One of my favorite essays by the master of motivation, Emmet Fox:
Take It Easy
By Emmet Fox, Find and Use Your Inner Power
Don’t hurry. You are going to live forever—somewhere. In fact, you are in eternity now; so why rush?
Don’t worry. What will this thing matter in twenty years’ time? You belong to God, and God is Love; so why fret?
Don’t condemn. As you cannot get under the other fellow’s skin, you cannot possibly know what difficulties he has had to meet—how much temptation, or misunderstanding, or stupidity within himself he has had to overcome. You are not perfect yourself and might be much worse in his shoes. Judge not!
Don’t resent. If wrong has been done, the Great Law will surely take care of it. Rise up in consciousness and set both yourself and the delinquent free. Forgiveness is the strongest medicine.
Don’t grumble. Consume your own smoke. Your own concept is what you see; so treat and change that.
Don’t grab. You cannot hold what does not belong to you by right of consciousness anyway. Grabbing postposes your good.
Don’t shove. You are always in your right place at the moment. If you don’t like it, change it scientifically by rising in consciousness. This will be permanent.
Happy New Year, 2015, everyone!
