The Natural Freedom of Mind

Since the One Mind, pure from the beginning-less beginning and with no need to grasp things other than itself and has nothing to do with an intermediary of with a fixed plan:

The individual might as well be happy

Since awareness has no objective relationship of any kind, no specific direction or focus

The individual might as well love everyone.

Since vision and commitment to vision has nothing to do with complacency or fear.

One might as well be joyous.

Since action and goals have nothing to do with success or failure, hope and anxiety, and it does not matter whether they are won or lost

The individual might as well be content

Since everything is an illusion with some more perfect than others-with no relationship to good or bad, being or not being

One might as well laugh from  beginning to end!
