Anyone who gets proud because they believe they are ’In the Work’ is stupid! You can’t label yourself into sainthood or importance. If there is something there that you liked, that you found true, that you thought had value, and was ’workable’ - then work it! No one else basically gives a shit.That’s between you and what you think is true - and that’s your business! Anyone with good-will would of course wish you the best - to say the least. But don’t you slip into making an ’impression’ on anybody - like some Jews want to make an impression, I don’t know on whom - on the ‘goyim’? “We are proud Jews!” Oh yes! They have no idea what they are talking about.

If you remain ’in pride’, there is no way you can stop getting sucked dry. People stay proud because they insist on being somebody! To feel ’somebody’ you’ve got to convince yourself that you know certain things, for sure! If that illusion doesn’t fade, you will continue to live in your false and painful, imaginary sense of ’I’.
But never mind: ”I’ll do my yoga, Tai-Chi, maybe I’ll go to a healer”. But the twisted vibrations, within the illusion, will resurface, in the lie!
Don’t be little children - be as ’innocent of evil’, as little children. That would be dropping your subjective judgments, your ’knowing’, your PRIDE.
