The Power of Humility


Humility is not something we naturally seek out. It is a quality that we gain, generally against our will. We often spend our days doing our level best to avoid the kinds of circumstances that teach us humility. But humility brings many benefits. When you are truly humble, it means the hard shell of the ego has been cracked open and your essence can shine through. With your soul finally laid bare, your chances of life really working out for you are significantly greater. And there are very good reasons why.

Humility puts us in synch with the Universe, and opens up possibilities of Life working in new and perhaps easier ways. When we are humble we recognize that we are just human, that we will fail, and that we are all, eventually, in the same boat. This awareness can transform our relationships. With our hearts open, we begin to see others in a new light. And we become ready to give and receive love and kindness – that which nourishes and strengthens our inner self and our bonds with others. Humility may be exactly the tweaking we need for our lives to fall right into place.

Thankfully, we don’t have to wait for Life to humble us. We can practice humility by seeing ourselves in the eyes of our fellow human beings – whether it’s Angelina and Brad, the homeless man at the street corner, or the friend who is facing a great challenge.
