Ram Dass to the rescue

It was Saturday evening, I was trying to concentrate on numbers and trying to write the Weekly. But couldn’t, because the people across the road were having a wild and drunken birthday party and had brought in a pair of massive speakers that churned enough bass to make my windows rattle from 50 metres away. Not only that, their taste in music was extremely annoying. Not happy, not concentrating, not getting the job done. In one word, angry. Then this link shows up and at the end of the excerpt from one of the Ram Dass books comes this:

“When you get frustrated because something isn’t the way you thought it would be, examine the way you thought, not just the thing that frustrates you. You’ll see that a lot of your emotional suffering is created by your models of how you think the universe should be and your inability to allow it to be as it is.”

And Ram Dass gets my supremely overactive ego in check for what seems like occasion number one hundred. I get back to work, the Weekly gets written and sent on time. Thank you again, Ram Dass.
So how was your weekend? Hope you had a good one.
