with understanding and without judgment.
I especially apply this while talking with my mother and mother-in-law. Although I don’t always agree with their opinions or perspective about others and their own life situations, I have started to practice
in listening to them.
Just as Baba teaches, I am now realizing the great joy that lies in being the sounding board for both these sweet ladies in my life, who carry their own goodness and life experiences.
