Praise & Humble Pie

0

Gauranga Kishore Prabhu wrote a short blog about humility and this made me remember a realization of mind. I was thinking, why is it that I do not like glorification, and public praise?  The though lingered, is it because I am humble? But then the truth arouse. The proper method of dealing with praise is to deflect it to those who actually deserve praise. One may often turning the praise back on the pious and pure praiser. But because of my lack of humility I cannot think of others glorification an thus I just become dumbstruck. Therefore my lack of comfort of dealing with praise is actually not due to my humility but due to my pride.
