Compare Yourself With Yourself Only
Next best, if you have to compare yourself with others, compare with those who are less fortunate than you. It works! I learnt years ago that pleasures in life can be very cheap as well as very expensive. With the correct mental attitude, everything can give pleasure. When I go home in the evening, I look forward to my cup of tea with three buttered toasts in my small air-conditioned room (Rishikesh). I shut my mind from the “bounties” of my friends who are better placed than me. A few years ago, I did not have an air conditioner. Now I have, so am enjoying this simple pleasure.
Now, when I watch TV, I feel how blessed I am. Many bad things are happening to even good people across the world. Floods, riots, market crash, violence and so on.
