What Kind Of I Are You

Was watching one of those travel shows on the telly just now. The host was in Rishikesh, India and was speaking to one of the swamis there.

The swami said something that I liked. He said something along the lines of: if you choose to be proud, have an ego, just like a vertical 'I', you'd just be like a divider, a barrier.

Whereas if you choose to bend down, be humble, share, just like a horizontal 'I', you'd be like a bridge of love.

(Ok the swami phrased it better.)

He also said that you don't have to go to a cave, a forrest, or the Himalayas just to medidate. You are the one that needs to be at peace, no matter where you are. True too.
