"It's ok to plan ahead, but don't emotionalize ahead. You can use your imagination without projecting emotions into the future; without fretting, worrying, anticipating troubles, and thereby actually creating troubles for yourself. It is so easy to make ourselves sick by continuing to focus on our negativity, our judgements, our guilt, and our upset. So when those feelings appear, observe them. When a distraction appears, observe it. When your hand comes up to your face, observe it. If a fly buzzes around you and comes at you, Observe it. But instead, many people cry, "Oh my God, here comes a fly, it is carrying a disease!" Then they are off and running." --John-Roger
Focus on what you want.
Observation, the key to letting go.
He wins who endures to the end.
