Man's worst enemy is pride; it is this self-important and arrogant attitude which leads him to his downfall
"Human beings do not seem to be aware that their attitude toward the divine world determines their destiny. Instead of bowing before the grandeur of God and glorifying Him, they are adopting increasingly careless and disrespectful behaviours which thwart His plans and introduce chaos in His creation. Man's worst enemy is pride; it is this self-important and arrogant attitude which leads him to his downfall. If he wants to save himself, he must learn to regard creation as sacred, to vibrate like the Aeolian harp with each breath of wind, with each current from heaven, to commune with the universe, with the Universal Soul and with the Cosmic Spirit. During this exchange, energies from the higher world work on him: elements of the greatest purity flow into his soul, while the dark elements leave and are absorbed in immensity."

No one can get rid of his pride by himself. It's in his blood. Only Jesus can heal from this (self-)destructing pride and will provide a holy pride focused on Him, followed by a godly joy, peace and a heart full of love.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 16066428


"The idea many people have of spiritual life is that they will meet a mage, an initiate, who will reveal sensational secrets to them, thanks to which they will be instantly transformed. It’s a pity, but such secrets do not exist. People can only be transformed through diligent, daily work on themselves.

If someone tells you, ‘Take this magic formula, this talisman, and you will be healthy (if you are ill), at peace (if you are anxious), strong (if you are weak)’, well, understand these are the lies of someone who wants to deceive you. On the other hand, a true initiate will tell you, ‘My children, everything is possible, but only if you make efforts, and, then, what you obtain will be so stable, no one will ever be able to take it away from you.’ Besides, you must know that whatever you obtain through magical processes – and it’s true, there are some that are quite effective – can never be permanent: a short while afterwards, you lose everything you thought you possessed. You can keep only what you have obtained from within, through personal effort; this is an absolute law."

But isn't it also pride that allows man to strive for better things, to advance the lives of others, and achieve a better life for ones self and ones loved ones?

Some people can't take a joke. Most of those people are on the internet.

"Man's worst enemy is pride; it is this self-important and arrogant attitude which leads him to his downfall".

It seems that many are eagerly waiting to judge other whom they know absolutely nothing about. Ignorance is almost always misconstrued as arrogance and one should always take a little pride in oneself and ones accomplishments for in this day and age almost no one else will.

I am not saying I speak for God, however I think he can tell the difference between pride, false pride, ignorance and arrogance.

just saying.
