Why does complete discovery
of the Self take so long?
Perhaps because of arrogance.
Arrogance can emerge in such subtle ways,
maybe like, ‘I have finally done it!'
'Now that I am free, I can do pretty much
whatever I want. Nothing can touch me.’
'I just want to save everyone in the world.'
'Lord, thank you for making me so humble.’
In innumerable ways he can come.
And this arrogance is a poison.
It was said in the biblical scriptures
that Satan himself was of the heavenly kingdom
and was driven out because of his arrogance.
Arrogance brings in separation from the Oneness.
Yet we must never think that we are free of arrogance.
This is one of the ways to start transcending him.
In fact, freedom means to be free of arrogance.
