“Pride obscures God. If you would obtain heavenly help, put away your pride; every hair of pride shuts off saving light, as it were, by a great cloud.” [UB 1451:03]
Thought Adjuster: “If you only knew how luminescent your soul is by nature! It is your inner sun. Those with a pure soul exude vibrancy and zest for life.
“On the other hand, pride acts like a sticky film applied to the window panes of your soul. Not only does it prevent the ambient light from piercing through it, but the lack of ventilation due to the hermetically closed windows smother your soul’s goodwill flame.
“How could you see God when you turn your back to Him? How could you hear His gentle leading when you stubbornly cover your ears with the earbuds of pride?
“By preventing the light of God from accessing your inner world, you are isolating yourself in an underworld of darkness, thus becoming vulnerable. Moreover, your narcissism deters others from befriending you. Don’t you see? Even pride is not your friend.”
