True humility is intelligent self-respect which keeps us from thinking too highly or meanly of ourselves…it makes us modest by reminding us how far we have come short of what we can be.
— Ralph W. Sockman
Ah… this is ongoing practice for me. It horrifies me how sometimes I lapse into awful ego places thinking I’m so amazing and superior (I wrote a book, I’m an attractive woman etc etc) and then I fall into the hole of beating myself up and thinking I’m the dog poop smushed on the pavement. But I know deep down I’m neither. I’m human and learning and grateful for the beingness, and no better and no worse than anyone else. But more than that I’m striving to let the Divine and Earth Mother work through me to do their work. There is so much healing needed on this incredibly beautiful planet. I want to be a conduit for healing.
