I thought I was right to be angry with employees who did not do things the right way or were not hardworking. That’s because in my mind, I thought my values of conducting myself in human society were correct.” When she put her mind to eliminating this attachment, she felt Master helped her. “I clearly felt Master remove a huge material substance.
