Every time you showcase your natural brilliance at the expense of someone else’s, you create an eclipse. A shadow is cast. No one feels better after the darkness falls and no one emerges brighter. Appearing brilliant can be illusory. Nature is content to be, knowing that everything is perfect, and nothing can be better than perfection. To say an address of perfection of understanding is less than one you have found yourself residing at is to say that nature’s perfection is imperfect. A sarcastic comment about another’s understanding can be momentarily gratifying, but rarely does it do any lasting good. A relatively benign comment about the limitations of another’s understanding can easily become sarcastic when the energetic intention is to elbow your way into the spotlight. Joy gets the brunt of your elbow’s sharp point, and other people do, too. It is best, when faced with the opportunity to steal the show, to opt instead for a more supporting role and allow another to lead where they are led. Nature breathes a sigh of relief every time you do.
