“Matterism comes from seriousness and importance. How you catch matterism is by having too many things that matter. What matters is that you allow your heart – not your ego – to rule your life. Then very little matters because you will be a humble person and you’ll take most of life as it comes. You can change the bits you don’t like and move away from those that you can’t change.
Once you get to the point where almost everything doesn’t matter, you’re emotionally free. If it rains, you get wet; if they don’t show up on time, you wait; if they don’t pay you, you eat less; if they don’t love you, so what, you didn’t come to please them anyway; if they don’t think you’re special, that’s marvelous, it frees you from having to thank them for their compliments. If life doesn’t go the way you want, accept the way it does go, use it as your teacher.”
Stuart Wilde, in “Whispering Winds of Change”
