Dalai Lama under attack: video.
No matter how beautiful a person seems, there will always be people who will notice his or her mistakes and amplify them to the boost his own sense of being good.
Two nights ago, I was up all night reading criticisms of Byron Katie and Eckhart Tolle, some spiritual mentors I have a lot of respect for. I felt pretty shitty going to bed after all that. That's how I came to my aforementioned conclusion: People will go to great lengths to prove they are better than others, even to the point of defaming others who are overall positive manifestations of love. They do so waving the banner of truth, but the anger and hatred is fairly evident in their voices and choice of words.
The question then becomes, how is my frustration toward these defamers affecting my mental, emotional, and physical state?
