My Comment: One who is always checking: Are you not bad; are you worse than others, etc.? This is an unhappy person. He does not rejoice in himself, but looks at everything only in comparison to others. Nothing good will come of it because we are all different.
It is possible to compare only if all my parameters coincide with all the parameters of another person and yet he is more successful than I am. But if we are different, then what is there to compare?
Let us assume that my parameters are worse in some way and the other person’s parameters are better in some way, or vice versa. Naturally, there will be differences. So what? In this case, they say: “Go to the craftsman who made me.” It does not depend on you.
Remark: Scientists claim that behind the desire to be good is caring for one’s own prestige.
My Comment: Naturally.
Remark: The one who is really worried about others will not waste valuable time to find out whether he is good or bad. He is simply not interested in it.
My Comment: Absolutely. Does he do it for the good of others or not?
Remark: It is stated here that he acts for his own good.
My Comment: So, it means that all this is vicious and nothing good will come of it in the end. One should only develop in the direction of a bigger benefit for others.
Question: What benefit does this bring a person?
Answer: That which he reveals to the Creator because there is no other good for people. Only to reveal the Creator to them.
What does it mean? To show them that there is a goal that must be achieved and help them in this. That is all, nothing more. Do not to think about yourself. It feels so comfortable, calm, and good.
Only when you think of others—a very good life. This is the most reliable, the best, and the most beneficial thing that a person can do—to help others reach the Creator.
This is the best state, when it does not matter what happens to you. The main thing is that you devote yourself to this craft.
