Ram Dass has been my guru for the past couple of years. I love this quote of his. I finally understand that when someone yells at me or is angry with me, it’s their self hatred, their pain with themselves and the world that they are projecting out and if I react to that, I get caught in their predicament (karma), I am the same wounded person not loving myself enough projecting my lack of self-love on others.
