Oftentimes, we believe in something untrue; indeed we do. There is only one truth, in everything. However, for the most part many of us rationalise (to our best possible) the answer to that which confuses us. This may be in regard to a million and one things occurring throughout the day.
We may question a greeting: Was that cynicism we heard, or is he/she a little overwrought? Did that vehicle deliberately cut me off? Is his/her silence, rudeness, or did he/she perhaps not see me?
Oh yes, Dear Hearts, millions upon millions of nuances, good and bad so-called, afflict our day. And what, if anything, should we do about such trifles?
The answer is in the question. Yes, Dear Ones, many millions upon millions of ‘trifles’ such as these will plague us ad-infinitum; should we allow.
The answer lies in not allowing such trifles to assault us. And how, you ask, can this be done?
It is not easy, however, Dear Ones, it is a simple answer. The trick is to learn this quickly and apply it constantly. Yes, Dear Hearts; if we want to be free of confusion, second guessing and manipulation we will work steadily toward that which our dearest has learned.
Distance from the minor trifles will satisfy your desire for peace of mind. Yes, Dear Ones; learn how not to be affected by the trifles that beset you.
Firstly: Desire to be free of those pesky troubles, and free you will become.
Secondly: Be consistent in naming those trifles when they arise. That’s right. Name the trouble! Once named, a pesky troublesome trifle disintegrates into the nothingness from which it came.
And from where did it come?
That’s an easy question to answer: It came from your mind.
You think not? You think it did not originate in your mind, Dear Heart?
If you answered no; then do tell, Dear One; from where did it come?
We have engineered the mind of man (the brain) to be troublesome, Dear Hearts; yes indeed. In order for perfection to be achieved, the troublesome mind must be understood in order for it to be soothed and calmed.
And what, pray tell, soothes and calms the mind? We shall tell you:
You, Dear Heart: Yes, you; armed with the knowledge of truth.
