Take up one idea.
Make that one idea your life - think of it, dream of it,
live on that idea.
Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body,
be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone.
This is the way to success.

-Swami Vivekananda

To the mind, the ego, this appears terrifying. When it looks at limitless and infinity, it sees meaninglessness and despair. However, the view changes to unending joy and wonder once the mind is let go of.

When you are enlightened, you stand alone. You need no supports of any kind because there is nothing to support; a separate you no longer exists. You realize that the whole ego experience was a flimsy illusion. You stand alone but are never, never lonely because everywhere you look, all you see is That, and you are That.”

"When you do nothing you can do nothing wrong". (Ste. Lorelyen)

Faithfulness is the antidote to bitterness and confusion. It confers the conviction that we are ready for anything the divine will intends for us.
Your aim should be to view the world as an integrated whole, to faithfully incline your whole being toward the highest good, and to adopt the will of nature as your own.

-Epictetus the Stoic

Circumstances do not rise to meet our expectations. Events happen as they do. People behave as they are. Embrace what you actually get.
Open your eyes: See things for what they really are, thereby sparing yourself the pain of false attachments and avoidable devastation.
Things and people are not what we wish them to be nor what they seem to be. They are what they are.

-Epictetus the Stoic

Once you have deliberated and determined that a course of action is wise, never discredit your judgment. Stand squarely behind your decision.
If, according to your best judgment, you are acting rightly, you have nothing to fear. Take a stand. Don't be cravenly noncommittal.

-Epictetus the Stoic

You are not an isolated entity but a unique, irreplaceable part of the cosmos and of the human community.
Look for and come to understand your connections to other people.
We properly locate ourselves within the cosmic scheme by recognising our natural relations to one another and thereby identifying our connections with and responsibilities toward one another.

-Epictetus the Stoic

"When we stop taking responsibility for how we feel, we project how we feel onto others. One of the fundamental insights about emotional maturity is that we are responsible for our own emotional lives. No one makes us feel any particular way. If ten people are subjected to the same emotional environment, they will all feel different about what was said to them. What happens is mostly on automatic pilot because we are not conscious of it."

~ Adyashanti

Oh Lord, thank you for helping me...
I have not done anything bad today...I have not
sworn, lied, cheated or procrastinated.
Now, it's time get out of bed.
