😌 Humility…

Greetings!

What is humility?

I used to think to be humble you have to put yourself down, privately and publicly. It’s something that you do by sharing your shortcomings in conversations.

However on further reflection, it seems by criticizing yourself you’re trying to show people how “humble” you are.

Is that really humility? It seems like pride disguised as humility.

It reminds of a quote I once read: “Don’t act so humble; you not that great.”

A man who overtly criticizes himself, is secretly praising himself. ~ Imam Ali

So what is humility?

I don’t think we need to “be humble.” Humility is a natural result of recognizing the truth, that God is the originator of all good. We merely reflect God’s attributes.

Humility will naturally arise as a way of life, by bringing this truth in our awareness.
