Humility

The past few weeks for me have been something of a whirlwind.  I am sure you can think back to events in your own history which shook you to your core.  I've been there for a couple of weeks. 

I participated in a discussion recently on the need for humility in life.  All too often, the human ego drives us to the edge of the abyss of self imposed misery.  I also tend to be impressed by the seeming successes of those who operate on high octane ego.  I can't help but think of the numerous times in my life when humility was given to me - not of my own choosing.  Like so many things in nature, humility is self regulating.  You don't have to fear too much about being without it for too long.  It will assuredly come to you at a time when you may be least expecting it but are most in need of it.

Humility is coming to me in the form of getting out of self.  When tightfisted in my efforts to control my environment, largely as a result of my own dissatisfaction over my spiritual health - I choke the light out of things and those around me. Enough.
