My first experience of feeling pride in my life is when I passed through the republic day over here. That is the real pride when I hold the national flag and waiving it off across the thousands of people, this is the real pride that we should feel. I have seen thousands of people doing this and feeling happy and pride to do it. But only one thing I could not be able to understand as what is their real root of enjoyment.
In fact pride is something that is socially encouraged. Pride is something that you self-imposed on yourself about anything like wealth, status, grades, appearance and behavior to name a few. Pride is a license to feel good. Be grateful to God who makes you feel pride in your life.
Generally speaking feeling good is not a bad thing however it comes with the time and is a combination of emotions at a cost that is collectively and spirituality. I would be grateful to God if he makes me feel pride on things that I have experienced and earned in my life like good knowledge, good life, spirituality and excellence in meditation.
There is no fun if you will have pride for things that are of no use like wealth, money, big home, car, bank balance etc. If someone will feel pride on these things than he/she believes in show off things that is a very bad thing. One should be grateful to God for all these things that God has given us in our life. God is the only one who makes us capable to earn these things in our life. If God is not helping us than we will not be able to earn anything in our life.
So each one of us should be grateful not prideful for everything we got in our life. We should feel pride in connection with God and Spirituality and this should be the motto of life.
