On Pride

Pride is an obstacle to spiritual growth.  It is a manifestation of inaccurate perception and incorrect expression and shows a lack of self-esteem.  Use your heart and head.  Throw away your pride.  PRIDE is one of the last weaknesses to go.

The more intelligent a person is, the greater the possibility of a spiritual fall due to PRIDE.  Watch out for envious thoughts and envious actions.When you have pride you do not want others to be better than you are.  Watch out for these obstacles.

Eliminate pride by developing good self esteem.  If you want to learn, you need to have good self-esteem.

People with PRIDE always create problems in an organization and will try to grab power.

Weaknesses have layers like an onion.  They must be disintegrated again and again and again until they are replaced with right thoughts, right words, and right actions.
