Whenever we have an issue with the things people say or do, that’s our sense of identity feeling threatened.
The ego is constantly defending its borders, forever swatting away the mosquitoes of other people’s offenses, dodging the slings and the arrows of judgment, intolerance, misunderstanding. A lifetime of vigilance and control.
The soul has no borders or checkpoints. It takes everything on. It cares so much, it can’t afford to care what anyone thinks.
An embodied soul is like the world’s doormat.
