When you lose touch with yourself, when you are no longer connected to your inner Self, you believe that others can tell you what is right and what is wrong, important and unimportant, what you should and shouldn’t do. And so you wander around in the dark. Thrown back and forth by the contradicting opinions of others.
See that the others are as confused and ignorant as you are. And the few wise men who have reestablished the connection with themselves, will neither tell you what is good or what is wrong, what you should and shouldn’t do. The only thing they can tell you is how to reconnect with yourself.
How do you recognize a wise man? You recognize him by the fact that he will show you how you can help yourself. With endless patience, he will then repeatedly hand over the responsibility for your happiness and peace to yourself.
