Ajahn Visuddhi talks about our unconscious hidden conceit and need to compete and defend our individuality, status, uniqueness, identity or self. As well as our inner need to conform and be the same. Ajahn also reflects on how we can have an insidious wish for others to fail so we don’t feel like failures. Why do we feel we must keep up with Jones’ and be equal to others? Finally how do we overcome this, so we can relax and just live in a friendly community?
