For the same reason that they are insecure, mistaking the qualities of I Am for I am. Same source, many different manifestations in the moment. It's like white light is the Source that allows all colors to be, the colors reflect and absorb different wavelengths, so the object appears to be the source of the color. Light is the Source.

Insecurity is the opposite quality of arrogance. Imo.. There seems to be more justifications for being insecure as a human being than being arrogant.   What's the source of arrogance? Can't be the same source of insecurities.

Maybe it's a little bit arrogant, ignorant, and delusional to believe that 90% of the people are arrogant, ignorant, and delusional.

Would you say so? :)

Myself included.  I don't claim to be free from these qualities.

The problem is I don't see enough justifications to be that way. I guess.

They are opposites, but in reality they aren't two separate things, creating one implies the other. If I have a blank sheet of paper and I draw a circle on it, I didn't just create a circle and the space within the circle, I created a circle and the area around the circle, the negative space of the circle. People act arrogant outwardly to cover over their own insecurities. Someone who sees weakness as being unacceptable will put on a strong façade. Someone who sees arrogance as unacceptable will put on a meek façade. They may truly believe themselves to be the façade. True Knowing and true Love are beyond these false walls, masks, outward action and appearance. This is true freedom.

@Someone here judgments, blame, fear.... that's all due to identification yourself with 'I'-thinking. That's fine to suffer, but do you really want to suffer? 

 You may watch @Nahm's video and DO what he points to:

No need for mental gymnastic, up to you though. Peace bro. ??


What a dream, what a joke, love it   :x

How do you know? So basically everyone acts in an opposite way of his internal original personality (let's call it that). 

@allislove thanks man. Will check it out. 

@dflores321

Yeah just felt like getting it off my chest.

@Someone here What you resist persists. You don't know what dark is if you don't know what light is. A Republican defines a Democrat and vice versa. All knowing and identification is based on comparing and contrasting.

I don't get it. A glass of water can kill you. If you swallowed in the worng way. That's how pathetic and weak you are. 

Sooner or later we will be food for bugs. Yep. That's all we will amount to. 

Who do we think we are?

Why are you talking to yourself?

Perhaps you are the most delusional :) <3 :D (im just teasing you, you know i love you).

So they don’t get hurt again. Which unfortunately is the creating of suffering, the defense of ‘the separate self’, as there aren’t actually arrogant, ignorant, egotistical or delusional people.

There's some truth to that.

No need to get agitated, in fact it's something to be empathized with. They are just trying to find themselves in the best way they know how. As do you and me.

Why can't it be? I feel like it is the exact same source, namely being the problem the ego faces that it thinks it "lost what it once had" - absolute love and unity with what is true.
Trying to return to that state, our psyches use different, albeit futile, techniques. Insecurity could be seen as the tendency to guilt yourself for having lost something, thinking that you're actually not good enough, that you did wrong. Arrogance feels like a layer on top of that, an inflation which serves self-deception, so that we think we are actually more worthy than others, and we should get what we want. It's all rooted in creating boundaries and differences where none are.

So it is to protect  'the known, the old'  ... in fear of ...  'the unknown, the new'  ...

In short: fear of death  --  fear of (missing out of) Love.

Someone here: I'd say the most delusional are those who say they aren't delusional. 

I'm delusional. I'm a human being, lol! :D

Bingo.

All negative emotions, i.e. shame, envy, anger, fear all stem from ignorance.

Ignorance leads to ego leads to fear leads to ... 'insert any negative emotion, arrogance, anger, envy, rascism, etc.'.

When it eventually dawns on you:

that the source of ignorance is Love,
that ego is God playing hide'n'seek with Itself out of pure Joy
that fear is Love
that the most unenlightened is the most Enlightened
and vice versa    
(yin-yang)   ...  

... you'll be floored.

people feel separate, an individual entity that must fight to survive. that generates insecurity. will i be suitable? it causes you to compare yourself with others, and if you interpret you are under, you feel depressed, worse, in deep not suitable for survival. so the obvious reaction is to try to be above. How? There are many ways, including feeling more spiritually advanced.

the remedy: see that there is no better or worse, only the perfection of what is

This is absolutely false!

Arrogance does not exist at all. It's literally impossible.

The way you perceive it, though, is that since you're God, and God is the ultimate Judge, you judge others for expressing themselves as God.

In other words, people aren't really arrogant or egotistical. You're just too goddamn judgemental, because that's what God is at the deepest level (infinite imagination = infinite judgement lol). God just sits there and keeps judging himself all the time, unless he doesn't have enough time to do so (i.e. in case he has more important shit to do).
