Only flush the toilet if you need to. It’s staggering how much water we would save if we flushed 2 times fewer a day. In the US alone, that would be (on average) 5 gallons per flush times 2 flushes times approximately 306,000,000 which equals over 3 billion gallons of water per day. That’s a lot of water! On a more personal level, in the average US household (of 2.5 people), that would be 25 gallons per day and 9,125 gallons a year. Small things can really add up. Cheaper water bills and more fresh water on the planet to drink. Win win!

If you say that getting the money is the most important thing, you will spend your life completely wasting your time. You’ll be doing things you don’t like doing in order to go on living, that is to go on doing things you don’t like doing… which is stupid! Better to have a short life that is full of what you like doing than a long life spent in a miserable way. And after all, if you do really like doing what you’re doing, it doesn’t matter what it is, you can eventually become a master of it. It’s the only way to become a master of something… to be really with it. And then you’ll be able to get a good fee for whatever it is.

Effort of Ego

The ego is not a thing but a subtle effort, and you cannot use effort to get rid of effort—you end up with two efforts instead of one. The ego itself is a perfect manifestation of the Divine, and it is best handled by resting in Freedom, not by trying to get rid of ego, which simply increases the effort of ego itself.
