There is something good in all seeming failures. You are not to see that now. Time will reveal it. Be patient.
There is no end of craving. Hence contentment alone is the best way to happiness. Therefore, acquire contentment.
Do not brood over your past mistakes and failures as this will only fill your mind with grief, regret and depression. Do not repeat them in the future.
A desire arises in the mind. It is satisfied immediately another comes. In the interval which separates two desires a perfect calm reigns in the mind. It is at this moment freed from all thought, love or hate. Complete peace equally reigns between two mental waves.
