There are so many wrongs in this world!

“The best I can do is simply to give up being displeased!”

What we don’t like in others is usually a reflection of some fault we have in ourselves. What we dislike in the world, too, usually points to something we need to change in ourselves — at least in terms of willingness to accept the inevitable.

Learn to accept life as it is. I don’t say, Never try to improve matters.

Do improve them if you can, always calmly and in support of the good. But realize that there are simply too many wrongs in the world for all of them to be improved very much. Your first need, always, is to remain calm and undisturbed in your Self.

Living Wisely, Living Well
