Faith in the electric kettle alone will not boil the water!
One has to learn this art of dealing with sorrow or happiness, which is passing all the time.
Whatever unhappiness that has not yet reached me, I avoid.
If I do that, then I have enough strength and energy to deal with the sorrow that does reach me.
I don't invite it, I don't anticipate it, and I don't run into it.
The intelligence points clearly to the sorrow and avoids it.
The sorrow that has already reached me, I allow to blow over.
Simplicity, goodness, integrity, sincerity and other divine qualities are gifts of God - they cannot be acquired.
