An inquirer asked a teacher, “How can I command whatever happens to me?”
“By being one with whatever happens.”
“What does that mean?”
“You really do not possess a separate self which is apart from anything; you are one with all of life. However, in your misunderstanding you think there is a you and an event, which causes division and conflict. Give up your belief in a separate self and oneness will be realized, which ends conflict. This is the secret of the ages. Come back to it every day. You will change.”
You become the commander of everything by not needing to command anything but yourself.
