Silencing Self

The "Self" family has many members. Some are aggressive and domineering: self-will, self-righteousness, self-justification, self-aggrandizement. Some are weak and undermining: self-pity, self-condemnation, self-consciousness. Some are subtly sinister: self-satisfaction, self-deception, and self-mesmerism.

A few members of the "Self" family appear desirable, such as self-control, self-reliance, self-respect, and self-completeness. However, if these rest on a mortal and material sense of self, they can never compare with the higher goals of divine control, of reliance on God, respect for Truth, completeness in God.
