Beautiful in Itself

Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

We have an innate propensity to seek glory and praise. It is human nature to desire being liked and admired. Recognition to some extent is part and parcel of a healthy self-esteem.

The spiritual practitioner, however, transcends the need for recognition.

The spiritual journey is the relinquishment of the small self for the evolution of the higher self. A higher self that is impermeable and unshaken whether ignored or noticed, admired or criticized.

Remember praise is not part of the journey. We must know our own worth. Realize our value has its end itself. It cannot be taken away or diminished without our consent.

Agathos Kai Sophos
