Becoming nobody from being somebody – Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Becoming nobody from being somebody.

I want to be somebody important. Many people are stuck here.

Even teachers get stuck here. If you don’t give them a proper seat, it pushes their button. No matter that they might have won everything else over, but they will become attached to the seat, to their position. This is getting stuck in being somebody.

What difference does it make if I sit on the sofa or if I sit there out on the carpet? It does not make any difference! I remain what I am.

You get stuck being somebody. Either: I am too special or I am hopeless or I am nasty, I am useless or I am no good. This is also being somebody. Therefore being nobody is the thing. Going from being somebody to being nobody is the first step.
– Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
