A big Difference

"Recall the kind of feeling you get when someone praises you, when you are approved, accepted, applauded.  And contrast that with the kind of feeling that arises whenithin you when you look at the sunset or the sunrise or Nature in general, or when you read a book or watch a movie that you thorougly enjoy.  Get the taste of this feeling and contrast it with the first, namely, the one that was generated within you when you were praised.  Understand that the first type of feeling comes from self-glorification, self-promotion.  It is a worldly feeling.  The second comes from self-fulfillment, a soul feeling."

Anthony DeMello
