    The short answer to this question is “drop fixed mind.” As I mentioned earlier, any time we start to think that our particular thoughts, emotions, or opinions are right and someone else’s are wrong, we are setting ourselves up for conflict. The world does not need more conflict. It needs intimacy.

    So it is with people: first let them do what they want, and watch them. This is the best policy. To ignore them is not good; that is the worst policy. The second worst is trying to control them. The best one is to watch them, just to watch them, without trying to control them.”12

    If you are sitting on the meditation cushion and you feel bombarded by jealous thoughts, that is a time for you to cut through this habitual thinking and come back to the present moment, come back to the breath. The more you come back to the present, the more you are loosening the hold jealousy has on you.

    Don’t try to get everything “right” in having this conversation but allow your presence to speak for you. Drop your set opinions around what they should take away from that conversation or how you would like it to run. Just be with whomever you are talking to, and your authentic presence will speak for itself.

    You may not have money to buy expensive clothes but . . . you can still express dignity and goodness. You may be wearing jeans and a T-shirt, but you can be a dignified person wearing a T-shirt and cut-off jeans. The problem arises when you don’t have respect for yourself and therefore for your clothes.”4

    “What happened in the past has already happened,” she said. “There is nothing you can do about that. What will happen is in the future. Let’s take a moment just to be with what is going on now. Let’s leave all of that behind and just be in this room.”
