"Pride as power and faith" an essay

Daniel Christopher June to the students of life --

This is the latest section of a protracted essay on pride. I have a future book entitled Allheart which has an extended essay on each emotion -- love, fear, courage, pride. This one on pride continue to unfolds; in this section I consider that pride means "power" etymologically, and then take a look at theological pride, with Joseph Smith as a foil for the sort of self-reverence Allism expects of itself. That pride is a virtue -- the crown of the virtues -- remains the theme of the entire essay. This section expands the experience into the mystical and religious sense, while keeping it grounded in every day ability.

Take care, Caretakers!
