“The definition of good control is to control or to leave totally uncontrolled at will. That’s the two sides of control. Neither one is more important than the other. They are both important.
“To be able to do either of those two things at your own determinism determines the happiness and success of your own life, and that’s for sure: to control or leave uncontrolled anything in your environment at will. Boy, this is really superman stuff, see? You would certainly exteriorize at will. You’re busily controlling the body and all of a sudden you don’t control the body. …
“You should be able to control or leave uncontrolled the people you are with. You control them while you yourself are talking to them, and you leave them uncontrolled when they’re talking. And we have it as a two-way comm and then we have some interchange and randomity in existence, and so it becomes livable. … And if you’re satisfied with either side of this—how fascinating—people never worry you anymore. That is the end of people as a concern, see?”
“Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.”
Roman Emperor, Marcus Aurelius
