Know that all feelings, virtues, or states of being do not come from you.
Happiness, sadness, anger, excitement, laziness, clarity, uncertainty,
fear, passion, even enlightenment itself; these do not belong to you.
They are from the divine.
What is your duty, then?
It is to accept these for what they are, and to take responsibility for
yourself by remaining aware.
Awareness, witnessing is yours.
Anything else, you can take neither pride nor regret for.
To fight these other things, or to let yourself be consumed by them, both
of these paths are foolish.
Simply know that they are.
Be watchful, and be transformed.
