Part of this existence is accepting duality. People are disappointed because they expect too much.

Suppose you go to an old friend that you have supported and helped for years when they needed help. They recover, and financially are in a position to help you.  You need help and ask them to lend you $5,000 dollars but they will not do it. You become angry because they were from a poor family and you helped them become financially solvent.

That is the way life is. Love the person as being part of yourself. You should love a person as though they are yourself. We should love another as our own self. There is no need for grief or sorrow. As long as we are identified with likes and dislikes we will experience pain. When you step aside you will be able to accept. We want others to be in tune with us. But we will never be in tune with others.

We should be able to understand the nature of the objects of the world. Understanding them we will be able to go beyond them. A man visited a mental hospital and saw a patient who kept saying; 'Boon Boon' He asked the doctor about it and the doctor explained that Boon Boon was the name of the women who left him. He walked further through the hospital and came across another man who kept saying; 'Boon Boon' The man visiting the hospital asked the doctor why he was saying the same thing. The doctor explained; 'Because he is the man that was married to Boon Boon. So you see  if we get the objects of our desires or we do not we will still suffer.

there's a special, delicate touch to your expression here and i am feeling the words you wrote. beautiful
peace my friend

this story of boon boon is quite compelling... upon reading from hazarat inayat khan, he speaks of indifference- not in the sense you or i know it...
The Hindus call it Vairagya from which the term Vairagi has come. Vairagi means a person who has become indifferent; and yet indifference is not the word for it. It describes a person who has lost the value in his eyes of all that attracts the human being. It is no more attractive to him; it no more enslaves him. He may still be interested in all things of this life, but is not bound to them.

Perhaps Amma is this angelic-man described by Inayat Khan... I will elaborate in a separate post.
