Letting Go Of Pride
Meditation Teacher & Author
This is the final session in a series of six releases on letting go of the six core emotional states (Apathy, Grief, Fear, Lust, Anger, and Pride). As we awaken, the ego can continue to co-opt the light we’ve discovered to prevent our full liberation. A rigid sense of pride may kick in as we start to feel ‘spiritually accomplished’ or superior to others. Arrogance is insidious because it can attach to other emotions as well; we may be prideful about our grief or righteous in our anger. The cosmic joke is that we are no more holy or special than anyone else. It is only the ego that would see this quiet redemption as lacking and try to drum up artificial excitement. Pride about how far we’ve come only keeps us stuck where we are.
