More wisdom from Vernon Howard

"What about the positive virtues, like love, patience, humility,
that make for a rich life? How can we acquire them?

They appear spontaneously when you find yourself. The True Self
possesses all these natural virtues. But there is something of
extreme importance for you to remember. Every genuine virtue
has its counterfeit.

The counterfeit of humility could be an assumed pose for the
purpose of making a good impression. Someone may want something
from you, and so he presents a pleasant and kindly manner. But
it will vanish quickly enough if he is thwarted. His real nature
then reveals itself, perhaps in rage or arrogance. You must be
very careful that you do not assume that other people are what
they appear to be. You must be a wise judge of human nature."

Yes, very wise indeed! Especially under "these" circumstances!
