The Answers are Simple
You can spend your whole life
chasing complicated solutions to your problems,
but it will be a waste of time.
The answers are simple.
And they are close at hand.
Don’t waste your time blaming others for your mistakes
or accepting guilt for the mistakes others make.
You are responsible for what you think, say or do.
Others are responsible for what they think, say or do.
Keep this simple truth in front of you at all times
and act accordingly.
The way is straight.
It appears to be crooked only when you try to twist it
to accommodate your fear or your guilt.
