Iam just wondering what your family think about you when they see that you are calm and still in (almost) every situation?
Do they think you are going on drugs or something other nice things?
My wife who is not a buddhist, and dont even want to listen to the teachings(unfortunatly), so she dont know
anything about non clinging, non attachment. But at same time have compassion towards "worldly things".
She think Iam strange, since I dont attach to things (most of the time) when things goes really wron, she is from Brazil
so she get nuts when something goes "wrong". I say to her, it will be fine, it will not be like this forever....
Then she just think I must have knocked my head, but she is also changing for the better when
she see iam just calm, then she also get calm after a while.
Its also a paradoxal teaching to have compassion for others, at the same time use the teaching with non clinging and non attachment.
What does people around you think about your calming behaviour? Do they see the diffrence after you started
practicing buddhism and meditation/mindfullness, do you get any comments?
This is not for self adulation, but iam just querious since a calming behaviour make every situation mutch better.
