901 – My Selfie, Self-image, my Self-Schemas

How do we perceive ourselves? We have forgotten that we went through 84,000 births to be a human. So why do we think that we are not perfect. I know one must be humble but one must not feel rejected. I came across jokes on dating sites in the New Yorker magazine. Now New Yorker magazine is read by cerebral persons and it is an amazing magazine. I love its articles, stories, jokes and poems. If one is published in this magazine, then one is recognized. Coming back to my original thought, I found the jokes funny but humiliating. They had a mean barb in it. They could lead to further undermining of one’s self esteem.

Why do we let social media make us lose our self-respect and dignity? Do we have to be apologetic for who we are and how we look?

A selfie is a self-taken photo. Do we want to look like our selfie? It is used for posting on social networks. Self-image is related to concept about yourself and how aware you are about yourself. Self-schemas are the beliefs that one has about oneself.

My title is including all three. The title relates to how we perceive ourselves and it is our internal image, thought free we must project.

There is no reality except the one contained within us. That is why so many people live such an unreal life. They take the images outside of them for reality and never allow the world within to assert itself. – Hermann Hesse

Hermann Hesse got the noble prize for literature. When he wrote Siddharth said that he wanted to cure his “sickness with life”. He accomplished this by immersing himself in Indian philosophy expounded in the Upanishads and the Bhagavad Gita.

Dear ones, look within yourselves, expel the thoughts which drag you down and balance your prana.
