1. If someone gets hurt or affected by your mistakes, you should immediately do pratikraman in your mind and settle the matter. As long as the inner enemies of anger, pride, attachment and greed exist within you, you will continue to create new accounts. So in opposition to them, settle your karmic debts. If you make a mistake, without doubt you will create a new account,but you can erase it by instantly doing pratikraman. You should do the same, i.e. confess (aalochana), ask for forgiveness (pratikraman) and take a vow never to repeat the mistake (pratyakhyan), even if you are hurt by the mistakes of others.
2. You should be grateful from within whenever your faults manifest; only then will these faults cease to exist. If you feel hatred towards a policeman you should be grateful to him and the fault will cease. Consider the person that you find disagreeable your benefactor and you will no longer find him disagreeable. Each and every word I utter is like a medicine. All these are remedies; how else is anyone to understand the statement that you must be indebted to the person that calls you a thief! Take this as a command from Dada as it is of utmost benefit for you.
Questioner: If Dada himself is grateful to the other person, then what is wrong with us doing the same?
Dadashri: Yes, this is how you should look at it: Tell yourself that he is just calling you a thief and not devious or evil. It is good of him not to say anything else; after all it is his mouth and he can say whatever he wants. Do you have the right to stop him? You just have to feel grateful to him. By doing this you will not spoil your mind, and you will keep your peace. Do you understand? This is a principle! How is it so? If someone called me a thief, I would be grateful to him. Why so Dada? No one would say such a thing (call you 'A Thief') in the first place. All this is nothing but a result of your own projection, a result of whatever you yourself had uttered in your previous life. I give you absolute written assurance that this entire world is in the form of results of projections. That is why I am grateful and you should also feel the same. If you felt the same way, your mind will not be disturbed.
