    Nipun,

    this is an interesting little essay... thank you  :))
    What the author may miss is that if we feel a lack of power, 
    being critical can be a compensation
    a kind of narcissistic self-inflation...
     
    enthusiasm, 
    to be filled with the spirit,
    is, happily, the opposite of being critical
     
    to see the beauty, the goodness,
    to be optimistic may
    requires that we have the capacity 
    to be vulnerable and also to transcend 
    our vulnerability... 
     
    I "think"...
