Set yourself free

blaming_myself_by_sana981969-d54f9ai

Often we can’t love ourselves or others fully when we’re stuck in our own complexes.

When you have an inferiority complex, you have low self-esteem, and this is a kind of sickness.

High self-esteem is also a sickness, because you consider yourself to be above others and that causes suffering as well.

Although equality is something good, it can also be a complex.

When you say, “I’m as good as he is,” you still think you have a separate self.

When you compare two selves to each other, suffering will result. 

Real liberty is freedom from all these complexes.
