So, the first thing we should introspect – are we concerned about ourselves ?  All the time do we think that we are suffering, we have this problem, that problem, or this should be done, that should be done.  If the attention is on that, that all the time you are worried about yourself, then you cannot break, you cannot break through this shell of your being which is under the domination of your mental selfishness or self centeredness.
