Fashion is just a sophisticated form of copying… we see what is ‘in’ and want to dress in the same way. Just to keep up with ‘them’! Who are these fashionable people anyway? They may be well dressed, but are they happy? Are they content? So why are we following them? And when someone doesn’t copy, we too give them all sorts of names… unfashionable, old fashioned, antique and even a fossil! Why not start your own fashion – of simplicity.
How do we get this degree from life? By being virtuous. By being tolerant and patient. By being kind and compassionate. By being content and not demanding. Then these blessings will come from the heart. They will be given automatically as the soul feels the purity of our intention. From this place we do not need to chase after or beg for blessings!
