Be Your Own Observer
We have many different desires inside and each of them must go through correction in a specific order. Depending on the connection of desires inside the soul, a person reveals his connection with other people.
Therefore, we do not know the true reasons for the states we go through, but we have to understand that their order is predetermined. The only thing that depends on us is how to go through them: by way of Light or by way of suffering. In any case, without understanding why it is happening, we will have to accept the revelation of any state as a useful occurrence.
We don’t have any control over the things that are already happening. We have to accept the things that come to us with gratitude, correct them, and move on. We should never try to reject the next state because we thereby refuse to accept the means that are given to us for our advancement.
There are no states that do not facilitate advancement. Therefore, we shouldn’t torture ourselves with doubts: Is this a good state or a bad one? We shouldn’t give them any personal attitude. It’s best to look at the things happening to you “from aside,” as if you are an outside observer. I have to go through this state and that means I act, go through it, and advance onwards. Everything is for the best (HaKol Le Tova)!

Living In A Movie
Reality is projected on a three dimensional screen surrounding us and we must discover the truth.
Our work is to discover the truth about reality. Where is my true existence, where am I operating, and who am I really? We need to discover the Someone who is drawing the virtual reality for us, so that we will discover the real reality. We need to discover, actually, the Force that is passively operating.
Whoever begins to invest in this gradually discovers to what extent reality is transparent, that through it he can see the forces that draw this reality.
The reality that we know is a three dimensional screen that surrounds us on all sides and we must discover that there is Someone who is drawing it.

The Actor and the Scriptwriter
Mostly, an actor can slip behind the scenes to speak with the scriptwriter. If he has good suggestions to change or enhance the story, the scriptwriter will listen to him eagerly. After all, the scriptwriter also wants to produce the greatest production possible, and for sure, he is ready to adapt the script.
We too can slip behind the scenes to speak with the Scriptwriter of our life story. If we have suggestions that fit well with the overall production, and if we are willing to act out these changes, the Scriptwriter will happily adapt the script.
Don’t compete – others are you, your team. In the larger sense, everything around you is you, the larger you. Those who are more than you are; those who are less; even those who, superficially, stand at your life-station — all are a part of the greater you.
See their genius, anything they produce, any way they enhance the world, as something you started — a wish you expressed, a hope you nurtured — that this world should be a better place.
Likewise, see their act of spoiling, destroying, as being something you began. Some laziness, some sadness soured your face, robbed you of the gleam in your eye and the brightness of your smile, and this brought the pollution, the devastation around you.
The whole creation is in your hands. Take it. Make it into something beautiful, something you and others will enjoy. Be a happy and positive, singing and dancing world.
We should feel the Creator within us. Picture the Creator’s name golden, glowing, radiating holy energy – filling us with power, a burning wish to explore new concepts and achieve our heart’s every desire.
