“Anyone can understand what is spread all over the body: it is consciousness. Everyone is conscious of the pains and pleasures of the body in part or as a whole. This spreading of consciousness is limited within one’s own body. The pains and pleasures of one body are unknown to another. Therefore, each and every body is the embodiment of an individual soul, and the symptom of the soul’s presence is perceived as individual consciousness.” (Shrila Prabhupada, Bhagavad-gita, 2.17 Purport)
Friend1: Do you ever feel misunderstood?
Friend2: Only when I’m talking to you.
Friend1: Very funny. I’m serious.
Friend2: Do you mean in general or from time to time?
Friend1: The latter. Especially if it’s something important that you want people to understand.
Friend2: Oh, of course. I think everyone has that issue to some degree. Why do you ask? Did something happen?
