I came across this statement today, and I have to admit, it actually knocked me sideways. I guess it's something I have known and believed for quite some time, but the way this is phrased just awakened a new awareness in me. It is both penetratingly and profoundly true...

    I sort of learned this while I was social-working, you learn not to take it personally.

    It is true. <3
    There is a profound difference between knowing a cliche and being 'knocked sideways' by hearing it at a 'gut level'. In other words knowing it.

    In a sense that is the value of good companionship. We keep saying and hearing the same old dharma until our ears are unblocked and we finally hear what has been said so many times.

    I did hear, it waz plan! o:)

    PS. Be kind.

    Iz masterplan! ;)

    I still wonder why someone chose a meditating Soto Zen monks picture
    to highlight a Kundalini Yoga teacher's saying

    even if that saying is a particularly nice take on what ego is and what it isn't.

    I take it all personally. Even if false, we can be truly hurt by damages. It is in that impartial reaction that the reflection becomes exposed ...
