Find to whom the cruel world appears and you will know why it appears so cruel. Your questions are perfectly legitimate, but just cannot be answered unless you know whose is the world. To find out the meaning of a thing you must ask its maker. I am telling you: You are the maker of the world in which you live – you alone can change it, or unmake it.

— Nisargadatta Maharaj, from the classic ‘I am That‘, p 380

    I never thought of it like that. That’s actually a great, practical piece of advice.
