Through grace, and it’s power to replace the temptations of ego with humility and discipline when we experience success, is how we detach our biases from the ego-generating machine of “success”.
What if we don’t practice gracious success? What if we don’t, and our successes go to our heads? Most likely, to a great or lesser degree, we’ll make asses of ourselves and push others away with righteousness, but when unchecked, we’ll become the reigning monarchs of our our tiny, little, insignificant holes-in-the-ground. Alone, atop a mountain of gleaming pride.
When successful, we practice returning to grace… continually.
Why? Well, the answer I’ve told myself is that Grace (as Virtue) is beyond bias, duality, and petiness (as are all the Virtues). I practicing grace-ing because it feeds my spirit and not my ego.
