    Very affirming for me! I have a new job after 6 months of unemployment. I was at my previous job for 10 years as the workplace became more and more toxic. During that time I began to study the Dharma and learned to meditate. I have been determined to begin this new position from a place of mindfulness and treating coworkers and patients kindly. 3 months in, and I find a coworker is baiting me just to see if she can provoke me into losing my patience. It is a challenge. Your wise words are helpful.

    Thank you Lodro! It’s all about how I show up! I’ve been focusing on this for a while now and I am starting to reap the benefits. I find myself more relaxed, more willing to listen, taking things less personal, softening my voice and facial expressions. I still have a long way to go, but now that I am in the right direction. It has helped a lot to set my intention in the morning when I meditate and then review my behavior at night when I go to bed.

    This was great! High schools and colleges need this message as do most adults. Thank you!

    Spot on! Thank you so much. This really speaks to me, especially right now. I left my job at the end of last year as the Director of Marketing for a global medical device company after 4 years in that role. I took my dream trip to de-stress and rejuvenate myself after years of burnout and since I’ve been back I’ve been doing some deep thinking and soul-searching about my values, goals and how to find a next step that is in line with them. After a 20 year career, I’ve seen and experienced a lot. As you noted, I have become extremely discerning which can be scary because it means saying no to a lot while looking for the right thing to say yes to. On one hand I would like to help be a force for change in the corporate world, but on the other hand it seems like one needs to be in a C-level or very high level position in order to truly influence the culture and values of an organization and it’s hard to get to that level in the first place when your values aren’t in line with the current leadership’s values, which are the very values you’d most like to change. And it can feel very lonely, frustrating and exhausting to be an island of one value set surrounded by a sea of a differing value set. Please keep spreading your teachings and thinking!
