I am unaffected by praise or blame. My love and compassion envelop all; My Grace can be shared by all. I am declaring this so that you may face all this with fortitude. The more you dig, the deeper the derision; the higher the mound, the taller the praise. People with a disease in the nose cannot appreciate the fragrance of a flower. Those who cannot appreciate or recognize the Divine are suffering from an illness which handicaps them to do so.
