Eight Ball in Any Pocket
Life today is like a rerun of the opening break in a game of pool, kind of like a version of the movie Groundhog Day. From the first thing in the morning till the lights go out at night, the balls are set up and slammed around. Where they land should be anybody’s guess.

The human being thereby becomes friendlier with himself/herself and indeed also in regard to the dealing with his/her own thoughts, feelings and emotions. If, in this kind and wise, the human being resolves his/her emotional, thoughts–based and feeling–based difficulties, then the thoughts, emotions and feelings also have no more difficulties with him/her.
Here’s where we will discuss the relationship to the:
And then there’s this:
Stets bleibe ich entspannt und gewinne dadurch Macht über mich selbst.
I always remain relaxed and thereby gain might over myself.
