You may recall an experience in you life when you sense you learned a valuable lesson. You may talk about it to reinforce the assumed point of understanding. During another stage of your life, you may wonder why a new opportunity presents to you to learn the same lesson. In fact, you may begin to notice the lesson is available to you again and again and you had been unaware until now. What is the timeless message?
Awakening is a signal from the universe that the mind can tell you one thing while the heart knows another in silence. Humility is like a signpost, a feeling reminder of the right way of seeing things from the broadest possible point of view. It is meekness, the willingness to be perceived however others choose and not having to prove you are right. It is about letting go of what your ego tells you matters and discovering it means nothing. Let go of what you think you want. Surrendering to not knowing is everything.
"Humility is the only true wisdom by which we prepare our minds for all the possible changes of life." -George Arliss
"...in the school of the Spirit man learns wisdom through humility, knowledge by forgetting, how to speak by silence, how to live by dying." -John Tauer
