”Don’t be so humble; you’re not that good.” Golda Mier
I am taking Ms. Mier’s advice and I am not being humble any more. What I am doing is having humility. When I decided to have humility, I delved into it to discover its deeper meaning. For me, humility is quiet confidence meaning that I believe in who and what I am, I don’t have to prove anything to anyone, I like and love me and I am sure of my capabilities, my talents, my intelligence, my compassion and my sensitivity. These aspects of myself cannot be taken away, they are not for sale and I can continually grow these aspects in myself.
The quiet confidence of my humility assures me that I know who I am, never to give my power up to another no matter who and what they are. I am not better than anyone and no one is better than me. I am just different and I no longer compare my differences to someone else. I accept myself for who and what I am and that is the bedrock of true humility.
Why is this important? Humility is vital today as we see tremendous amounts of disenfranchisement with people, we see people giving up their power so easily to just about everything including other people who we should never give our power up to, we have allowed technology to rob us of our sense of self, giving up our power to machinery, we give up our power to gurus, saints, avatars and others who we think are greater than us. No one is greater than anyone else.
If you believe you are better than anyone else, you are evincing the height of arrogance, ego, judgement, approval, comparison and competition. You live in a paradigm where you must always prove your worth instead of just being your worth. You have lost your humility so you practice what I
call a fake humbleness. That’s why I don’t practice being humble. I am not humble. I have humility because I am quite confident in my self-esteem and self-worth that has been sharpened and deepened by years of cleaning my connecting link to intent.
I am a major manifestor, a creator and I take responsibility for my actions. Whatever the consequences of my actions, I accept them with grace. That’s humility. I don’t serve or eat humble pie.
