Song Of Freedom Breakdown, lines 33-36
Picture from "How Stuff works"
If folks argue and slander you, let them:
they are playing with fire, trying to burn the sky.
When I hear them, their words are drops of nectar
and show me that this moment is free from conception.
Abusive words are disguised blessings
and my abusers good teachers.
This mind has room for slander and abuse
and is itself unborn compassion and patience.
Four lines this time, mainly because they all seem to fit together so well.
These lines should boost ones confidence! The slander of others or arguments can be seen as a teaching in itself. In a world where talking behind ones back, and trash tale in general is common these lines have even greater meaning!
Take a look at some current events, see if you can draw some parallels to where abusive words have helped the target.
I welcome comments, but I may integrate them into the commentary.
I hope that my efforts are helpful in clearing my own delusion as well as that of others,
