And therefore everything in the World has the characteristics of smoke; you know when you blow a cigarette or pipe or something and a cloud of some and you see it in the sunbeam.
And it is full of whorls and designs and all kinds of marvelous things going on, and then slowly it disappears. Well everything is just like that.
You know there are two attitudes you can take to that state of affairs. You can say, sour grapes, it is all a lousy, wretched trap.
And I – here I am and I am given all these feelings of Love and attachment and joy of life, and then I fall apart.
My teeth drop out, my eyes become feeble, I get cancer or cirrhosis of the liver or something, and then it all falls apart, and it is too bad.
Therefore, therefore do not become attached to things, do not enjoy life. Treat it, holding it off like that – just like a very, very firm person who’s been jilted and says, never again will I get mixed up with Love because Love hurts.
