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.

World Meditation Day

World Meditation Day

Through meditation, we discover peace and happiness, and we begin to live our lives in a state of calm and equipoise, radiating that peace to others. We will no longer have to pray for peace—we will be peace.

Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day

On this day, and every day, let us appreciate the gift of love, how much love our mothers have for us and how much we have gained from that love. Let us also remember the one who created all mothers, God, and let a mother’s love remind us of the love that God has for us.

The Ocean of God’s Love

The Ocean of God’s Love

When we swim in the crystal clear, pure ocean of God, we can see the reflection of our true self or soul. There is no grime or dirt to muddy it. We can see to the depth of the ocean, undistracted by anything that keeps our attention from the calm of the water.
