It came from deep in his throat, and while it was unintentional, it wasn’t precisely a human noise.

The more doors you open to the mysteries, or sacred knowledge, the smaller you feel. And because you begin to feel smaller and smaller until your ego disappears, the more humble you become. Therefore, any man who behaves arrogantly with what little he knows, or claims to know all, only reveals to all that he really knows nothing. Real greatness does not reside inside those who feel large. The truly wise are meek. Yet being small and meek do not make one weak. Arming oneself with true knowledge generates strong confidence and a bold spirit that makes you a lion of god. The creator does not want you to suffer, yet we are being conditioned by society to accept suffering, weak and passive dispositions under the belief that such conditions are favorable by god. Weakness is not a virtue praised by god. How could he desire for you to be weak if he tells us to stand by our conscience? doing so requires strength. However, there is a difference between arrogance when inflating your ego, and confidence when one truly gets closer to god. One feels large, while the other feels small. Why? because a man of wisdom understands that he is just a small pea in a sea of infinite atoms, and that in the end — we are all connected. And did you not know that the smaller a creature is, the bolder its spirit?.
