Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. – Philippians 4:8
It’s a quagmire of ignorance where ego dominates. They measure you according to what you do, your pay cheque, house, car, and material possessions. Without these, you are nothing. “No self-esteem,” according to this old man. In fact, many of them think the same way. You are what you have!
Run away from them. Banish them away from your sight. They are non-existent. They don’t inspire.
Surround yourself with high energy-field. Seek what is beautiful; what is noble, what is of good rapport, what is excellent, what is admirable.
What is essential is invisible to the naked eye.
Seek peace, goodwill, humility, kindness, generosity, and love.
Apart from these things, nothing is of high value.
