To grow does not mean that you think too much of yourself – Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev

There is no point fighting desires and passions. Just educate your passions, educate your desires to flow in the right direction, that is all. You can never fight them. Fighting them will be futile, it will be a waste of life.
The bitterness of any experience is not in what has happened. The bitterness of any experience is in terms of how you have received it. What is very bitter for one person could be a blessing for another person.
To grow does not mean that you think too much of yourself. Growth is dissolution.
