“Humility is holding all your senses open and recognizing what is required in any challenging or volatile situation—namely love—regardless of what is being demonstrated.”
This definition of humility was given to me by my Guides in response to my request for a client who, despite having experienced great personal growth, couldn’t reach that place of truly letting go of his “issues” with specific individuals in his life. He continued his pattern of reactivity towards these people with the rolling of his eyes and the continuance of his commentary about them. But in fact, the pattern originated in adolescence as a result of his relationship with his Mother and has continued into present time with specific women with similar personalities. (Psychology 101) He consequently couldn’t arrive at humility which we both recognized was the goal.
How many times have you been moved – even to tears – by a compassionate person exhibiting genuine selflessness, generosity, tenderness and amazing humility?
When we allow ourselves to become reactive, it creates a stalemate situation – in terms of resolution. In any out-of-balance situation, what is needed across the board, is LOVE, compassion, patience and forgiveness. Then finally, we arrive at humility. It is the only wise course of action.
But so often, we are defiantly attached to our patterns, they are familiar and comfortable because we don’t know differently. We struggle with letting them go, often because we don’t understand their origins. BUT in order to make the changes we want in our lives, we have to give them up.
It’s safe to give them up – it’s freeing and transformative!
