MEANING. VIKTOR FRANKL QUOTES

  • A human being is a deciding being.
  • Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.
  • Challenging the meaning of life is the truest expression of the state of being human.
  • Each man is questioned by life; and he can only answer to life by answering for his own life; to life he can only respond by being responsible.
  • Ever more people today have the means to live, but no meaning to live for.
  • Everyone has his own specific vocation or mission in life; everyone must carry out a concrete assignment that demands fulfillment. Therein he cannot be replaced, nor can his life be repeated, thus, everyone's task is unique as his specific opportunity to implement it.
  • Everything can be taken from a man or a woman but one thing: the last of human freedoms to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.
  • Fear may come true that which one is afraid of.
  • For the meaning of life differs from man to man, from day to day and from hour to hour. What matters, therefore, is not the meaning of life in general but rather the specific meaning of a person's life at a given moment.
  • I recommend that the Statue of Liberty be supplemented by a Statue of Responsibility on the west coast.
  • Life can be pulled by goals just as surely as it can be pushed by drives.
  • Live as if you were living a second time, and as though you had acted wrongly the first time.
  • Only to the extent that someone is living out this self transcendence of human existence, is he truly human or does he become his true self. He becomes so, not by concerning himself with his self's actualization, but by forgetting himself and giving himself, overlooking himself and focusing outward.
  • The last of human freedoms - the ability to chose one's attitude in a given set of circumstances.
  • Ultimately, man should not ask what the meaning of his life is, but rather he must recognize that it is he who is asked.
  • What is to give light must endure burning.
  • When we are no longer able to change a situation - we are challenged to change ourselves.

EMPIRE ERADICATES MAN'S SEARCH FOR MEANINGFULNESS

For too long we have been dreaming a dream from which we are now waking up: the dream that if we just improve the socioeconomic situation of people, everything will be okay, people will become happy.
The truth is that as the struggle for survival has subsided, the question has emerged: survival for what? Ever more people today have the means to live, but
no meaning to live for.

I'M DYING FOR THE SPIRIT OF EMPIRE TO DIE

I'M DYING FOR THE SPIRIT OF EMPIRE TO DIE, AND THE SPIRIT OF HUMANITY / KINDNESS / SISTERHOOD TO PREVAIL.

Yup. That's about how life is for me.

EMPIRE, THE ULTIMATE THREAT, JESUS DIED FIGHTING.

What would you do if you clearly saw something, that if not stopped, would destroy all of humanity?

Empire, the Spirit of Empire (Stuff, Superiority, Systems-Institutions (False Idols)) is that ultimate threat.

Jesus saw that ultimate threat.

Jesus could not resist fighting Empire to his death.

You?

GOD IS LIVID; FURIOUS. WE ARE OBSCENE.

I can't imagine it any other way.

God must be Livid, Furious at we 1% in the world that control 80% of the world's resources, God given resources; control them FOR OUR OWN BENEFIT.

We control Her resources so WE CAN HAVE MORE WHILE 80% of Her children:

  • We Starve
  • We Exploit
  • We Oppress
  • We Abuse
  • We Bomb
  • We Extort
  • We Neglect

WE ARE OBSCENE
