“The antidote for misery is to think less about yourself. When you look at world events and think you are suffering for others, know it is the twang of your own pain that you are feeling. You want to help, and yet your feeling sorry for another adds another log of misery to the fire.
Reduce misery in the world by uplifting yourself. When you feel miserable, it is echoed to the world. Your feeling sorry for the world does not benefit it. Just as with an individual who is hurting, your feeling sorry for him does not help him. It may, indeed, help keep him where he is. Stop feeling sorry for the world. With the power of your heart and mind, raise the world above the mire it seems to be in. When you embrace misery, you offer alms to it.”
Gloria Wendroff, in “Heavenletters”
