Eckhart Tolle (via purplebuddhaproject
"There may come a time, when people close to you will challenge you. Maybe you are experiencing the greatest peace you have ever experienced in your life, but still they are worried for you. You are happy and they are not, but still they are worried for you. They even meet together to discuss what is happening to you. You are happy, but they say that maybe you need to see a psychotherapist, because to them you don’t seem to be your old self, the one they project you to be. No one will understand you, not even the priests, because inside you don’t belong to anybody. So you have to be strong inside so that even if the whole world should reject you, you will say: ‘Thank you, this is fine, but you can never know me.’ Bless them with love and continue walking in the light of your own way."
