My husband is a wise and clever man. He is the best teacher and guide I have had the good fortune to learn from.
Two of the most useful lessons I have received from him so far:
1. Listen. Agree. Ignore – be respectful and listen to what people have to say. Be compassionate and allow the other person to take their position bybagreeing with them. Be unattached to the ideas, opinions and attitudes of others, follow your own path in your own way.
2. Wear the feedback – do that which makes you, you. Whatever you do, if in the essence of devotion, is good, regardless of the conditioned reactions of those around you.
More thoughts influenced by my husband, Buddha and yogic philosophy to come.
