Any action is often better than no action, especially if you have been stuck in an unhappy situation for a long time. If it is a mistake, at least you learn something, in which case it’s no longer a mistake. If you remain stuck, you learn nothing.
Accept – then act. Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Always work with it, not against it.
Pleasure is always derived from something outside you, whereas joy arises from within.
You can only lose something that you have, but you cannot lose something that you are.
Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it.
Anything that you resent and strongly react to in another is also in you.
To love is to recognize yourself in another.
Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the NOW the primary focus of your life.
Give up defining yourself – to yourself or to others. You won’t die. You will come to life. And don’t be concerned with how others define you. When they define you, they are limiting themselves, so it’s their problem.
Whenever you interact with people, don’t be there primarily as a function or a role, but as the field of conscious Presence. You can only lose something that you have, but you cannot lose something that you are.
The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it.
The past has no power over the present moment.
