Said by an Enlightened...
Since you said parents and siblings, you have one excuse – you did not choose these people. If it was about husband and wife, there was a choice – you could not blame it on someone else!
The family is a good training ground for you to know your limitations. You are cocooned with a certain number of people – which means every day, whatever you do, you have to step on each other’s toes. There are things they do that you hate, but still, you have to be with them. It isn’t like your Facebook family of 10,000 – if there is someone you don’t like, you click him out.
A family is a beautiful place for you to grow beyond your likes and dislikes. Your likes and dislikes are the basis of compulsiveness within you. When you are stuck up with likes and dislikes, consciousness is out of the question. The moment you like or dislike something, you naturally behave compulsively – favorably compulsively to what you like, in a reactive way compulsively to what you do not like.
The above is all the filth we hold about our degree of inactiveness in making choices.
Next story brings the remedy or cure which can change the way you see these things.
