You came into the world, to bring more light—your light—into the world. Burn brightly.
You are important to the world because the world does not exist without you. The world needs you to be you.
Do the things that you enjoy. Do only things that you love to do. When you tire of them or see that they’re not good for you, stop doing them. Do what you think is good. Only you know what is good for you. Do that.
Some days are hard but it really is often because you are making them hard or harder through resistance. Resistance to what is around you is the core of anger, of fear, and of hatred. Our resistance to revelation is our biggest problem.
Go with the flow. Let it be.
Meditate daily. Pray hourly. Life really is but a dream. It’s mainly your own judgments that are causing you problems. You can calm your mind and control your mind.
Your life is your revelation, the things you see and know are all your own. Everything you see and know is revelation. Cherish it as such.
If someone knocks you down, just get up and get going again.
If you knock yourself down, learn how to stop doing that.
As much as possible, live in the blue sky. Don’t let anyone make you mean. Life isn’t quite as hard when you choose to not make it harder. It can be easy.
Try this: make peace with your life.
You can create your own paradise, in which you are in control. There are lots of people who have done just that. You can be one of them, too.
This is just one day. Use every second to its fullest. Be fully engaged in every moment.
Don’t lie to yourself.
Say this with me: I am no better than anyone. This is true, and in its truth is great wisdom. You are no better than any other single human on the planet, and neither am I.
It’s okay to feel bad. But really, don’t take that feeling too seriously. It’s all small stuff.
There are not so much missed opportunities in life as there are new opportunities to incrementally grow every day, if you’re open to them. That’s the trick.
Commune with the Tao. And have communion with the Tao, which is Chinese for The Way. It’s inside you and flows in you.
get out of your own way.
