In order to start moving towards success, you need hope but in order to achieve success hope should die. You will succeed when you start acting in the full conviction that you won't manage to do anything. But it won't bother you anymore as your main motive will be love and you'll simply have to do what you do...
It is bad not to hope because an absence of hope is harmful. Hoping for one thing is also the sin of idolatry and it will fall short too. God is everything, that’s why you should hope for everything at a time, understanding that you will not obtain everything.
About the exploitation of hope you should remember two important facts. First, that hope is a poison that in small amounts can cure. Second, hope is for the present, not for the future. If you leave hope in the present and use it as a force to move now, it will be miraculous and beautiful, but if you give it to the future, it will create fear and become the brake of the present.
In order to change the present and escape from the wheel of suffering, it is necessary to get rid of the hope for the future and the regrets of the past. When you focus on reality, you realize that the wheel in which the squirrel runs is the wheel of fear. The squirrel runs away from the fear of the past towards the fear of the future. Squirrel is so busy with his fears that he does not notice the present.
We live in a world of desires, desires are dreams. The servants of the dream are those in whom there is hope. Falling in love with your dream and believing in it, you will achieve great success in the world of desires.
Hope is like a fish hook. Hope is like a social Elevator. Hope is like an ascending and descending stream of air. Hope is wind. The wind is fair and not very, weak and strong. When you are caught on the hook, the main time to break, leaving the Elevator up, you need to get off the Elevator, otherwise you will go back down. Hope must be used as birds use the currents of the wind.
