Do not create stress, just live

We will do a small experiment right now. You all will start thinking about your ambitions. Does along with ambition come the thought of possible frustration of ambition, that I may not achieve my targets? That thought becomes stress.

In really living, in being, there is no stress but in anticipation, in planning, in targeting, in desirous thinking, there is a lot of stress.
