Aphorisms by Howard Salzman No. 6

Beware of the smile of self-righteousness
for it is one of contempt
and the slightest provocation
will consume you with hate.

When you judge another
you will reinforce their flaws
when you listen
you will allow them
to judge themselves.

You cannot fly with the angels
if your wings are bound together by ego.

When you see the light
you may still remain in the darkness;
it depends on how comfortable
you are in the darkness.

What is inexplicable for the moment
is revealed in the greater scheme of things.

If there is no ego
then there is nothing to defend
and nothing that can be offended.

Speak Your Mind
