praise / accolade / acknowledgment


< Clarity 4 > Some of you feed yourself through accolades from others, from others who praise you for being a grand being, praise you for being a loving and wonderful human being. You need that food from the outside, those who tell you how awesome you, how they've never met such an incredible human before. Some of you feed yourself that way. Again, there's no judgment. I love doing that (some laughter). But, I would have to say that at a certain point you get balanced enough to know that this is just flattery. Flattery is an energy. And, it comes into you. And, you can chuckle at it, and you can also change it so it doesn't - how to say - explode you from the ego. You literally can change any of these feeding energies.

< Clarity 4 > But, some of you do that. It is a fun thing to do, unless you get caught up in it, unless you get so addicted to that energy of having to receive praise and thanks and acknowledgment from others that you have to continue seeking it out. Well, then you start creating a reality where you are always on your "white horse," always having to save and help others. Why? Well, not for the sake of saving and helping others! You're doing it to feed off of that energy and have everybody tell you how wonderful you are. And, again we find it incredibly delightful… if you don't take yourself too serious about it.
