There are four such things, that if every human acted upon them, then every human would become independent of all things:
• The first is that if every person realizes that his sustenance is already assigned and fixed by God and it will not be increased or decreased, then he will stop wishing for more
• The second is that if one recognizes that God has rights upon us and no one can fulfill those rights except us, then everyone will work towards fulfilling them.
• The third is that death is never far behind us and we cannot escape from it, so we should recognize it fully.
• The fourth is that we have a Master who is always watching us, so we should be ashamed before Him and avoid His disobedience. When this feeling of being watched seeps in, we will refrain from acts that bring us shame.
May God enable us to apply these things and may God protect us.
