87. Listening first him, who knows you best, in the good sense: Yourself in self-esteem.
There come times that are as if we have forgotten who we really are, as far as beliefs about the world and ourselves, feelings, thought principles and deeper intentions are concerned. In such times we need to search for our real self again, and reassure who we really are. Often people resort to talking with friends or go to a psychotherapist or even just concentrate and meditate.
At such times we are vulnerable because we are open to believe what we will be told we are. And in society there are plenty many people, that are always ready and keen to bombard us with all kind of negative and undermining claims about who we are. Usually it is because they have a similar opinion about themselves (have short-sell them selves) and are eager to repeat the same for others, or even worse they want the others to be believe and be worse than themselves so that they are secretly glad they are superior. Avoid such people. Maybe you want to find some good friends that they have good opinion and beliefs about you, and reassure you. Still this is not always easy, and maybe such friends are old, and not easy to find anymore. But let us not forget: There is always a good friend with good opinions and beliefs about you who is already present. It is yourself in past better times and especially in times of good self-esteem. It is him that you must remember and listen again. Do some meditation vision yourself in past situations of good self-esteem, and "talk"with him, or be identified again with him.
Peace of mind , planetary prosperity and happiness comes also when we feel that we accomplish gradually our true goals. And there minor and major goals in life. We might say that our existence has no other goal than to exist. Or that we may have many different goals, according to the scale of relevance in our existence. But one of the most beautiful and meaning goals in life is to develop more of our soul consciousness. So all other minor goals like social success, money, fame, knowledge , creativity etc are to serve this major goal of developing more of our soul consciousness
