one woman's quest to live the life she's imagined all while daring you to do the same

Two Sides of Arrogance

Seth Godin posted this the other day:

Do you care enough to believe in things that seem unreasonable?

Do you believe in…

your people,

your project,

your endeavor so deeply that others find your belief arrogant now and then?

If your standard is to never be called arrogant, you’ve probably walked away from your calling.

That same day I was reading from A Course in Miracles on arrogance.

Let us not fight our function. We did not establish it. It is not our idea. The means are given us by which it will be perfectly accomplished. All that we are asked to do is to accept our part in genuine humility and not deny with self-deceiving arrogance that we are worthy. What is given us to do we have the strength to do.

The arrogant must cling to words, afraid to go beyond them to experience which might affront their stance. Yet are the humble free to hear the Voice which tells them what they are and what to do.

From these two perspectives, you’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t, as they say.

I don’t know about you, but I’d rather piss off a few people by doing, than piss off the Big G by not.

I leave you with this: Here’s to being arrogant enough to accept your greatness!
