Throughout life, from childhood, from school until we die, we are taught to compare ourselves with another. 
SELF-WORTH
Yet when I compare myself with another I AM DESTROYING MYSELF.

In an ordinary school where there are a lot of boys, when one boy is compared to another who is very clever, who is the head of the class, WHAT IS ACTUALLY TAKING PLACE? 
Smartest
Brightest
Strongest
You are DESTROYING the boy. 
SELF-WORTH
That's what we are doing THROUGHOUT LIFE.

Now, can I live without comparison with anybody? 
This means there is no high, no low. There is not the one who is superior and the other who is inferior.

If I am always comparing myself with some saint or some teacher, some businessman, writer, poet and all the rest, what has happened to me…
…what have I done? 
SAINT Spiritual

I only compare in order to GAIN, in order to AHCIEVE, in order to BECOME. 
But when I don’t compare I am beginning to understand what I am. 
Beginning to understand what I am is far more fascinating, fare more interesting. It goes beyond all this stupid comparison. 
Self Knowledge
Meditation

Personal Liberation
To understand yourself is the beginning of wisdom.
