That something (call it a universe or any other name) has come about and produced forms, some of which feel separate and the various emotions, you can only feel a deep compassion. Most of all to yourself, as you too are as illusory conceived as the rest.
Any negative must be put aside as to attempt to form a better way whilst being a suffering part can neither benefit you or the whole.
Never make a choice whilst sad. All decisions must arise from happiness and so the future will be based on this.
