This development will now be published in the series of LawLeaks.

Thus, a significant new economic activity in the taxation by the State in this case was involved the authority of Vienna. Subject to tax and duties these public events, and theatrical performances of all kinds, music performances, recitation events, circus performances, photo shows, sports demonstrations and competitions, variety ‘- and Cabaret performances and dance events were the subject of the tax. 10% of the ticket price as revelry levy was basically from these events to collect, 30% were levied on horse racing.

The Positive

“I complain about the UMstand that I am so punished (by whom or whatever), this arduous passage” to make. I wish that it were not so, relationship to do so, which I don’t deny the positive element of the moment”(which in this case is the possession of full shopping bags) and increase me into the discontent. Using the technique uses a momentum with me, and I remember that it is beautiful, that I am able to buy, I have money, so I can pay that I have feet that I can move on, I have hands to carry the shopping. If I am came on in this relationship to reality, so really feel that this is an aspect of reality, gratitude immediately warmed my heart and made me feel wonderful, blessed and happy, just as it is. I am just in an intense situation. Maybe I have conflicts with my partner, am ill or erlebe the loss of a lover and am apparently caught repeating always wishing that it would be slightly different, would not take place, or I would be absent.

It is probably so, that I defend the situation, which does not recognize reality, so refuse to get in now, and am stuck in the cycle of recurring desire to be happy, to experience the unpleasant. Then comes the point where I remember that it is a gift to feel, to perceive, to breathe; that it is a miracle to be alive. And I remember that this always applies, unabhangig of the currently existing circumstances. I will be so bewusst that my dissatisfaction is based on it, I didn’t want to have that, what makes life just me”. Which means that bewusster or also unconscious erweise will clear me, that I me just wunsche not to exist, not to be alive, and this brought immediate gratitude about the factual circumstance, to be actually alive, to have life, here to be to be able to have feelings in me. And to close the round of example, I would like to mention a proverb as last I heard once long ago and that since then accompanies me through life. “A few a few words which untarnished expressing the essence of the technology applied by me vermogen: when you’re there, to look at yourself and your shoes to complain, then look at the man who has no feet.” This describes the effect our relationship, our relationship to things admirably. I find myself in the complaint mode”, so resent about this, what I don’t have, I harvest nothing but Unzufriedenheit. I however remember, what I currently have, experience and feel that my assets, then I can about that, what I just own, delight, and I experience deep gratitude and peace.
