When all the answers to all the questions in the Universe are within you, how necessary is it to seek knowledge from outside you? When you have more than enough money in your pocket, you don't run out to the bank to get change. When you have plenty of butter in your refrigerator, you don't run out to the store to buy more. You don't go out to find that with which you are already fully stocked.
In terms of knowledge, your mind does not remember what I bequeathed to you. Your body has not forgotten. Your body and heart know more than your mind can contemplate let alone fathom.
Often you have felt that you must cut down your ideals to match the seeming reality of life. But it is life that is to rise to your ideals. Your ideals are not mistaken. Keep them. Your ideals are to be lived.
When earth rises to Heaven then there will be no necessity for ideals. When you live your ideals, what then can be less?
Until earth reaches Heaven, you must have an ideal picture in mind. Your ideal is closer to the truth than all that the world temporarily calls reality. Do not dispossess yourself of ideals, for what hope lies in being realistic?
If you were not concerned with what the world or someone in it might think of you, you would be a great leader of love. You would never hesitate from what is before you to do.
You would get up front and speak. You would always speak the truth, and you would speak it with love. You would be the leader of the universe.
All the rules of the world, no matter how changeable they are, have been like a clamp on you, and perhaps have made you feel like an outsider in your own land.
Once upon a time, you floated on an ocean of love. From the ocean, you were cast onto shore. Now that you roam the earth, you feel you are landlocked. The very Ocean that carried you to land is lapping at your feet, and yet you feel far away from it.
Well, then, come closer. Come closer to this vast ocean. It follows you.
Now that I have told you not to carry over yesterday's hurt feelings or annoyances, today I want to tell you that this doesn't mean you must continue every relationship or every dealing with a business or anything. Let Us say that a salesperson in a certain store was inconsiderate or rude to you, and you are not happy to go there anymore. You don't want to harbor a sense of the rudeness and hold a grudge, yet you are also free not to return to the store. You don't want to make a big deal of anyone's inconsiderateness, yet maybe that store is not the right place for you.
