Patience is guaranteed progress without a plan.
Self = see life flow.
Give away my self worth to an imaginary force that can save me, and make my life better, that's hope, so I move forward without distraction, ignoring critics who doubt and call me hopeless. With enough self confidence, hope becomes a curse word. Saying I know success, works better than hoping for it.
In heaven there are no rules, as there's nothing to judge. Self judgment happens elsewhere, outside the gates of Heaven.
