Gurudev, you just said that we should not consider anyone as bad. If others treat us badly, how do we react to that?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

If others have a negative opinion about you, it is their problem, not yours. From your side, do not consider anyone as bad.

By doing this, your mind will be clear and pleasant and your intellect will be sharp. Otherwise, the people whom you consider as bad will begin to haunt your mind like a ghost.

When such thoughts get into your mind, you will not be able to do something creative.
