TO LIVE WITHOUT COMPARISON
Date : 24 – 25 Nov 18
We all live in comparison, don’t we? We are always comparing, aren’t we? Both inwardly and outwardly. And this comparison breeds in me, not only fear, the sense of inferiority, the sense of wanting to be like him, imitation, conformity, acceptance, depending on what I think is much better than « what is »…
Is it from childhood we have been taught to compare? That’s one factor. All our social structure is based on that too. Our religious environment is based on that – you are nothing, you must be like a saint, this whole business is based on comparison. Why does my mind, your mind, compare?
