BECOME AN ANT
"To think of becoming an elephant is no good, because an elephant eats the branches of trees. Become an ant, and you will get sugar candy!
"In the world, everyone wants to become an elephant. Greed for power, selfishness, jealousy, hatred, ambition, pride, different desires, take the shape of an elephant. You want to become big, you want respect, you want people to praise you, go after you, etc.
"You feel very happy.
"Whatever you achieve is just binding you. But if you crush your desires, and become like an ant, you will get sugar candy. That means you will have Divine Love, which is pure, and you will become pure. You will be free from all desires, like an ant that is free from pride."
