Pride and humility

One impoverishes you, the other enriches you

December 4th 2017
Proud people imagine they are dependent on nothing and no one, exactly like a light bulb which claims to be the source of light, forgetting that the power station supplies the current. Those who are humble, on the contrary, know that they are not an isolated being, that they are not independent, and that if they do not remain linked to heaven, they will have neither force, light nor wisdom. They sense that they are a link in an infinite chain, the conductor of a cosmic energy which comes from afar and flows through them to all other human beings. What consequences to these attitudes hold? Proud people forget the source of the currents which manifest through them; they believe they are dependent only upon themself, and sooner or later become a barren land. Humble people are like a valley irrigated by the water that descends from the peaks to fertilise the plains; they receive forces that pour forth constantly from the mountains and thus know abundance. We have not yet understood the wealth of humility.
