to fell if possible.

[140] A good livelihood, satisfying work and joy concerning life are important for the luck. Therefore, one has not to be virtuous, but it makes still happier, because one makes others happy. A successful partnership can make also very happy. But I would like to mention not all factors.

[141] Some factors do not apply to somebody. We love also all objects, if they serve for a condemnable use, because they are not responsible for that. I say good-bye even to articles, if they have served me loyally and if they are disposable, because I love them. But so far one does not have to go.

[477] Views do not have to be consistent. I can deviate from my opposite in the opinion, without the one is right in relation to the other. About opinions, controversies can develop. An atmosphere of constructive debate is here important. It belongs to it to let the other finish and to respect as person.

[478] It is important to make understandable for the other why one has a certain view. From the controversy action alternatives are to be developed. In the interpersonal field a compromise is often the way out. It is essential to find the correct tone and to maintain a pleasant handling (feeling control).

[652] Strained strength is a form of weakness, weakness can be strength. Both is depending on the view, both has its value; a general law about their ideal relationship cannot be established. Give and take should be in a balanced relation and orient itself by L. Who gives more than ze takes will receive, who takes more than ze gives will have to give.

[653] L never overstrains one: If, one suffers from the excessive demand by oneself or others. One has not to do everything for L, but should restrict oneself to the useful one has recognised. One should listen to the opinion of others for the correction, even if one is not (always) ready to take it over. To be not dependent on others requires championship, but nobody gets along without L in the long term.

[803] L arranges it so that no life is a repetition of another one. Who wants to be like somebody else has neither discovered zis true self nor lived zis life appropriately. However, there are situations in that one wants to do a swap with anybody else. But these go by and are the exception. There are many people who have a very bad time, but this is usually people's fault and not L's.

[1156] Art of living includes to limit zis wishes and not to expand them with growing possession, so that a constantly widening spiral emerges. Although the comparison with the others may let the wishes grow and foment the envy, but who lives zis life wisely will focus on L and whose treasures. Possession creates obligations and costs time, which is invested in that what is important to L more usefully.

[1157] In the daily competition, it is important to let the fellow beings who are close to us, but also the more distant, feel our affection, which they receive, because we want to be close to them and let them have something positive. We should not suppress the appreciation of their value for others and ourselves, but pass it. We must learn to buffer and to work off efficiently the negative.

[1158] We should never offer up the skilful affirmative attitude toward others, but rather arrange it so that others feel well in our presence. Even if a certain distance due to certain characteristics cannot be bridged, so we can build trust by truthfulness, which we should not destroy by unfortunate operations, and thereby reduce the distance.
