“All the things that offend you in some way play to your sense of self-absorption. That which offends you doesn’t offend the real you – it offends your idea of who you are. In the world of the eternal you, nothing ever goes wrong, so there is nothing to be offended by. But in the world of your ego, you are immediately jolted out of the blissful place of higher awareness into a world where you determine how others think, feel and behave. When they are not the way you believe they should be, you are offended.
When you have sufficiently restrained your ego, you will be able to treat the onslaughts of others in the same way that Castaneda was taught to think about the jaguar. It obviously makes no sense to be “offended” by a jaguar’s attack, because it’s just doing what jaguars do. Whether you like it or not, your fellow human beings are in some ways like the jaguar. They are doing what they do.”
Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, in “Your Sacred Self”
