When we constantly think, ‘self vs other,’ we pit ourselves against the world – and that makes it hard. We think it’s just our human nature, but it is not. It is the universal bad habit that gives rise to so much discontent in our personal lives and our world.

By using meditation to uproot the real cause of our own unhappiness we become of greater value to others, especially those we love and care about.

“Controlling our self-cherishing is of great value, even temporarily. All worries, anxiety and sadness are based on self-cherishing. The moment we let go of our obsessive concern for our own welfare, our mind naturally relaxes and becomes lighter.

On the other hand, if we fail to subdue ourself-cherishing, even the most petty things disturb us. If a friend criticizes us we immediately become upset, and the frustration of even our smallest wishes leaves us dejected.”
