This really isn't going to be long just a thought....
"Some people are overqualified. Therefore, God cannot appoint them.
Pride can befriend only those who are short in their inner heights and inner depths.
A man of pride is an "I" specialist. A man of humility is an "I" perfectionist.
Preference and indifference are the obverse and reverse of the pride-coin.
You are admiring yourself to such an extent that you have made it clear that you do not need even God's Admiration.
You are full of yourself. Poor God sincerely tells the whole world that His Heart is too small for you.
Your excessive love of yourself destroys you not only beyond your realisation but also far beyond your imagination.
Your body is proud of its simplicity. Your vital is proud of its vitality. Your mind is proud of its majesty. Your heart is proud of its humility. Your soul is proud of its luminosity. And finally, your God is proud of His unity in multiplicity."
-Sri Chinmoy Library
I read that today and couldn't help but think to myself that too many of us show a ton of pride but not enough humility. A lot of us in fact don't know how to be humble and only know how to be prideful, but in the end that pride will not lead you to success What do you think?????????....I leave you with this...
"I assure you, If you think you have A number one enemy,Then it is your pride And nothing else."
- Sri Chinmoy
