On Feeling Good

        If you feel good when you know that you look good to others in or out of clothes, have won honors and earned higher degrees, or possess good health and great wealth, then you must be a pretty vain person.  Whatever pleasure you derive from such satisfaction only feeds the ego and is therefore superficial and short-lived.  By contrast, the hidden joy you feel when you humbly serve the Lord is pure and deep, permanently affecting the soul.
