In order to be free, you have to be willing to be free. You need to be sick of the old thought patterns that have been holding you back from reaching your highest potential. You need to take responsibility for your internal states and stop putting your power into the world
around you by blaming it for everything. You are the Mighty Chooser, not a passive victim.

I got into the habit for a while of blaming everyone for causing me anger, anxiety, or pain. Then I realized that I was also partially responsible, because I was the one allowed them to influence my energy field with mere words. I would interpret their words a certain way, create a story around the event, and then be miserable the rest of the day. I was disempowering myself by putting the keys to my inner peace into the hands of other people, and then would expect to receive a lollipop from the universe every time I got upset.

There are many ways in which you can prevent suffering for yourself, but it starts with a realization that you are the author of your emotional state. You aren’t just an editor, or a co­author. The day I started looking inside myself for solutions to my misery is the day I
put the power back into my own hands. You are the security guard to your inner sanctuary.

"Mental discipline is the most fundamental step we can take towards achieving [the most fulfilling life possible], but this isn’t something that’s taught in the classrooms or the workplace. We aren’t taught how to cultivate happiness or peace of mind, and nobody takes the time to explain topics to us such as ‘emotional alchemy’ or ‘mindfulness’. Instead, we are just sold “happy pills” at a pharmacy and told that we have a chemical imbalance in the brain causing our depression and suffering."

"I believe that the Universe is one being, all its parts are different expressions of the same energy, and they are all in communication with each other, therefore parts of one organic whole. This whole is in all its parts so beautiful, and is felt by me to be so intensely in earnest, that I am compelled to love it and to think of it as divine."

What did I dream about last night? It was something to do with fame and success cus I woke up mad.
