As long as you are proud, you should not dream about the future, but should make decisions spontaneously and in an instant, then fearlessly follow them, no matter what. The fact is that the hopes of a proud man destroy reality and it is impossible to make plans for the future.
In order for your hopes for the future to come true, you need to live with reality and overcome your pride. The hopes of the proud are unrealistic, but if you attain humility, you will have power over the future.
Pride precedes falling, because pride likes to lie down... while life is movement. It is hard for a proud man to walk, he goes only to reach the goal and lie down. The meaning of being a proud man is not a movement or even a goal, but he likes to sleep, lie down, idleness and pleasure.
Pride precedes a fall, and it is not even that the greedy will stumble or fall into a pit. Everything is much more banal. Pride is a thirst pleasure. The proud man will climb into the hole and lie down to rest himself. The meaning of being a proud man is to lie down and sleep. Proud people love dreams.
The problem of pride is a gigantomania in the initial stages of the path, which it doesn't fit in the eye of a needle at all. You should realize the gigantic idea as a metaphor for the carpet, and your current small actions as a thin thread inserted into the eye of a needle.
The path to Paradise leads through the eye of a needle, so you should not suffer from gigantomania, but look for a thin thread, pulling which you can insert it into the needle. By the way, you are the needle. Your task is to weave the fabric of reality and create a Paradise.
What do you hope for? What are you praying for? Are you asking for your pride to be fed? Are you asking me to satisfy your lust for power and pleasure? Are you asking me to satisfy your bottomless hunger and insatiable fear?
When you push out hope and direct it at another person, you are left without a driving force. To keep yourself motivated and save yourself from agonizing expectations and procrastination, let go of your hope and forget about it. Imagine what you would do if there was no hope at all.
The hopes of pride look foolish and false enough. Empty, vain, and greedy hopes based on nothing. The problem with pride is its desire to make money out of thin air. Theoretically, this is possible if accompanied by courage and determination, but if the proud man himself is afraid of his greed, then procrastination will overcome him.
The danger of fantasies about the future, in view of the information nature of the world, lies in the fact that, in fact, these thoughts are already the realization of the future, and, having appeared, immediately pass into the category of the past, and nature does not like repetitions. Most likely, as it was in fantasy will be gone. On the other hand, do not confuse fantasy and planning. The nature of these phenomena is different.
Planning, a person thinks how to create the future and performs creative work. And fantasizing, he tries to share the skin of the unkillable bear, which, quite possibly, has very different plans for his skin.
The more desires a person manages to fulfil, the unhappier this person will become. It happens because every fulfilled desire gives way to a new bigger desire. Some day this new desire may become so huge and unrealizable that it will swallow the soul like some black hole after having put it into an ocean of pain.
The great man is perfect in the greatness of the spirit, but his desires are mundane and real. The little man is small in spirit, but his desires are huge and unreal, like a dwarf, he jumps in a vain attempt to reach the moon.
Frustration breeds frustration, because the energy is spent useless. To avoid frustration, you should carefully review the plans and understand that there is a positive result. The easiest way to overcome frustration, realizing that the very fact of movement is already a victory, the main thing-the process, not the result.
