Thank you for sending me the beautiful healing olive oil. I absolutely love the fragrance and rich texture I have to say that when I received your letter with your reading of my photo I was initially surprised by what you wrote. I had seen another one of your letters to an ‘M’ and assumed that it was me - that letter definitely gelled with my self-perception… The one addressed to me, however, that I received in the mail, I thought it might have been meant for someone else. Not that it was completely off but you mentioned that I was a ‘difficult’ person to be around and needed to be more aware of those less fortunate than myself and I have always had a very strong sense of social justice and work with marginalized people. But, I do believe that there is room for improvement sure.
Since using the oil I have been feeling well and less wishy-washy about what I want in life… I feel like I am making more skillful choices. I had also been pondering pursuing more education but was not entirely sure about which path to take. I then attended a retreat and found out about an opportunity that immediately appealed to me. I have applied and will find out in March if I am accepted. Whether I am or not, though, I do know now what is a priority for me Thank you again for the oil Shlomo and I will keep you posted
First I want to thank you for taking the time to write this feedback.
The whole issue of reality is probably the most complex phenomenon of our existence, in addition, reality is “relative”, just like time; five people may be presented with the same reality but each one will experience it differently. We all make assumptions according to our own minds and feelings. So back to your feedback; there are two issues you brought up: Being difficult to deal with (not “difficult to be around”, big difference) and paying attention to the less fortunate. Having "a very strong sense of social justice and work with marginalized people” is not what I meant; I meant on a PERSONAL level, one on one. The fact that somebody takes a strong stand for social justice, and, say, fights for free housing for the homeless, does not mean that they are willing to let a homeless person, on a cold night, into their home… and the meaning of "difficult person to deal with”, in my letter, means that you are strong minded and not very flexible, so negotiating with you would be hard because your logic will prevail. And yes, I think that you will be accepted in March Shlomo
