There is evidently two types of pride. There is the generous, gregarious and happy pride and there is the hurt, dark and paranoid pride.

I feel pride for the world and the human race. Other times I feel cold, distant and suspicious.

It is a matter of whether your pride is in the name of love or not.

It is flower essence preserved in alcohol. Like the Bach Flower Remedies.

I have found a flower remedy which helps heal spiritual pride - I am going to try it.

I try to be humble. But somehow I cannot achieve it.
Tu me, humility could be acknowledging that I can be wrong.

As a general comment, not knowing the circumstances that led you to think that you're "guilty of spiritual pride", it is possible that you could work on your "sin" by acknowledging that you might be (somewhat) wrong in your spiritual beliefs, and by keeping an open mind.

I only see it as 1 kind of pride . If someone sees it as good or as bad simply depends on if you are for them or against them .

Now pride can lead to other things such as ignorance and arrogance but it can also lead to victory and abundance.
There are endless outcomes to it but in the end only your enemies condemn your pride

"Exaggerated self-esteem is called 'pride' " like in "Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austen.

Reminded me of a class room scene in the film Wild. Said about this poster "I see that poster everywhere and I ****ing hate it, why would you ever want to teach a child that they don't matter"


On the other hand, if I look at the larger universe, all the other galaxies are flying away from me in all directions and I am at the center. That pretty much puts me a the center of the universe, I'm so proud. Do you think all those other galaxies are speeding away because they are afraid of me?

Well now, the definition that matters in regards to your question is the one that defines your spiritual pride.
You don't need to respond, I was just curious anyway.
