Sometimes it seems as if a lot of us folks have a real hard time being humble.The human ego is made in such a way that most of us derive a sense of pleasure when we feel as if we are "right" and the ones who cant agree with us are wrong. I know I have battled that issue more than once in my life. After all, if something seems so genuine and real to us then we think it stands out to others in the same way and we cant understand it when they dont agree with us.That is just a human being being human to me.But with that being said I also realize it would behoove all of us to be a little more humble in the way we share our beliefs with others.I have worked really hard on myself to arrive at that point in my own evolution where I can now freely admit that my beliefs are mine only and may not be "right" for you or anyone else as far as that goes. And I hope I am humble enough to always view your opinions as being equally as "right" as mine. One thing I have noticed is that a lot of folks who have their own beliefs so secured within their minds is that they are quick to defend them as the only way.But I think if one will humble themselves just a bit and accept the notion that their beliefs may not be right for everyone that they will be better off.As for me I have my beliefs which I freely share with anyone who wants to hear them but in no way shape form or fashion will I ever "defend" my beliefs. I hope that all of you are secure with your beliefs and that they bring you much joy and inner peace.When we can all be content within ourselves and just be who we are I think the world will be a lot better off than it is now.In closing I would like to share a quote from Joan Borysenko who has stated:"We know the Godseed within us is growing when we feel the joy, the gratitude, and the optimism of true humility. Humility is the freedom of having nothing to prove because we are completely secure in our identity as children of the Divine." May I once again remind you to try and do something nice for someone right now so you can feel the satisifaction of being part of the solution for the betterment of all life everywhere.
