As long as you take yourself too seriously and have too much dignity, you will be vulnerable and filled with suffering and take up all the happiness in your life.

Buddha taught:

Ego The bigger, the more honorable, the more vulnerable.

– Why is a straw or a piece of paper dropped from a high floor to the ground without it being damaged?

Because of its light weight!

But why is a bowl, an apple dropped from above broken, damaged?

It’s because its weight is too heavy, plus the gravity of the earth, it causes the collapse.

Likewise, living people know to take themselves lightly, when you think you are just a straw, no matter how life attacks you, the damage will be very small or even nonexistent.

But since you see yourself as the bowl, the great apple, you will be the most fragile. Before the storms of life, you are actually very fragile!

In the sutras Buddha taught like this:

– A mustard seed cannot be placed on the tip of a needle because the mustard seed is round.

The wind cannot cling to the net.

And a drop of water cannot stand on a lotus leaf.

As long as you take yourself too seriously and have too much dignity, you will be vulnerable and filled with suffering and take up all the happiness in your life.

– Remember, respecting yourself and being important to yourself are two completely different things.

The ego is too big to suffer on its own

Most of the sufferings and insecurities in everyone’s life come from ego outrageous.

Ego is accepting that there is an existing self

As long as you take yourself too seriously and have too much dignity, you will be vulnerable and filled with suffering and take up all the happiness in your life.

The person who has too much ego, who always considers himself the best, is not inferior to anyone or anything and despises the thoughts and words of others, regardless of whether he is right or wrong. unconsciously…

Actually, if you can imagine what your life goals are, that’s fine, but watch out, that kind of trying to shape your life the way you want it to will only make your ego bigger.

Just chasing after goals, goals in life can make you feel that the goal of life is to accomplish something in the future, making you forget that the only life you have is this life. in the now and not of the past and the future.

Take hold of the present. Don’t depend on it.

We need to respect the ego as it is the expression of our own individuality but, we must not worship it at all because when the ego is too big beyond other purposes it will cause you to fail and lose the things that are precious to you. Especially friendship.

“Please bow down as a coward

Free hands to beautify life

Love is everywhere

The heart is small, but heaven and earth embrace it.”
