The Mastery of What….

…mastery is not measured by the number of terrible things you eliminate from your life,

but by the number of times you eliminate calling them terrible.

The Buddha brought suffering onto himself, to look into the face of it, to see if he was that, and, if not, to see who he then was.

Jesus allowed himself to be crucified, to demonstrate who he was.
And what do you think you are doing here?

Why bother with this relative world if not to know yourself in your own experience?
And how else to do that except through the encountering of that which you are not?

“Why?” is the most useless question in the universe.
The only question with any meaning is “What?”

Asking “Why is this happening?” can only disempower you.
Asking “What do I want to make of this?”does exactly the opposite.

Here is a great secret:
The Why of anything is to produce the What of everything.
