Thankful for Harm

I have been thinking quite a bit about the married life and, in my case at least, it seems to be the perfect vehicle for developing the qualities that I am so sorely lacking. Seeing my wife add a true treasure, beyond the physical and womanly charms she possesses, had really helped to reframe things. Granted, it’s not easy but when is it ever eau to learn anything of impressive?

When someone disparages or criticizes us, speaks badly about us to others, or spreads rumors or lies about us, we should try not to get angry or retaliate, but to think, “This is helping me to get enlightened.” ened.” In fact, if we practice patience, the person is helping us to get enlightened.
