“Every time a person imposes his instincts unreasonably upon others, unhappiness follows”. 12&12 p44
The instincts this passage refers to are those for sex relations, material security, emotional needs, and companionship. When I impose upon and expect others to meet these desires, I am bound for misery. Instead, by simply not trying to demand, control, judge, and expect, I no longer have to live in recurring disappointment of others and the world around me.
With this new approach, each day becomes an exciting adventure rather than a dreaded voyage. Today I’ll make it a great one but not imposing my will on others. ILML!
