Pride and Joy

Someone posted a video of a horse, freely running around an arena.

The note under the posting was: “My pride and joy strutting his stuff at the Welsh Nationals.

Not bad for a 15 year old…”

The horse was beautiful and it was good to see the joy, but what about pride?

The expression “My pride and joy”  was probably invented by Sir Walter Scott in his poem Rokeby (1813),

where he described children as “a mother’s pride, a father’s joy.”

It is commonly used, I heard it many times but there is a problem.

Pride is a drain of human energy and it is in the closest level of ego trying to pass as authentic.

It takes a bit of effort to see it.

I recently was attempting to explain to an American (US) friend that pride not only describes, but also creates a state of mind that can exist only

in a comparison with, and in the presence of others. Pride can exist as a position towards others, mine is better, and I will make sure that you know it!

When there are nothing to compare with and no one listening to you tooting your horn, there is no pride.

His question in tone was pointing how absurd is my thinking: “…so one can not be proud of his own country?”

Well, if you are proud it is only in comparison to the countries that are not as great as yours in your opinion. It means others more or less suck.

“No, they also can be proud.” Yes, if you remove from that pride “we are the greatest country on this planet” they might have a chance,

but, ups! Too late now. You are sold on believing in it and by saying it you are a part of an expansion, invasion and domination. All not authentic.

 

If you are authentic you can not be proud of body, because you comparing yourself with other bodies and one day you will loose.

You can not be proud of your children, because you can not compare them with other children because that’s not cool at all.

You can not be proud of your country, because if you compare it with other countries… big time!

If you see yourself as a whole, undivided (individual), you know that there is only one in the world like you, so unless you take yourself

apart and start comparing the pieces with the parts of others, then you can take the energy and blow that horn.

And you can do it only because others do not know better.

So now they do. It is a lack of class to use the energy of others to give yourself an energetic boost.

 

The table below also shows where joy is positioned.   At the level of 200 you are just starting to be an asset to the universal energy.

Below 200 you do not generate energy to sustain your life, you are a drain. Once in a while you will have a moment of any of states below 200, but I am talking about the stage of evolution, where your average is above 200 and if it is around 400 you are rocking. Humanity right now is drained by masses sitting way below 200 and pride would be the least of our problem, but still. I wanted you to know, because every opened mind counts.
