Without others, we would have no chance at all to develop beyond ego. So the idea here is to feel grateful that others are presenting us with tremendous obstacles–even threats or challenges. The point it to appreciate that. Without them, we could not follow the path at all.
Walking on the path of dharma is connected with dealing with our neurosis. But if there were no neuros-ees, we couldn’t develop any neuros-is. Therefore, we should feel very grateful to such persons. They are actually the ones who are pushing us onto the path of dharma.
From “Be Grateful to Everyone,” from Training the Mind and Cultivating Loving-Kindness, page 50
