“Life in this physical body is very short, even if we live to be one hundred years old. When I discovered this, I decided not to waste my time creating conflict, mainly with the people I love. I want to enjoy them, and I do that by loving them for who they are, not what they believe. The story they create is not important. I don’t care if my mother’s story doesn’t agree with my story; I love her and I enjoy her presence. I know not to impose my story on her; I don’t impose my story on anybody. I respect her story, I listen to her story, and I don’t make it wrong.
If other people try to write your story, it means they don’t respect you. They don’t respect you because they consider that you are not a good artist, that you cannot write your own story, even though you born to write your own story. Respect comes directly from love; it is one of the greatest expressions of love.”
Don Miguel Ruiz, in “The Voice of Knowledge”
