Quote 14 Dec

“When you listen to someone, you should give up all your preconceived ideas and your subjective opinions; you should just listen to him, just observe what his way is. We put very little emphasis on right and wrong or good and bad. We just see things as they are with him, and accept them. This is how we communicate with each other. Usually when you listen to some statement, you hear it as a kind of echo of yourself. You are actually listening to your own opinion. If it agrees with your opinion you may accept it, but if it does not, you will reject it or you may not even really hear it.”
― Shunryu Suzuki, Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind

I read a chapter of Zen Mind every day in my work day to find my internal locus. It helps me to do my tasks. It’s also my response to two great friends -ego and anger. If keep these two guys in check. I can easily do the task. I also feel there are no right and wrong, the guy who doesn’t think about others is wrong. I feel every body deserves to evolve and have their opinions and accept them as they are.

This for today, have a good day dear friends.

Love, Suresh
