The best way to increase self-esteem is to understand the meaning of the biblical metaphor about the poor in spirit. The entrance to the Kingdom of heaven is through the eye of a needle. You don't need to fill your Ego with the material world entities.
The way to heaven is through the eye of a needle, whereas hell is for those who sit on the tip of a needle. Here it is either an Achilles heel to stand on the needle, waving your hands and trying to hold as much material as possible, or to humble your pride and do a useful job.
About the most inopportune times, you should always keep in mind the metaphor of the needle's eye, through which the path to Paradise goes. A small hope is enough to succeed, too much will be superfluous.
Starting a business at the most inopportune and unfortunate moment is a good idea, because less is more. The path to Paradise leads through the eye of a needle. It doesn't take much to start a good business. With care, find a small thread and follow it to find the way to Paradise.
If you drive more quietly, you will go further, because the way to Paradise leads through the eye of a needle. You need a thin, time-stretched thread of actions. Thousands of little things to do. Paradise comes from a grain, the grain is very small and grows slowly.
The problem of pride is a gigantomania in the initial stages of the path, which it doesn't fit in the eye of a needle at all. You should realize the gigantic idea as a metaphor for the carpet, and your current small actions as a thin thread inserted into the eye of a needle.
The metaphor of the shepherd and the sheep of God is beautiful. A RAM is a person whose resource is wool. Metaphorically, this is the time. God the shepherd shears sheep, taking their time, and weaves a fine thread from it, and, having passed it through the eye of a needle, weaves the fabric of reality. A thin thread is a small daily act, an act of faith. The canvas of reality is the promised Kingdom.
The path to Paradise leads through the eye of a needle, so you should not suffer from gigantomania, but look for a thin thread, pulling which you can insert it into the needle. By the way, you are the needle. Your task is to weave the fabric of reality and create a Paradise.
The meaning of the incredible ease of being is that there is a lot of everything and this is called pride. If pride is subdued, that is, any multitude is restrained, then it will turn into love, the main treasure of this world. To get to Paradise, you need to take the fleece of a RAM and, twisting it into a thin thread, thread it through the eye of a needle.
