Arhant Venerable Ajhan Cha encapsulates wisdom so nicely ,
"Having a sense of superiority
means to open the gates to conceit , pride and prejudice .
A sense of inferiority opens the gates to worthlessness and lassitude .
Seeing as equals , one closes the gates to reverence and humility .
An awakened person possesses none , but lives in the wisdom of here and now. "
The Path of Dhamma
The path of Dhamma is no picnic . It is a strenuous march steeply up the hill . If all the comrades desert you , Walk alone ! Walk alone ! with all the Thrill !!
