Chapter 8: Life Is beyond Your Control
Energy is neutral. If somebody is releasing energy and you don’t know how to make it positive, your own anger will arise. Watching an angry person, you will feel restless and angry. If you know how to use it - and tremendous energy is being released - you can absorb it.

This was not because of the group but because of you. You are still resisting the idea of having to lead the group alone.
You should drop the resistance, because leading this group is going to be very helpful for you - and that is why I am insisting you do them.

Lao Tzu says that the whole world is clever, only I am an idiot.
