Never maintain grudges or ill will. Never feed anger and hatred and keep them in your heart, for they darken the human spirit. Avoid feeling defeat and sorrowfulness when the feeling comes, "Oh, there is no way; it is useless, my life is useless." When those feelings come due to difficulty in the life, due to ill treatment by another, brush them off. Do not let them stay with you. Brush them off and cling to the light within. Cling to your knowledge of the love that is at the core of your being, of the brightness at the core of your being. Even if you are not feeling it just then, cling to that and remember the things that uplift the human spirit.
When there is a warm and good feeling, a loving association, a sweet moment or a kind act to do, an inspiring thought, a moment of happiness cling to those things. Remember always the brightness of the divinity that lies at the core and essence of all and everything. Remember that within your own spirit is a light, a flame, a heart flame, a flame of love and flame of truth and that flame is the very essence of you, of your nature. That essence of yours is light, is bright, is truth. The flame in the heart of each one is the same flame. Like so many small candles lit from a central flame, the fire is the same fire. The flame is the same flame, the same light. The one flame appears to be many but there is only one flame. That flame is bright and that flame is love.
