In my work as a healthcare provider in a busy clinic, my interactions with patients often flow along smoothly. Sometimes, though, they do not. And when I am feeling stuck in an interaction with a patient, it helps me to remember that this person is God.
I consciously hold in my awareness that this person is special to and valued by their friends and family and
by God, and that this person deserves my respect.
I then, typically, experience an opening, perhaps a subtle softening in my heart or an inspiration for a new way in which to explain something to the patient, or a new clarity about what to do or say next.
From Baba’s words, I realize that when I am doing this, I am aligning myself with dharma. Thank you, Baba, for giving me a deeper understanding of my practice with this teaching.
