I'm the best! I'm the worst!
Food for thought: There exists a saying: "Never compare yourself to another person as you will either feel superior or inferior." (or something like that.) I found this on another site, a forum on philosophy: "Now why is there any comparison at all? Why do you compare yourself with another? This comparison has been taught from childhood. In every school A is compared with B, and A destroys himself in order to be like B. When you do not compare at all, when there is no ideal, no opposite, no factor of duality, when you no longer struggle to be different from what you are—what has happened to your mind? Your mind has ceased to create the opposite and has become highly intelligent, highly sensitive, capable of immense passion, because effort is a dissipation of passion—passion which is vital energy—and you cannot do anything without passion.
If you do not compare yourself with another you will be what you are. Through comparison you hope to evolve, to grow, to become more intelligent, more beautiful. But will you? The fact is what you are, and by comparing you are fragmenting the fact which is a waste of energy. To see what you actually are without any comparison gives you tremendous energy to look. When you can look at yourself without comparison you are beyond comparison, which does not mean that the mind is stagnant with contentment. So we see in essence how the mind wastes energy which is so necessary to understand the totality of life."
This is all a round about way of saying that I often find Drawger depressing. Somebody is always doing something more fantastic than you are, more on the ball than you are. Maybe I will depress another some day? So is it the mindset itself that is wrong and not Drawger? Any thoughts?
