Don't make a Big Deal of anything - just accept things as they come to you. The Universe knows what it's doing. So don't develop a big ego, and don't be afraid.

I would suggest that the next time a What If starts badgering you, look it straight in the eyes and ask it, 'All right, what's the very worst that could happen?' And when it answers, ask yourself, 'What could I do about it?' You'll find there always will be something. Then you'll see that you can have power in any situation. And when you realize that, the fears will go away.

When a stream comes to some stones in its path, it doesn't struggle to remove them, or fight against them, or think about them. It just goes around them. And as it does, it sings. Water responds to What's There with effortless action.

The Chinese are very practical people - they have no respect for things that sound good but don't work. In the East generally, and in China especially, philosophy has always been considered of no value unless it can be, and is, applied in one's daily life.

Without difficulties, life would be like a stream without rocks and curves - about as interesting as concrete. Without problems, there can be no personal growth, no group achievement, no progress for humanity. But matters about problems is what one does with them.

The main problem with this great obsession for Saving Time is very simple: you can't save time. You can only spend it. But you can spend it wisely or foolishly. The Bisy Backson has practically no time at all, because he's too busy wasting it by trying to save it. And by trying to save every bit of it, he ends up wasting the whole thing.
