No more idle jabbering. What comes out of your mouth is as important as what goes into it.

You are a very nervous fish, fleeing every large ripple . Later, you became used to the ripples but still had no insight into their cause. You can see that a magnificent leap of awareness is required for fish to extend the vision beyond the water in which it is immersed to the source of the ripples.
A similar leap of awareness is required of you. When you understand the source clearly, you'll see that the ripples of your mind have nothing to do with you; you'll watch them, without attachment, no longer compelled to overreact every time a pebble drops. You will be free of the world's turbulence as soon as you calm your thoughts. Remember - when you are troubled, let go of your thoughts and deal with your mind.

You see, Dan, when you resist what happens, your mind begins to race; the same thoughts that impinge upon you are actually created by you.

You don't have to do anything except to stop seeing the world from the viewpoint of your own personal cravings. Loosen up ! When you lose your mind, you'll come to your senses. Until then, however, I want you to continue to observe, as much as possible, the debris of your mind.

It is better for you to take responsibility for your life as it is, instead of blaming others, or circumstances, for your predicament. As your eyes open, you will see that your state of health, happiness, and every circumstance of your life has been, in large part arranged by you - consciously or unconsciously.

To survive the lessons ahead you are going to need far more energy than ever before. You must cleanse your body of tension, free your mind of stagnant knowledge, and open your heart to the energies of true emotion.

"We run, not because we think it is doing us good, but because we enjoy it and cannot help ourselves. The more restricted our society and work become, the more necessary it will be to find some outlet for this craving for freedom. No one can say, 'You must not run faster than this, or jump higher than that.' The human spirit is indomitable."

Our children essentially need two things from us: 1. They need to be recognized for who they really are. 2. They need us to create an example for them of how to live effectively in the world of form.
