When I moved to Asia, I learned again and again that Asian people hate Criticism.
And this is so dam wrong, even it is part of the Hindu and Buddhist Scripture!
We should not tell the Truth if it hurts..(Hindu and Buddhist Scripture)???
To the same time, we should reduce our EGO without getting any Criticism…??
I never could understand this!!!
And the Bible tells us that we can get better only through Criticism…
Jesus said everything that you take in (Criticism) can’t poison you! Only what you give out (insults) can poison you.
One honest word (regardless if it hurts) is better than 1000 flatter words! Bible
For sure I hate the Bible and love the Srimad Bhagavatam and the I-Ging.
In ancient time lived a king who wanted to be dressed at best… And after some time some cheaters introduced him to wear their special cloth… All the people in the palace said how handsome the King looks with his new cloth. … And then some Kids were coming to the great emperor and asked: Why the king doesn’t wear any cloth…
And so is this with all of our blind spots that we can’t see because we are blinded by our own mistakes.
We should embrace everybody who criticizes us…
We should build our enemy a throne because through him we will learn the best… Sufi Wisdom.
When somebody is abusing us, then it might be a projection of himself or some information that can improve our life. How can his abusing harm us?
If the abusing hurt us, then there must be a reason for that…
Maybe we want to hide something?
Maybe the guy is speaking out what we think from ourselves or our parents have said that already to us….
We are the world… everything that we see/hear is already in us. Our brain is comparing the stuff from outside to the information that is inside already.
Only our Ego can be hurt because we want to be something and not to be…
That is crucial to understand… we like to blemish other people for our suffering.
You can say nearly everything to me, and I don’t care… Because I know already that I am ALSO a bad guy, an asswhxxx …
If somebody is saying for instance to me: You are a Nazi. I think I am ALSO a Nazi…
And if you think that you are only a Nazi…
You are totally wrong!!!
The Idea is, we are the world, and we can see/hear only that what is already inside of us.
First, we see our own sins by others … Goethe
Through an insult or through our negative thoughts about another guy we can discover our own faults. What is wrong with that?
We can even learn about our blind spots when we abuse somebody!
