If people can't control their own emotions then they have to start trying to control other people's behavior.
Saying something is "different" always diminishes its intrinsic value...even if the difference being described is "better". IT simply is what it is with its unique beingness having value just because of its existence.
If I think "I bought it so I must use/consume all of it." it owns me. If I bought it so that I can use/consume only what I want then I own it. Oh, the ensnaring legacy of "clean your plate"!
We can't travel back in time because time doesn't exist.
Translating the symbols of our lives into what they represent is how we approach "truth". The root of all errors of humankind is the inability to do this...believing that the "symbols" we encounter are a finite reality that have nothing behind them.
Every exterior has an interior. It's the quality of a superficial mind to be willing to be content with the outside only. As long as this remains the case it is impossible to grock the relationship to the universal. And, its the relationship to the universal that is represented by the word "truth".
Become aware that expansion from the universal center is the principle upon which the mystery is life is built and this is the key to seeing the interior of every exterior!
Life becomes richer, fuller and more harmonious in proportion to how much "inner" we make visible.
