3. It is totally about me!

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.
