The Same Self Is in All of Us

timely and such a great way to put it.  yesterday i did a yoga audition and was interrupted by the yoga studio owner in the middle of it because he didn't like the way it was going. he made me feel small and unworthy and after i left, i kept re-playing it over in my head.  feeling angrier and angrier at the way i was treated, although during my interaction with him i was receptive and courteous.  reading this is asks me to forgive him, perhaps for his sake, but surely for my own.  his reaction was a mirror of his ups and downs, likes and dislikes, and with a calm mind i can parse his advice for what's valuable and not lose my Self, who is a worthy teacher with so much to offer.
