Here is a typical example of #Opitz' poetry (and of Baroque #poetry in general), written in the midst of the #ThirtyYearsWar.The poem's topic is #tedium caused by overstudy (which appears in #Goethe's Faust, too), combined with all the three main #Baroque 𝘵𝘰𝘱𝘰𝘪:
..
..
1. 𝘷𝘢𝘯𝘪𝘵𝘢𝘴,
2. 𝘤𝘢𝘳𝘱𝘦 𝘥𝘪𝘦𝘮,
3. 𝘮𝘦𝘮𝘦𝘯𝘵𝘰 𝘮𝘰𝘳𝘪.

The poem:

"
Ode

Ich empfinde fast ein Grawen
Daß ich / Plato / für vnd für
Bin gesessen über dir;
Es ist Zeit hinauß zu schawen /

..
Vnd sich bey den frischen Quellen
In dem grünen zu ergehn /
Wo die schönen Blumen stehn /
Vnd die Fischer Netze stellen.

Worzu dienet das studieren
Als zu lauter Vngemach?
Vnter dessen laufft die Bach
Vnsers Lebens das wir führen /

#Effort & #Understanding

There is no meaningful effort without an understanding
There is no understanding without a #meaningful effort
We #achieve meaningful effort only by #failing and #trying again
#Effort teaches you to be #practical

#Understanding will bring #trust and #patience
#Understanding is needed to examine WHY and WHAT

#Effort is needed to achieve WHAT by doing HOW in accordance with WHY

#Faith happens only when the #duality has fallen; it is not a #belief against #doubt.

When belief and doubts both have disappeared, then something happens which is faith, which is #trust.
When desiring disappears there is trust!

#Trust means moving with #life without any #expectations, #desires, demands of your own. Not #asking, not #complaining. Whatsoever happens, #accepting it with deepest #gratitude and #awareness.
Simply seeing the #reality, that the #opposite is implied everywhere, #trust happens.

It is not in any #helplessness that you #accept. It is simply the nature of #life that the opposite is implied.

Looking at the #fact, #truth, deep inside you, gives you trust..

In #NewYork a woman can now have an #abortion at any anytime in her #pregnancy. Up to the 9th months

What's next? A law saying you can off you kid after birth

They do it to #babies that come out alive at abortion clinics

These people are pure evil! This pisses me off so much⬇
I want to make a video about abortion on my #YouTube channel but I can't get through finding clips without my eye's watering up. It breaks my heart. I'm a very strong man. I don't cry.

I have a soft spot for #kids. Them being hurt or #murdered eats at me. They are helpless.⬇
We have to stop the #DeepState. Abortion and #ChildTrafficking has to be stopped! This shit can't keep happening.

That is the main reason I'm in this fight. We have to fight for the #children because they can't #fight for themselves. It's on us to #protect them.⬇

Don’t #accumulate anything whatever: #power, #money, #prestige, #virtue, #knowledge, even the so-called #spiritual experiences. Don’t accumulate.

It doesn’t mean become a #beggar or #renounce the world. Be in the #world, but don’t be of the world.
If you don’t accumulate you are ready to #die any moment because you have nothing to #lose. The #mediation is living #death.

Don’t accumulate inside, be poor in #spirit. Never #possess anything and then you are ready to #die.
The more you #possess, the more you are afraid to lose. If you don’t possess anything, if your #purity, if your #spirit is uncontaminated by anything, if you are simply there #alone, you can disappear any moment; whenever #death knocks on the door it will find you ready.

I just gotta say this, and it might take a while and I am probably gonna cry...

I get into a lot of discussions with people who have no idea the state of world we were actually in leading up to @realDonaldTrump, nor where it was going to end up. Thank you God!!!
The #AmericanPeople have been forced into basic slave labor. Unions took over personal #freedoms in the work place, making it impossible to do anything without the #mob without risk of getting fired. #Unions also allowed people that did nothing to keep their #jobs
without recourse. #Goverment stepped in and made it necessary to have a #supervisor, #assistantsupervisor, #manager, #directingmanager, they gave quotas on #race and #gender that had to be met. They all but destroyed #business in #America

#Surrender doesn’t depend on the object, it is a quality that you bring into your #being. To whom you surrender is irrelevant.

Any object will do. You can surrender to a tree, you can surrender to a river, you can surrender to anything, your wife, your husband, your guru.
Even through stones, people have attained because it is not a question at all to what you #surrender.

You surrender, and that brings the whole thing, that opens the door. Surrendering, the effort to surrender brings an opening to you.
If you are open to stone, you become open to the whole existence, because it is only a question of opening. How can you be open to a stone, and not open to a tree?

#Understanding is the only objective #rule.

#Observe and #Learn from other #people, make your own rules for your subjective #life. But never #impose your rules on others because ii will be a indirect #violence.
The person who follows #rules everywhere, he will be a #misfit.

He becomes like frozen ice.

#Rules creates #superficial #boundary.
#Rules can #change your #actions, your #behaviour to certain extent but it won't change you.

You are not you actions , you are not your behaviour. These are just on #periphery. You are much #deeper, the #centre. The changes in the periphery can't #bring change in the centre.

The #mind is always ready to go on a trip because it is only in trips that it feels alive. #Meditation simply means sitting silently, doing nothing, not even #thinking and the mind disappears. Because you are not on any trip, the mind is no longer needed.
The #mind is a guide for great journeys. If you are going somewhere, the mind is very happy; in your going somewhere the mind can feel enhanced. But if you are not going anywhere, just sitting #silently, doing nothing, the mind feels very #sad.
It will happen almost always to meditators that when the mind feels sad, it starts creating #boredom for you; that is a strategy of the mind. The mind is saying, "Come on! Let us go somewhere, let us do something. Why are you sitting? Just sitting doing nothing brings boredom!"

If your #body becomes very pleasant we call it a #pleasure

If your #mind becomes pleasant, we call it peace; if it becomes very pleasant we call it a #joy

If your #emotions become pleasant we call it a #love; if they become very pleasant we call it #compassion
If your life #energies become pleasant we call it #bliss, and if they become very pleasant we call it #ecstasy

If your surroundings become pleasant, you call it #success
A #seeker on the path of #awareness knows that #Pleasure, #Peace, #Joy, #Love, #Compassion, #Bliss and #Ecstasy are all different states of #Body, #Mind and #Energy, not the achievement milestones you can #conquer in an external world.

Every so often I find it fun to try and re-articulate my worldview from scratch, often in the hope that there will be some new or interesting bit to it
1. We are cluelessly born into the middle of a bustling, chaotic story. We are tiny ants on a leaf on a branch on a tree, and everyone around us certainly seems to be in a great hurry
2. We start out as extremely local beings, embedded in our families, our peers, our communities. We inherit their beliefs, their aspirations, their traumas, their flags - most of which they inherited in turn. As children we are onboarded into their rituals and superstitions

Hello, I am Edna Matta. I was born in #Ibague, known as #Colombia’s #CityofMusic. A beautiful place near snow-covered volcanos (Ruiz, Santa Isabel and Tolima), large expanses of paramo forest, lakes and streams where a diverse array of animal and plant species coexist

#Intelligence is a response to a new situation, not out of your past memories but from your present awareness, this very moment.

Intelligence is a spontaneous #responsibility. It has been misunderstood. It has become almost equivalent to #duty. The #reality is different.
There has been a perennial conflict between #intelligence and #intellect.

The man of intellect thinks that he is #intelligent because he knows so much. He has accumulated a great heritage of #knowledge, he is burdened with all kinds of #information.
The man of #intelligence is innocent; he functions moment to moment, his functioning has a freshness and a beauty. But to find intelligence one has to go beyond the mind. #Meditation is the way.

In #reality there is no such things like Great Team, Great Organization, Great Nations. They only exist in our mind, it is only a consequence.

Only Great #Individuals exists and when they come together, #Team, #Organization and #Nation happen which are extraordinary.
All your efforts to change the consequences (Team, Organization, Nation) directly will be arduous and over exaggerated and in the end it will bring misery to all individuals who participated in the journey
All efforts must go be invested in #Individuals

There are only two ways in which investment will be fruitful
1. Invest in Individual's uniqueness and skills
2. Invest in Individual's consciousness

LIFE HAPPENS | “Sho, do you cook?”, my date asked. I replied jauntily, “I used to but not anymore. I now have access to a chef and can afford to order what I like eating.” #Thread #Life #Relationships
My date followed up by asking, “If your boyfriend asked you to cook for him, would you?” I grinned, as I realised my date was sadly playing from a script. I replied, “I don’t have a guy I like who’s asking me to cook, so I can’t say.”
I think my date thought I was being coy. But, I wasn’t. I was just being honest. A while ago, I decided to deal in reality and not hypotheticals. I have tried and failed to control life. All my effort got me was an anxiety problem and therapy.

#IBelieve..

This is #TooGoodNotToShare..

We spend the best years of our lives waiting for a #Miracle when the miracle is #Life itself

We wait for approval,we wait for promotion,we wait for the bonus,we wait for freedom,we wait for a revelation AND in all this,we forget to live
Today, I make this promise to myself. No more waiting. I will live each day like it was the last day of my life. And I will live each day like it is the first day of the rest of my life with no regrets of the day that was..
I will be #Courageous.
Not courageous like a #Soldier under fire, but courageous enough to not wait. Courageous enough to #Live every moment to the hilt.

#Courageous enough to know that the only losses I should fear are the loss of #Love and #Respect, for myself & for those around me.

It is generally around these festival days I miss my hometown very much -ಜನವರಿಯ ಜಾತ್ರೆ. ನೆಹರೂ ಬಟರ್ ಸ್ಟೋರ್. ಮಂಗಳವಾರ ಸಂತೆ. ಚಳಿಗಾಲದ ಕಾವಳ. ಅದರ ಜೊತೆಗೆ ಸೊಗಡಿನ ಅವರೇಕಾಯಿ.ರಾತ್ರಿ ಓಡಾಡುವಾಗ ಜೀವವೇ ಬಾಯಿಗೆ ಬರುವಂತೆ ಬೊಗಳುವ ಬೀದಿ ನಾಯಿಗಳು. ಸುಧಾ ಹೋಟೆಲ್ಲಿನ ಮಸಾಲೆ ದೋಸೆ. ಕಟ್ಟಿನ ಕೆರೆಯ ಬಸ್ ಸ್ಟಾಂಡ್. (1/n)
ಜಾತ್ರೆ ಮಾಳಕ್ಕೆ ಹೋಗುವ ಅಲಂಕಾರ ಮಾಡಿರುವ ರಾಸುಗಳು. ಪಿಕ್ಚರ್ ಪ್ಯಾಲೇಸ್ ಮುಂದೆ ಚೌಕಾಸಿ ವ್ಯಾಪಾರ. ಗಂಧದ ಕೋಟಿ. ಸಂಪಿಗೆ ರಸ್ತೆ. ವರುಷದಲ್ಲಿ ಒಮ್ಮೆ ಮಾತ್ರ ಹತ್ತು ದಿನ ತೆಗೆಯುವ ಊರ ದೇವತೆಯ ಗುಡಿ. ಮೂರು ತಿಂಗಳ ಸೋನೆ ಮಳೆ. ಗಣಪತಿ ಪೆಂಡಾಲಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಕದ್ರಿ ಗೋಪಾಲನಾಥ್ ಸ್ಯಾಕ್ಸಫೋನ್ ಕಚೇರಿ. ಡಬಲ್ ಟ್ಯಾಂಕ್ ಬಳಿ ಆಡುವ ಹುಡುಗರು. (2/n)
ಆಂಜನೇಯನ ದೇವಸ್ಥಾನದಲ್ಲಿ ಸಂಸ್ಕೃತ ಶಾಲೆ. ವರ್ಷಗಟ್ಟಲೆ ಟಾರು ಕಾಣದೇ ಮಳೆಗಾಲದಲ್ಲಿ ಕೆಸರಿನ ಓಟಕ್ಕೆ ಲಾಯಕ್ಕಾದ ರಸ್ತೆಗಳು. ಪಾರ್ಕಿನ ನಡುವೆ ಯಾರೂ ನೋಡಲು ಬರದ ಮ್ಯೂಸಿಯಂ ನಲ್ಲಿ ಸುಂದರ ಶಿಲ್ಪಗಳು. ಮಂಗಳೂರು ಪಾತ್ರೆ ಅಂಗಡಿಯ ಮುಂದೆ ಹೊಳೆಯುವ ತಾಮ್ರದ ಕೊಡಗಳು. ಹಳದೀ ಬಣ್ಣದ ನದೀ ದೇವತೆಯ ಕೈಯಲ್ಲಿ ಒಣಗಿನಿಂತ ನೀರಿನ ಕೊಡ. (3/n)

"God, I want my future back." Those were the words I whispered to God two weeks ago, while I was going through the greatest health scare of my life. #Thread #Health #Life
In the midst of the tests and various medical consultations, it occurred to me that my life had stopped. My symptoms limited my movements and where I could go. So, I couldn't plan and I couldn't project forward.
Things like traveling or dating went out of the window. I was stuck on finding a solution to my health challenge. My tests are still ongoing. I'm still seeing doctors, but we think we now know what's wrong. And so, I am hopeful.

An interesting story as shared by a friend @soodparivar. Found it #TooGoodNotToShare ...

The #CockroachTheory for #SelfDevelopment

At a restaurant, a cockroach suddenly flew from somewhere and sat on a lady.

She started screaming out of fear.
With a #panic stricken face and trembling voice, she started screaming and jumping, with both her hands desperately trying to get rid of the cockroach

Her reaction was contagious as everyone else in her group also started to panic
The lady finally managed to push the cockroach away but it landed on another lady in the group and it was the turn of the other lady in the group to continue the drama

The waiter rushed forward to their rescue

In the relay of throwing, the cockroach next fell upon the waiter
