MUCH OF YOUR PAIN IS SELF CHOSEN

1471121_693924463953568_1284465401_nThis is true. All your misery, all your pain… Much of it is not imposed by others. Against that which is imposed by others, revolt, but that which you have chosen yourself – drop it. There is no need to watch. Just the understanding that “I have imposed it upon myself,” is enough – throw it away.

Let others watch you throw it! Seeing you throwing it away, perhaps they will also understand, “Why unnecessarily suffer? – The neighbors are throwing away their grief.”
Your jealousies, your anger, your greed – they all bring pain. Your ambitions, they all bring pain. And they are self-chosen.
