Losing shit when some one fails to commit to their word or actions is my biggest frustration. I still have not mastered the yogic art of forgiveness, ahimsa and tolerance for this punitive crime.
I have little problems with people denying upfront but dilly dallying as a way of work or life is totally unacceptable. I have probably been raised in a way that I find it extremely outrageous to go against my own words. I commit to that and stick to that, even at the cost of my inconvenience. My theory is always, to never inconvenience the other person. On some occasions, when I fall short of some expectations, I express heart felt regret and try and do better.
Maybe the so called etiquettes that are taught in school should be replaced by a moral code of ethics for all, irrespective of whether they are atheists, secular or spiritual, whether they are followers or Santana dharma or not. This compulsory moral code, also a part of yoga is sacrosanct for a good existence. I do not understand how people can remain happy by wilfully neglecting their rightful duties at proper times.
Two things are important here, first and foremost is the intent of the person and the other is the time in which the stipulated work should be done. Work done with contempt or doing anything later after the due date also takes the merit away.
Well it is late at night, and I should cut my rant short and go to to blissful sleep knowing that I have done and will do my duties diligently always and forever.
