Guruji's Knowledge Sheet: Drop Your Self Image

Kashyap : "How do you make everyone happy?"
Sri Sri : "Become me."
Rama : "How do we become you?"

Sri Sri: What stands between you and me is your self image. Your self image restricts you from being me. Self image whether good or bad causes misery.

When you think good about yourself in a very subtle manner you think bad about others. Then anger, jealousy, hatred - everything follows.

When you think bad about yourself you feel low and again you start getting angry and you hate everyone else. If you think good about yourself you are in trouble and when you think bad about yourself you are in greater trouble.

So drop your self image.

|| Jai Guru Dev ||

SUTRA:“When your mind is not complaining, responsible, courageous, confident and hollow and empty you are inexplicably beautiful.”- Sri Sri

A Must Read For All Of Us In The AOL
Michael Fishman's book, Stumbling into Infinity, is a definite must
read for all of us seekers. Michael, President of Art of Living USA,
bares his soul and speaks about his own personal journey to find God
and his purpose in life and Sri Sri's role in shaping the person he is
today. He does not offer himself to any of us as a perfected soul but
one who is constantly evaluating himself and adjusting to getting his
perception, observation and expression right. He was blunt on the
criticisms of himself by his peers and even Guruji's and achingly
tells of how his own personal desires warred with his desire to serve
Sri Sri and his humiliating experiences.

Guruji's unconditional love and care for Michael and each of us is
conveyed so beautifully in his messages in this book. Intensely
beautiful with so much love that it is unbelievable. I found Michael's
recount intensely emotional and wrenching while there are moments when the hilarity stuns. Michael has fulfilled Guruji's wish to have his
experiences written to benefit others and it could not have come at a
better moment in my own personal journey. I look forward to part 2 of
this book which may not come for many more years when Michael fully
understands the journey he has been on. But the best part of this is
Michael does not offer himself to any of us as a perfect Teacher or
perfect human being. There is so much each of us can learn from this
book. I would recommend this to everyone. Here is the URL....the price
has just gone up....
