Ego needs applause

 

We say we want to share
But our ego is tricky
Wants to be heard and seen
Needs you, wherever you are

We fly in lies
Cheat ourselves
Are identified
With the mind

Our good words and deeds
Need ears and eyes
To caress our ego
To be proud

Silence has no witness
A way to overcome
Separation, illusion
A vortex without an echo

False expectations

Praise is sometimes expressed
For reasons we neither expect nor see
The same is true when giving/receiving Likes

Praise and Pride

Just because we are excellent in one field
This does not mean we are familiar with all disciplines
However, we often act as if we would be
Thus we deceive ourselves and our fellow human beings.

In this way, we are carried away
In a torrent of arrogance

Are open to praises
Equally averse to criticism

Addicted to being acknowledged…

Praise and Criticism

 

 

The praise one has received
Is like a medal at the breast
It bears the name:
Give me something in return…

The criticism one has received
Is like an attached promissory note
It bears the name:
I give you something in return…
