The ‘I’ dictates that one experience is desirable
and another is to be rejected
solely in terms of whether the experience
supports or threatens the ‘I’.

Picking and choosing in this way
seems to guarantee dissatisfaction in our lives,
for we control neither the circumstances
that give rise to each experience
nor our emotional responses.
