• Open yourself up to the density of the everyday world, loving the things that are ordinary, looking at them and respecting them.
  • Even when we get what we want, we then want something more or different because the habit of wanting is so strong.
  • Be satisfied with doing the best you can and do not worry about what others say.
  • Regret: why re-experience something gone wrong? Wasn't it bad enough the first time? Let go. Move on.
