I only have control over my thoughts, emotions, and actions. If I am bothered in life I can work to change the world around, but only have power to change myself.
If it seems that the world is an obstacle in my way, how can I remove the obstructive part from the whole?
If the obstruction is real, I can not remove it. If the obstruction is not real, I need not remove it.
The secret of life is to 'be it', not to 'seek it'.
I try to take not personally my constantly changing mind, desires, fears, memories, body, and all the senses reveal.
"I am He as you are He as you are me and we are all together"
Goo goo gajoob, indeed.
A lot of those "sages" and such weren't very nice. Just saw an ugly YouTube about PICASSO.
