C.S. Lewis said, “As long as you are proud you cannot know God. A proud man is always looking down on things and people: and, of course, as long as you are looking down you cannot see something that is above you.”
I cannot look sideways or forward without looking inward first and foremost at my strengths and weaknesses. I am reminded how humility teaches me to be with love, with the self, and with God.
Falling on my knees in prayer I am connecting with the oneness of all there is and will ever be…divinity. Humility forces me to be kinder, gentler, while forgiving the things that come my way. The stronger the trials, the longer the patience, the easier it is to be humbled. There is nothing else to do. I accept the insults, the judgments, the heart aches and bring them to the understanding that they must uncover the triggers in my own faults. I choose the things that hurt to partake in a deeper union with Source. When things are easy there is no need to pray so this is an opportunity to strengthen my spirituality. Belief and faith bring forth the humble heart.
Stop the ego chit-chat, the self sabotage that arrives from giving others power over you. You cannot move with light and an open heart while worrying about what others perceive. It’s about how YOU live through your own experiences. Be present. Be aware. Be love. Be forgiving without making a spectacle of it all. Be generous with all that makes you kind.
I challenge you to sit with your humility. I urge you to take moments of silence and accept the things you cannot change and not beat yourself up. The only control you have is in the choices you get to make for you. Find the balance between what is and what is not. I promise you will be amazed!!!

Thank you so much for this Millie. I have been working this morning and as I finished one call I pulled myself up short. I had a horrible feeling that judgement may have come into how I handled things. For a few seconds I lost compassion and forgot to step into their shoes. God forbid I ever end up telling people what to do. Hugs for you my lovely. ❤ xX

Yes indeed. Following your light.
Hi Millie ♥
I was talking to someone about hunmility the other day and had to admit that I’m not particularly humble in the self-effacing groveling sense that seems to ba a standard for so many. I think I’ll coin a word and call that humile. It’s what people do often when they don’t really mean it, sort of an egotistical ‘more humble than thou’ one-upsmanship ploy. That’s humile.
I like the practical humility of thinking about the simple truth that I’m one of seven or eight billion discrete personalities on this planet which is a tiny mote in a universe of billions of galexies. None of us are a big deal, eh? And yet, I’m a big deal to me.
You, my sweet friend, are a BIG thing to ME. Love you mucho.
“Be generous with all that makes you kind.” What a great reminder. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you for stopping by.
