Immune to Other's Opinions

  1. "The whole world could praise Sung Jung-Tzu and it wouldn't make him exert himself.  The whole world could condemn him and it wouldn't make him mope.  He drew a clear line between the internal and the external." Chuang Tzu

    This was written 4th century B.C.E, but still so true today.  How can we be so in tune with our inner selves that we are immune to both the praise and criticism of the outer world?   It is a daily practice for most humans, and it is equally important to be immune to the praise as to the criticism.  To rest content in our own souls is where peace resides.
