Pride makes us very vulnerable and touchy. We admire the higher ones and suffer from their inattention. At the same time, despising the lower ones, we are terribly angry and offended by their irreverence or aggression. As a result, the proud man's thoughts are filled with resentment, pain, and fear.
The desire for control of the proud knows no limit. For a while, they succeed in this endeavor, but sooner or later, the situation gets out of control, and it breaks them. Demoralized, the proud begin to fall and slowly die. It is hard for the proud to lose control, but life is happy, because justice requires retribution.
Everything should be loved, including the enemy, for love is mindfulness and knowledge. If you don't notice the danger, if you don't know the danger, you will become very vulnerable. Vulnerability will create fear in you, fear of doubt. Doubt will destroy your faith and Rob you of your strength. If you lose your strength, you will destroy yourself with your own hands.
Escape from reality is the displacement of your problems, fears, and pain. Having pushed out of himself everything that he does not like, the person remains naked and defenseless in the world of his sweet illusions.
