— Friedensreich Hundertwasser
The only person you should be trying to be better than, is the person you were yesterday.
You do not become a good person by trying to be good, but by finding the goodness that is already within you and allowing the goodnes to emerge. But it can only emerge if something fundamental changes in your state of consciousness.
"Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics. You are all stardust. You couldn’t be here if stars hadn’t exploded. Because the elements, the carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, all the things that matter for evolution weren’t created at the beginning of time. They were created in the nuclear furnaces of stars. And the only way they could get into your body is if the stars were kind enough to explode. So forget Jesus. The stars died so you could be here today."
