“The difference between Heaven and Hell is that you are doing it willingly or unwillingly. Doing something willingly makes a world of joy. So you take on attitudes. This is good, this is bad.
For instance, there are no good people. There are no bad people. Most people are somewhere in between. The moment we think we are good, we are entitled to destroy the bad. Anybody who is not like you must be bad. The basis of goodness is decided by you. If you want to work with ideal people, I haven’t found any.
If someone can make you happy or unhappy, you are enslaved by them. If someone decides what happens within you, this is the ultimate slavery. What happens within you is your own making. If you are bothered by people, you will always feel miserable. Instead think, ‘How I am is my choice.’ ”
