Three results of accepting the Divine within myself:

  • Compassion for myself flows to others
  • Sane caregiving for myself extends to others
  • Others see divinity within me

Three doors opened by Hope:

  • Possibility, the Door of All Worlds
  • Divinity, the Door of All Wisdom
  • Serenity, the Door of All Peace

Three benefits of an ‘interesting’ life:

  • I get to learn from life experiences
  • I get to fake trust in the divine until trust actually develops
  • I get to really internalize the meaning of irony

Three judgments of a standard of conduct:

  • Wrong, when I expect it of others
  • Wrong, when I push it on others
  • Right, when I live it and accept the outcome
The reading said that expectation leads to resentments. Agreed, when it is only I being judgemental. But take the “I” out of “expectation” and you get “EXPECTATON”, a giant metal robot heedlessly destroying everything in its path. It’s bad enough when we push our individual expectations on others; when we do so as a group, it’s far far worse. ☺
