Me, Myself and I

 THE GREAT WAY

 

Metamorphosis, Sage of the Ages, enlightened Hunter on the subject of conceit and narcissism.

Hunter asked Morph, “Why shouldn’t I talk about myself all the time?”

The sage grinned. “First of all, it is important for you to understand that ‘me, myself, and I’ is your favorite subject. Since you are capable of non-stop talk, the habit of not talking about yourself will be extremely challenging until you realize the life-changing benefits.”

“But I feel important when I talk about myself,” Hunter said. “I feel my self-esteem getting higher when I get to tell a story about myself.”

Morph replied, “The truth is, when you have a healthy self-image you no longer have to talk about yourself. When you continually talk about yourself, you do not have high self-esteem, you suffer from a low self-image. By remaining silent you shall discover exactly who you are. Silence is golden.”

THE GREAT WAY

Hunter frowned. “That’s not going to be easy.”

“The less you say ‘I’ and the less you talk about yourself, the higher your self-image rises. There is magic in listening. The inner peace you experience by not having to talk about yourself puts your life in perfect order. This means the less you talk, the better you feel about yourself. The less you talk about yourself, the more others shall like you.”

“They will?” Hunter asked, scratching his head.

THE GREAT WAY

Morph smiled at the Earthling. “I have a challenge for you, my son.”

“I’m afraid to ask.”

Morph winked at Eve and sipped amrita from his leather bag.

THE GREAT WAY

“Sorry, that sounded sarcastic,” Hunter said. “Go ahead, what’s the challenge?”

“Starting now, I ask you to deal with Eve by not saying ‘I’ more than once during your conversations. Only say ‘I’ if she asks about you.”

Eve grinned at Hunter.

 THE GREAT WAY

“That’s not fair. She might do all the talking.”

“And what’s wrong with that?” the sage asked, grinning.

Hunter thought for a moment and nodded his head in approval.
