Man creates and develops in himself an abounding variety of selfish habits and attitudes that leads to great discontent for himself. A person might feel elated that he has become the master of all arts, or owner of all wealth, or possessor of all knowledge; but from whom did he acquire all these? That source must indeed be greater. He might even claim that he earned all this through his own efforts. But surely someone gives it to him, in some form or other. This he cannot gainsay. The source from which all power originates is God. Ignoring the omnipotent Lord and deluding oneself thinking that the little power one has acquired is one's own is indeed egoism.
