What To Be Proud Of On The Path To The Creator

962.6Question: It is written: “Anyone who is proud, says the Creator, ‘He and I cannot dwell in the same abode.’” That is, the Creator says that where there is pride, there can be no light. What is this about?

Answer: Pride is a very special feeling when a person evaluates himself in relation to the environment, but, in principle, in relation to the Creator. He believes that he can point something out, control something, influence the Creator.

This also manifests in relation to people but in a different way. I may seem proud to them, but in reality, I am trying to help them, to prevent some misfortune, so I point it out, I put pressure on them. Thus, these situations must be considered specifically for each individual case.

And there can be no pride in relation to the Creator. On the contrary, it is necessary to annul yourself in order to receive all the greater spiritual properties from Him. Only the lowest receives from the highest.

At the same time, you can be proud, but it depends of what. For the fact that you are constantly working on annulling before the Creator in order to receive from Him because only in this way can you give Him pleasure.
