Each of us is burdened by an unlimited number of

have a strong opinion and point-of-view,
and are sure that we know how everything is supposed to be.

of happy people and unhappy people
through two different, but complementary mechanisms,

in this case by sharing my emotional outlook on life.

If you have an emotional reaction in the presence of someone,
your heart is telling you that you have
not resolved your issues with them.
In other words, you have not truly forgiven that person.
All of this begs the question, how do we forgive?
First, cease lying to yourself and stop telling yourself stories
about why you behave the way you do.
Stop blaming your behavior on other people
and take responsibility for your emotional reactions.
If you could forgive all the people in your life
who have hurt or wounded you
it would be possible to be in control of your behavior
instead of being in reaction to other people all of the time.
Imagine living life without experiencing
a constant emotional roller-coaster of pain, anger, and jealousy!
That would be bliss!
-Sheri Rosenthal

Ordinary people seem not to realize
that those who really apply themselves
in the right way to philosophy
are directly and of their own accord
preparing themselves for dying and death.

I walk the path - the way - the way of ways -
to the end that is not an end.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
