Do not count on anything that comes from the outside
March 25th 2017
Those who want to be master of their destiny must not attach so much importance to what comes to them from the outside: difficulties or opportunities, gains or losses. They should just work, knowing that all possibilities are within them, and as a result they will become stronger and increasingly capable of facing all situations – the setbacks as well as the successes, for successes like the setbacks have their dangers. Whatever realm it may be, you must not trust any outward gain or success. If they come to you, they are welcome, of course, but do not count on them, for nothing outside you is permanent or really belongs to you. Sooner or later it will slip through your hands. You must simply work to strengthen yourself inwardly, to enrich yourself inwardly, in your heart, your mind, your soul and your spirit, so that everything you have acquired is yours forever. And thus you will always feel free and independent.
