The deception of spiritual pride is it produces a false spirituality based on a puffed up perception of our ego and the high opinion of ourselves in comparison to other people.

Silence is the sanctuary for God’s presence residing in the depths and recesses of our heart.  In the solitude and quiet, we seek and discover the love of Christ dwelling with us. In the silence, we become still to hear God speaking life to us. Be still and know I am God.
