The Outside World

“Our wants and desires are so seductive…They masquerade as ‘needs’ that must be satisfied so we can be happy at last…If you do not hassle yourself emotionally when the outside world does not conform with your inside programming (your desires, expectations, demands, or models of how the world should treat you) you will have so much energy that you probably will sleep fifty per cent less. You will be joyous and loving, and really appreciate each moment of your life – no matter what’s happening in the world of people and situations outside you.”

“Real love is simply accepting another person. Completely and unconditionally!”

“We must also learn to love ourselves – right here and now. We need to feel that no matter how horrible we have judged our past actions, each day our life begins anew.”

-Ken Keyes, Jr., Handbook to Higher Consciousness
