To perceive and to use the power of enlightened vision you need to restraint other parts of your social anthropological self. When an undefined ego resembles a matured human, chaos takes charge of your thoughts and implosion happens.
That’s because the time to listen to the construction sounds of the deeper parts of you are not quite quiet enough and you’re still enforcing that status onto your life.
Nevertheless the only thing to do when you need to advance is to swallow. Swallow it all like you have an urge to swallow yourself outside in and swallow. Swallow the hot expelled liquid of your own desires and taste the youthness or dumbness of your own thoughts. When you doubt why you’re doing it swallow an ever bigger load and when you think you’re strong enough and experienced swallow it all again.
Pride is just a way to put in perspective.
