How do you know you’ve been set free and are no longer enslaved to the world and what they think of you?
When someone comes up and praises you for your great singing voice and you feel nothing.
Likewise when two minutes later someone comes up and criticizes your singing voice and still you feel nothing.
Then that is a man on the path who has mystical insight and relationship with God.
He’s so free from self esteem and positive approval and likewise detached from the negative also.
Good night .
