Legitimate Use Of Pride Energy

For the esoteric student the energy of pride needs to be understood and applied correctly to create a life, which will lead to inner peace. The failure to make the conscious choice to become the white magician or creative manipulator in life results in the default state, which is the black magician. Every path in life whether chosen consciously or unconsciously will lead to inevitable natural consequences according to the choices.

In order to navigate with pride energy correctly we need to discuss boundaries, which will supply a framework or basis from where we may discriminate our choices. This journey to understand pride energy first started when a son asked his father about this subject. In every case where a person asks a question, he then needs to face the answer. In order to answer any question correctly begins with the question “Why”, which invokes the light the great revealer.

A child is born and cared for by its parents until it is old enough to live independently. During the child’s development period his parents have responsibility for him, which means that they also have control of him. This is because where the responsibility is there also is the control. How can anyone be responsible for something over which he has no control? When a child takes control over the pattern of his life he also assumes responsibility for his life as well aware or not. True responsibility means living independently in your energy and is not the false state of living on welfare from any source.

Wise parents boundaries supply and enforce fair and equal boundaries, which will lead to the child developing within a spiritual framework. To have a boundary which is not enforced is worse than no boundary at all. Essentially this is a process of restricting egotistical characteristics to encourage and cultivate soul qualities. This process leads to the child developing the legitimate use of pride energy within by learning to control their own lower personality nature and thereby expressing more soul qualities instead. Soul pride is the legitimate use of pride energy because it is selfless.

In the case of unwise parents where boundaries are either not set or set but then not enforced will lead to the cultivation of a child with egotistical or selfish behaviors. This child learns to cultivate pride energy in its own ego through successfully breaking and manipulating boundaries or laws to suit its own purpose, which is the path of the criminal. This person is basically selfish and self focused. Ego pride is an example for the illegitimate use of pride energy because it is selfish in nature.

Now the former child is an adult with strongly developed ego pride asking his father for love and peace. His father says no I will only give to you love and light. If you wish peace then your only possibility is to create this within your self. While you live your life in a way, which cultivates your ego pride then you will never know real peace. Soul pride is the only pathway to inner peace.

This leads us to the question how does anyone find the awareness for their own particular ego/soul composition with its expression in reactive or responsive behaviour patterns? No one will ever find this awareness clearly with counseling in any form because counseling only works with the surface levels of the mind. There is only one way to discover the contents of the deepest levels of the mind and that is with Insight meditation practice.
