Good day, my friend. Welcome to A Moment with Moj. Thank you so much for downloading the show, I am so glad that you're here. Hope you are having a great day, Wednesday, so that means we're going to be continuing our look at Eastern philosophers. We welcome the Buddha on to the show and the Buddha tells us, "Conquer the angry one by not getting angry, conquer the wicked by goodness, conquer the stingy by generosity and the liar by speaking the truth."

WEBVTT 1 00:00:08.830 --> 00:00:15.269 Good Day, my friend. Welcome to a moment with modes. Thank you 2 00:00:15.509 --> 00:00:19.910 so much for downloading the show. I am so glad that you're here. 3 00:00:20.750 --> 00:00:26.300 Hope you are having a great day Wednesday. So that means we are going 4 00:00:26.339 --> 00:00:33.380 to be continuing our look at eastern philosophers. We welcome the Buddha onto the 5 00:00:33.460 --> 00:00:39.850 show, and the Buddha tells us conquer the angry one by not getting angry, 6 00:00:40.490 --> 00:00:46.329 conquered the wicked by goodness, conquered, the stingy by generosity and the 7 00:00:46.530 --> 00:00:56.200 liar by speaking the truth. Why is it that sometimes the simplest things are 8 00:00:56.359 --> 00:01:03.040 the hardest ones to do? On high vibration days, I can do all 9 00:01:03.079 --> 00:01:11.549 of those things. It's pretty easy and it's pretty straightforward, but I have 10 00:01:11.750 --> 00:01:17.750 to admit to you, my friend, my dear listener, that every day 11 00:01:18.780 --> 00:01:23.260 is not a high vibration day. And of course, when I say high 12 00:01:23.260 --> 00:01:30.099 vibration day, I mean when we're in tune with our higher self, our 13 00:01:30.219 --> 00:01:38.450 ideal self, our inner Buddha, if you will. I still have those 14 00:01:38.010 --> 00:01:44.489 other high vibration days, though. You know the ones. I mean, 15 00:01:45.409 --> 00:01:56.079 the ones where I'm vibrating with anger and I know that whoever or whatever angers 16 00:01:56.200 --> 00:02:01.230 you becomes your master. That's one of the first things that epictet is told 17 00:02:01.269 --> 00:02:07.789 me. But it can be just so much easier to meet people where they 18 00:02:07.830 --> 00:02:15.590 are, especially when we're right. You know, at the moment it seems 19 00:02:15.629 --> 00:02:23.139 like people can't even agree to disagree. We're right, you're wrong. So 20 00:02:23.300 --> 00:02:30.409 much anger out there right now. It can make us feel better to separate 21 00:02:30.569 --> 00:02:38.849 ourselves from the people whose views and and behaviors that we don't like to create. 22 00:02:38.969 --> 00:02:43.849 that US them. But, my friend, we have to be careful 23 00:02:44.599 --> 00:02:52.800 not to think of them as evil or less than or even and I know 24 00:02:52.960 --> 00:02:58.590 it's hard to not think of people as stupid if they don't hold our opinion, 25 00:02:58.669 --> 00:03:04.069 because how could they not? But when we do that, it makes 26 00:03:04.150 --> 00:03:10.030 it more likely that we're going to start lashing out at them the same way 27 00:03:10.069 --> 00:03:19.020 they lash out at us, and just like that we become just like them. 28 00:03:20.500 --> 00:03:24.939 Here's the thing. You don't have to be like them. Screaming your 29 00:03:25.219 --> 00:03:30.129 fool head off and flipping the bird while cutting off the mini van that just 30 00:03:30.449 --> 00:03:37.610 cut you off mode will not prevent you from being cut off again in the 31 00:03:37.849 --> 00:03:44.400 future. My friend, we can't be anger with anger. We can't be 32 00:03:44.800 --> 00:03:50.919 hate with hate. We have to stay true to that higher vision of ourselves. 33 00:03:52.080 --> 00:03:58.270 We don't want to become the monster that we're fighting. Carpet momentum, 34 00:03:58.389 --> 00:04:00.110 my friend, I'll talk to You Tomorrow
