THE WAY FORWARD - THE SIXTH PRINCIPLE

Verse 6

When someone whom I have helped or in whom I have placed great hopes, mistreats me in extremely hurtful ways, may I regard him still as my precious teacher.

Basically it is impossible for us to practice real love, peace and compassion unless there are people who are displeasing to us. Those people are precious because they give us the opportunity to learn to be a better human being.
