Blessed2 Posted September 5, 2022 Share Posted September 5, 2022 So in the past few days there has been a couple of instances where a wanting to be right, "prove others wrong" or start an argument has come up. All has been on the internet. I see people talking about their beliefs and opinions... Some talk about objective morality, some about science and rationality, politics... And when I see it, there is this burning feeling of wanting to start arguing with them and explain how they're mistaken. It's really just egoic nonsense. I don't really know what I'm talking about, and I find far more peace in not knowing or identifying with 'the knower' etc. All those thoughts/beliefs/arguments that come up are just passing and none of them hold any actual stuff, they're just passing untangible thought-form. Though it can be quite hard to just let it go and not go along the burning feeling and wanting to argue. Wanting to be better, more intelligent, to show off. "I know this, I understand better than you, I've done this way longer than you have, I've gone deeper than you have..." Though I wonder if really I'd even like being better... Really would just have good time with people and feel good about myself, and feel the love and expansion, no need to push others down or show off... But the comparing and trying to be better and be admired somehow just comes so often... Almost constantly... I wonder where it comes from. Maybe it's due to believing I can't find happiness within, so I need others to make me happy, and believing I need to somehow win people to like and admire me...
