There is a great deal of power in humility.
Sometimes it is useful for your own protection.
Sometimes it is useful in the protection of others.
The power of humility allows you to see
the benefit in everything,
even in the insults of others.
It enables you to say,
‘Maybe there’s something for me to learn here.
Someone is saying this to me,
there must be something to it.’
Even insults become learning situations, naturally.
You don’t feel a need to get upset. You aren’t affected in a negative way.
Your own self-respect works to keep you steady, no matter what the criticism coming your way.
Even if the problem is theirs, not yours,
and there’s nothing for you to change in yourself, still,
humility removes the need for you to say so.
Real humility results in so much power of truth and inner
silence, that you don’t need to say anything at all in words.
The very power of your inner state of being will make
the other person realise
the error of their ways.
Your only desire at that time is the hope
that they will be touched by your humility,
so that they can open and begin to enjoy
their humility, too.
