MAKE PEACE WITH A GOOD, GENUINE PERSON EVEN IF HE IS IN THE WRONG
Swamiji draws our attention to the importance of winning over and befriending a good individual once again, who has drifted away from us, either due to a misunderstanding or a cause that has angered or displeased him.
Swamiji says… We meet different kinds of people during our journey of life. We bracket them in various categories… good, bad and not so bad, knowing very well that we shouldn’t be doing so. We all have the propensity to judge and discern the smallest speck in the other person’s eye, forgetting all the time that we have a log in our vision and will be judged by others at some point in time.
The time that we spend with each individual enables us to know the true value of each one of them and thus we should remember to leave no stone unturned in pacifying and soothing the ruffled feathers of a person… friend or relative… who we know is ‘genuinely good’… possesses all the traits that a noble soul should have… has always tread the Right path… never spoken the untruth… is the epitome of humility and goodness… but is angry with you. Can you afford to lose the company and friendship of a person who is blessed with such qualities ? A rare gem is hard to find in today’s day and age.
Win him over at any cost even if your ego orders you not to do so !
