I practice this every day, every moment, every negative situation/comment/person I encounter, I try to allow nothing to upset me, disturb me, or rock my inner-joy. If I’m easily disturbed by others, that’s mental slavery; therefore, my happiness will be dictated by external circumstances, which is silly. The waves of life doesn’t bother the deep of the ocean. I’m not trying to become the ocean, transform into it, rather realizing through self-inquiry, reading books & watching videos by Mooji, Sadhguru, Eckart Tolle, Alan Watts, etc., that I already am the deep ocean but been conditioned to think I’m the waves. This isn’t trying to become an emotionless statue, but to have a mental shield that deflects negativity before reaching me.
