“Never try to force anyone to accept spiritual truth.” No one, absolutely no one will permanently accept anything forced upon them. Long experience demonstrates they will go along for a time but as soon as the opportunity presents itself to escape, they will. Spiritual Pride clothed in self-righteousness has driven many to attempt to control others, for their own good of course, and it is a powerful aphrodisiac.
Remember, self-righteous is the opposite of being righteous before God. The righteous individual embodies humility, the self-righteous is holier-than-thou. The righteous, loving, caring, and considerate. The self-righteous, angry, preachy, self-satisfied and quite “proud” of themselves. As children of the Most High we strive to be righteous but stand guard over the issues of our Heart to avoid the alluring trap of becoming self-righteous spiritual tyrants.
The sands of time are littered with those who began with right motives, who then fell victim to self-righteousness. They forgot the base reality that all are equal in the eyes of the Miraculous, the ultimate demonstration in truth our practice of Divine Love toward all, regardless of their station or how they may offend. So, we do not preach at anyone, but demonstrate humility, patience, tolerance and above all Love in our actions, standing ready to be of service while avoiding answering the unasked questions,becoming the embodiment of attraction rather than promotion.
