People read the biographies of successful people.
This is because we are trained from birth to aspire to worldly success.
But we make the mistake of thinking that those who succeed in a worldly sense are the right people to emulate.
The qualities that it takes to succeed in the world are not spiritual qualities.
So if we aspire to be spiritual people stars and celebrities are not the right people to copy.
Spirituality is characterized by humility.
Spiritual people are warm and compassionate, patient, honest, and charitable.
They are filled with joy.
But most of all they show love.
These are not the qualities you will find in biographies.
