Once when I was a young salesman, a customer gave me a counteroffer and I quickly said yes. The customer did not buy, as he felt that he might be overpaying for the product. When we ask for something and get exactly what we want, instantly, there is a fear that we did not make a good offer. My spiritual Masters offered me many things and I would instantly say, “Yes!” I understood the benefits. I was even offered by the Masters the gift of detachment from them. I knew the price if I said yes. It would be painful in the short term but I would be free from attachment to their physical forms. Today, I am not suffering, as some of them have left their bodies. They are now inside me, with me. A good and fair deal needs no time for a decision. Instead, I appreciate the person who is able to grasp the value right away. — Satish Daryanani
