Cast aside reclusiveness. We do nothing by ourselves and are never alone. We are not isolated from the world—we are both part of it and the whole of it. The world is a friend when we are friendly with ourselves. Make the world an enemy and we only harm ourselves. Be both celebratory and gracious in the face of accomplishment, a silent acknowledgement to our internal and eternal co-conspirator.
Cast aside guilt. Who among us avoids mistakes? Do not feel guilty for mistakes in thought and action. Shit happens. Mistakes are learning opportunities. Guilt has no place in our lives. Guilt holds on to mistakes and causes them to occur again. Guilt isolates us from our internal partner, the Subconscious. Isolation and guilt are the destroyers of happiness, and the creators of numerous illusions.
