One of the most important things in the world is to identify yourself with something higher. This is impossible without a deeper reflection within yourself, as otherwise, you are more likely to identify yourself with your outer circumstances i.e. by comparing yourself with the standards as well as the opinion of the society that you live in. However, this isn’t something stable, as the opinion and standard of the society change and most of the societies around the world are diametrically different from each other. This makes it very important to anchor our identity of ourselves with something that stays deep within us, as then and only then can we say stable in the face of external changes.
Quote; “Once we attain self-awareness, we stop becoming the victims of worthless comparisons, identity clashes and, of course, idle mindsets that make further progress impossible.” – Quote by Dr Prem Jagyasi
