I know this reminds you of ‘The Suzuki Samurai’ add.. but it certainly is an important one to practice.. I usually do.. its only occasionally when “I’m more of me in a moment” (its when you’re practically thinking about just your self.).
Ok, so what I want to make you understand is, that, there are situations, when there’s a mistake by someone, may be at the swimming pool while you’re learning, somebody hits you.. its a mistake, may be in the cafeteria, your tea/coffee spills coz of someone, we get angry, not noticing the fact that it was a mistake, it could happen with any body, it could be you for someone else at some other point of time.. the key thing here is to smile back kindly and say its fine. So that they don’t get hurt for a mistake which happened un-knowingly. If you’re thinking about some person who was rude to you or behaved ill-mannerly to you just out of jealousy/ego, to those I have the answer of forgiveness, just smile back at ‘em and forget about it, believe you me, some point or the other in their life, they’ll feel guilty for it. If a pig is playing in the mud.. doesn’t mean we jump in the mud and fight with the Pig, believe me the Pig will be a more dirty player coz its his game.. not ours..
We are distinguished by our nature and by our actions, not by matching up the Piggy’s standard..
