Humility
Is the expansion of one’s real reality
In a sweet, illumining and fulfilling way.
Humility
Is not the helpless surrender
To something or someone else.
Humility
Is not a frightened child.
Humility
Is real receptivity in us.
If we receive with devoted humility,
Then immediately our receptivity-vessel increases.
Humility
Is the secret of secrets
For self-expansion,
For world-inspiration
And
For world-transformation.

You are really great.
Your humility
Has erased earth-anger.

You are really good.
Your humility
Has fed Heaven-hunger

2

 

Humility is not humiliation.
No, never!
Humility is an inner light
That genuinely inspires
The rest of the divine virtues
To come to the fore
And illumine the world.

3

Humility
Soulfully follows
Happiness.

4

 

Humility
Is
An extraordinary achievement.

5

 

Humility is the capacity
That expands.
Humility is the capacity
That dives deep within.
Humility is the capacity
That flies high, higher, highest.

6

 

Humility can be achieved very fast.
Humility can be made very vast.
Humility can give us
What nothing else can give us:
Inseparable oneness
With God’s Delight.

7

 

Among the spiritual qualities,
Humility’s role can never be
Adequately described.
It can only be felt.

8

 

The difference
Between pride and humility
Is this:
Pride wants to manifest itself;
Humility is manifested
By God Himself.

9

 

Humility is a secret
And sacred way
To establish one’s universal reality.

10

 

When we achieve something,
We should become
Humility-gratitude-flood.

11

 

Humility covers
The length and breadth of the world
In secrecy supreme.
