: "To us our deeds, and to you yours; peace be to you: we seek not
: ignorant."
: -Qur'an, Al-Qasas, Surah 28:55
: You could always use the "big word technique"- simply
: out 'vocabulise' them with ultra chemistry words and description.
: Tell them in the upper New York climate washing it right off
: work as well becuase of a different effect on the gulf stream. Or,
: here in NY, the henna has to stay on the skin for longer because of
: the longitude. I mean, really, it's as rational as what they are
: telling you! Then there is lying: "my grandmother taught me this
: she said ..." but I can understand that might not be a karmically
: acceptable response. How about a simple "my teachers (insert
: acceptable foreign word translation here) in Morocco taught me
: (or our) tradition and that is..."
: I do know what all this is about though, just last night my friend,
: who makes and sells (beautiful!)jewelry was showing it to some
: after our bellydance class. Some younger girls came up (19 range,
: offense to anyone in that range, but these girls just typified the
: stereotypes eh) and were looking at the jewelry and contemplating
: matching sets of one piece and how well it would match their
: hallowe'en costumes. As they were discussing having M *make* them a
: second matching set to buy, the other girl pipes up with "hey, I
: I can get my mom to order us some beads since she does craft stuff
: and we could just make it ourselves at way less than that price." M
: was very buddha about this but I was aghast! I think it has to do
: with a: inferiority complex and b: attention getting. A is obvious,
: but b is because they want to share in your glory. Since they can't
: show off how superbly wonderous they are, they can only attempt to
: cut you down. Take their crude behaviour and turn it on its
: ear. "There's always a different way to do anything, but I've found
: this technique to give me the best results, like this..." and then
: whip out a stunning cherry burgundy black henna design on yourself,
: helper or a photo. Let your work show them that you do know what
: are doing. After all, it's *your* gig, they ain't got one!
: peace,
: txilar
: "The one who thinks himself equal or inferior or superior to others
: is, by that very reason, involved in argument. But such thoughts as
: equal, inferior, and superior are not there in the one who is not
: moved by such measurements."
: -Sutta Nipata
: : What is going on in their heads?
