"If you yearn for holy felicity, shed your arrogance and become a seeker of hearts."
Arrogance is a scourge. It thinks it knows what it cannot possibly know. It struts and puffs and postures. It condescends. Arrogance passes itself to others in a look, a judgment, in scorn, and in an absolute lack of compassion. It sits above and feels superior.
But sitting above others, arrogance misses out on the warmth and camaraderie of being like everyone else- of being human, of being vulnerable, and of being able to relate to anyone and everyone and what they may be going through.
We all have moments of tending towards arrogance, but they are not our best moments. Let's be equal to others instead, and include ourselves among the masses.
I have unique gifts and talents to offer the world, but these do not make me better than anyone else. They simply make me me.
