Do I dream of the future? Plan and train for it? Then I’m fear-soaked. “Take no thought for tomorrow.” We’re not invited to compromise. Not a few thoughts. Not one thought. No thought.
We have the same mission—to please ourselves. Perversely, right from the beginning, we are trained to please others: Mum and Dad, teachers and coaches, priests and politicians. People-pleasers have a slave mind. This is little understood.
