What captivated me the most during the retreat in Borobudur was when Lama Marut led us into two meditations. His words impacted me and made me more aware of the way I consciously or subconsciously view others. It was an excellent eye opener really. His quote continues to reverberate in my consciousness everyday:
“Some people will like you; some people will never like you. And if you try hard to make them like you, the greater the distance they create.”
It is a strong reminder that when I can’t change it why worry?
And when I can change it why worry?
A Final Thought
“ We all need joy, and we can all receive joy in only one way, by adding to the joy of others.”
