So as long as the mind is comparing, there is no love, and the mind is always judging, comparing, weighing, looking to find where the weakness is. So where there is comparison, there is no love. When the mother and father love their children, they do not compare them, they do not compare their child with another child; it is their child and they love their child. But you want to compare yourself with something better, with something nobler, with something richer, so you create in yourself a lack of love. You are always concerned with yourself in relationship to somebody else. As the mind becomes more and more comparative, more and more possessive, more and more depending, it creates a pattern in which it gets caught, so it cannot look at anything anew, afresh.
And so it destroys that very thing, that very perfume of life, which is love.

Trying to relieve my mind of problematic scenarios, but in the process, more have been created. A vicious circle with seemingly no escape. Cyclic thoughts like these will pose as a major hindrance to my being if they persist. They’re disdainfully strong, these thoughts. Difficult to produce a solution at the moment.
Perhaps tea will calm the nerves.
