A few things re Humility

Humility looks like saying, “There is something here that I don’t know, the knowing of which would change everything.” Humility looks like saying, “You may be right,” or, “I can understand how you could feel that way.”

Humility looks like an open acknowledgement that we don’t have it all figured out, that we’re all doing the best we can, that none of us are better than the rest of us, and that ours is not a better way, ours is merely another way.

Humility looks like bowing in the presence of kings and peasants, knowing that there are no peasants in the eyes of God, and that we are all royalty.

Humility looks like saying, “Please,” and, “Thank you,” and “May I?” And, of course, “After you.”

Humility looks like asking for help, and giving it when it is asked. Humility looks like sharing all that we have, knowing that it was not ours to begin with, but has merely been given to us to distribute to others. This goes for money, possessions, knowledge, and... love.

Humility has nothing to do with self-sacrifice. It has to do with self-awareness. It has to do with an awareness of Who We Really Are... and, thus, of who everyone else is.

Easy Does it..Keep It Simple..Let Go and Let God..
