People are welcomed to look down on me; if I believe in myself I don't require the approval of higher-ups. There are no higher-ups in my view other than authority. I question authority whenever possible. Is authority due to merit or due to a will to power? The greatest authority is discovered internally; I frequently question the inner truth.
If a person has walked a noble and truthful path then I would be interested in knowing what made me feel inferior or looked down upon; if a person has no empathy, then why would I be affected by what they think? Unfortunately, or fortunately for the masses, the upper regions of society have little spiritual vision; they depend on the masses for their power, entitlements, and sense of superiority.
With empathy and care, one would simply feel compassion for those trapped in the esteem of self-importance. Free yourself from the feelings of inferiority. Self-respect is monumentally different than self-esteem.
"I need no leaders for I was born unto this world with a conscience; I need no providers because I was graced with abundance; I serve others willingly and with gratitude, for I was born free, and I have no need for earthly servants to look down upon."
