The conscious mind knows the secret of living impersonally. – Vernon Howard
The whole world doesn’t revolve around you. When someone says something or appears to mean a certain thing, it’s not aimed at you! And what if it is?
Once you get that, you’re free. You couldn’t care less about what the whole world thinks. You’re still a loving and caring individual of course, but you’re not unduly affected by others.
A conscious mind is one that’s aware of where your thoughts come from and what they lead to. You are then conscious of all your reactions to events. Your reactions to or lack thereof determines how peaceful you can be.
When you don’t think that the whole world or others are conspiring against you, you can be at ease. And that’s the goal. Once you’re at ease you are a more effective human being in all arenas of life!
