Drop your self-image

Kashiap: How can we make everyone happy?
Sri Sri: Become me.
Rama: How do we become you?
What stands between you and me is your self-image. Your self-image restricts you from being me. Your self-image, whether good or bad, causes misery.
When you think good about yourself, in a subtle manner you think bad about others. Then feelings like anger, jealousy, and hatred follow.
When you think bad about yourself, you feel low, and again you start getting angry and hating everyone.
When you think good about yourself,
you are in trouble.
When you think bad about yourself,
you are in greater trouble!
So drop your self-image.
