When there is no comparative judgment, there is no more need to be right. Goodbye, Blame!
When I acknowledge how much other people know, there is no more need to know everything. Bye bye, Know It All!
When I honor my own divinity, I can honor the divinity in all other beings. Even Donald Trump!

We all have our jobs to do and our roles to play, as Krishna said to Arjuna in the Upanishads when Arjuna wanted to stop being a war leader because he saw the suffering that caused.

I no longer ask myself whether I have overcome my hate. Rather I now ask myself, have I overcome my attachments? That’s the real game changer.
