Trouble / problem makers?

Most untrained egoistic minds have trouble / problem making tendency. Either they create unnecessary troubles / problems for themselves and/or for others, whether intentionally or unintentionally.

Yoga practitioners who are looking for peace in oneself and wishing for peace in the world, must develop self-awareness towards the troubles / problems making tendency in the mind and do our best not to be trouble / problem makers, or at least, minimize generating unnecessary trouble or problem for oneself and/or for others.

One who is still struggling on the path of self-inquiry should stay away from trouble / problem makers as much as possible, to avoid getting involve with unnecessary troubles or problems, unwittingly.

The world is full of untrained egoistic minds. Minds that are well-cultured, religious, spiritual, well-educated, literate, knowledgeable, intelligent, passionate, ambitious and righteous, are not necessarily be free from ignorance, egoism, attachment, identification, desires of craving and aversion, and impurities. The minds might still be under the influence of anger, hatred, jealousy, greed, pride, arrogance, dissatisfaction, disappointment, irritation, frustration, agitation, depression, ill-will, animosity, offensiveness, defensiveness, self-righteousness, fear and worry, to act and react.

Righteous prideful egoistic minds love to be trouble / problem solvers. If one knows how to stop generate troubles or problems, there's no trouble or problem that needs to be solved. Trouble or problem solvers are unnecessary.

Focus on self-evolution instead of trying to transform the world to be the way that we think it should be. The world will be peaceful as it is, if everyone knows how to transcend the ignorance and egoism in oneself.

Om shanti.
