Nobody does more to you than you do to yourself
In nature everything is connected. Rocks, trees, birds, oceans and people. Partitions are visible because there are different shapes, but really, it’s all one harmonious interconnected thing. Human beings think we are separate. That’s the gift and curse of free will. But we are not separate.
Someone said to me “people don’t like me” and I simply ask “how much do you like you? Do you judge and criticise yourself for being unique or different?” In prison to punish people who are already being punished they use solitary confinement. In Nepal, when a monk has achieved the highest of standards in their VIP – they are rewarded with 3 years, 3 months, 3 weeks, 3 days in solitary confinement. What’s the difference? Monks learn to love the Buddha within… people in prison, don’t like themselves at all. That’s usually why they end up in prison.
Maybe a great place to start in corporate team-building and leadership is to help individuals like themselves more rather than motivational speeches that try to encourage them to be someone they are not!
