In your quiet place, visualize yourself as a compassionate deity who radiates pure love.
There is no need to control; You shine on all creation without judgment.
And, there is no need to be controlled; You create and follow your own path.
True guides await;
Don't seek masters who demand obedience. They are power hungry and want to enslave. They do not have your best interest at heart.
Seek friends who have gone before. They will help you along your path.
