Pride in suffering

A lot of "metaphysical or spiritual people", from my experience, will not let go of past suffering but rather wear it as a badge of honour.  Similarly, if one is living what appears to be a magical life without a great deal of suffering, they are deemed to have no credibility.  Suffering is turned into a manipulation.

In this quote, Ramtha "tells it like it is".

“What happens when you suddenly say, “I did create my life”?  Ah, there is something inside of you that twists and turns and has a vise on your soul that you just can’t quite get it out because your pride is in your suffering.  Arrogant people are those that suffer in pride, and pride won’t let you give it up because it is a pet peeve.  You will say, “Well, this is who I am”.  I will say to you, “That most certainly is, and you can have it.  It is your creation”.  But what if you got over it and just flung it out there, what could possibly happen to you?  A lot, because you never thought that way.”
(Ramtha:  Who Are We Really?)
