Full Blossom Pride

November 2, 2011

Real pride is called vajra pride, or indestructible pride, in the tantric tradition. Such genuine pride comes from facing the reality of one's nature. It is not a question of becoming what one would like to be, but rather of bringing one's actual energies to full blossom. The confused ego pride is the indulgence of wishful thinking: it is trying to become something else rather than being willing to be what one is.

From The Dawn of Tantra, page 81.
