What is Humility?

Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj

December 16, 2020

Humility is a virtue that helps us grow spiritually. It means that we live without looking down on others. We are kind and considerate to others. Humility is a way that we present ourselves to others in which we do not act or speak as if we are superior or better than everyone else. Humility means to live in a way that we recognize everyone is the same as us. We see God in everyone.

We need to learn to curb our ego. The difficulty arises when we feel we are superior to everyone else. We may realize that at times we may be smarter, stronger, or richer than others, as judged at a physical level, but we also realize that at our very core, we are all the same and are all one. For example, we can see that all flowers are part of the same garden. We can see that some flowers are red, some are purple, and some are yellow. Some are tall and some are short. We can know there are outer differences, but we know they are all part of one garden and they are all flowers.

Similarly, we may all look different outwardly, but inside we are all the same. We are all soul, a part of God. Humility means realizing we are all one and the same, and treating everyone with love, kindness, and respect.
