There is an old saying that those who know don't talk and those who talk
don't know.

     First of all I do not know first hand about the higher self. Nor
have I met a person yet who tells me convincingly about he/she is in
contact with his/her/the higher self. Nor do I know if anyone group of
individuals spiritually superior or inferior. I have always claimed each
one of us is unique and many of our problems are due to the comparisons
in life.

   See my comments above. Will the person who said about getting in touch
with our higher self, speak up. I am really very interested to hear.

   See my comments above. Why compare any one to any one else including

  Have we not heard about some people who are self controlled and cool,
but are killers and crooks. So irritability is not a sign connected with
anything spiritual, IMHO
