If I am angry or frustrated, I am going in the wrong direction.
True Self doesn’t have moods. Moods are egoic entities, the po-faced offspring of frustrated wanting.
It’s in the nature of the mind to misunderstand things. Knowing’s not thinking.
Disappointment, resentment, frustration—these are personal failings. They originate with me; I sustain them. I am responsible for me. If I am hurt, I hurt myself. If I am helped, I help myself.
The reason I want you to change is so that I can avoid the hard work of changing myself.
Anger, resentment, frustration, non-forgiveness—these are projections of something within me onto someone other than me. Projection locates a problem where it cannot be solved. It ensures that the problem does not get solved!
Who benefits from this arrangement? Ego does.
Blaming is our most enduring and devious dysfunction. It germinates in judgement. It is nourished in complaint.
