From Friends to Enemies

"Can you tell me a situation where you have an absolute friendship with somebody and then within one week you are enemies?  What happens?  A fight begins on a pursuit of an idea which is totally towards gaining a personal advantage and there is no mutuality or harmony.  Anything which has no mutuality and no harmony if it is pursued will cause a divorce.  It will cause a fight.  It will cause whatever you want to call it.  Everything in life is mutual.  And everything is based on harmony, peace and tranquility.

And there’s a price for us.  It takes wisdom to remain harmonious.  What is wisdom?  I’ll tell you what works.  When you are finding that something is getting out of hand and is not harmonious, immediately put yourself in the other person’s position.  Shift the poles.  You will always come out perfect." – SSS Harbhajan Singh Khalsa ( From the 1995 Khalsa Women in Training Camp Notes)
