The Master seemed quite impervious to what people thought of him. When the disciples asked how he had attained this stage of inner freedom, he laughed aloud and said:

“Till I was twenty I did not care what people thought of me.

After twenty I worried endlessly about what my neighbours thought.

Then one day after fifty I suddenly saw that they hardly ever thought of me at all”.


If you don’t run your own life, somebody else will. — John Atkinson
