Rather than "expecting" to be repaid
when we "loan" something to someone,

our ancestors, nurturers and others.
Request that any "loan" that we make be repaid FORWARD,

and then completely forget about the "loan."
It is no longer our business if, when, or how
the "loan" is repaid - or is not repaid.

When we are disappointed, we look for someone to blame.
Declaring someone to be at fault is the nature of anger.

but at some animate entity.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Action is a great restorer and builder of confidence.

- Norman Vincent Peale

I accept that no one else has ever been to blame

Wrong actions cause negative or evil mental vibrations

in our lives EXACTLY as they are.

a joyful new future for yourself.
