To be truly free, we must give up making demands on others in order to fulfill our wants and assumed needs (inadequacies.)

We cannot expect others to live their lives the way we have chosen for them.

If we stand in our integrity and allow life to live through us effortlessly, we will experience life as it was intended to be — peaceful and joyful. Anything more you demand of life than peace and happiness is foolish, superfluous and a waste of your energy, because the reward for a life well-lived is not money, fame and glory. It is peace and joy.

Choose carefully the rewards you seek. The wrong choices will leave you sad, lonely, exhausted and empty.
