Child Praying - Gratefulness in Prayer


Mary Cook, M.A., R.A.S.

Humility is not viagra canada self-deprecation, impoverishment, shame or humiliation.  It is not codependence, inferiority or passivity.  Neither is it lack of personal caretaking or responsibility.  Humility is recognizing that we see a tiny fraction of ourselves and life, and that everything is much greater than our physical senses and human awareness indicate.  Humility is believing that there is a deeper dimension in spirit, and that higher consciousness can lead us there.

Humility means that we remain curious, open-minded and teachable, and thus in a process of continual growth.  As divine creations, we have a responsibility to honor, respect and care for ourselves, each other and our planet.  Humility means that we do not take more than we need, and we willingly share what we have. We all have a profound effect on one another and we choose whether it will be positive or negative.  As the earth, its elements and atmosphere enable plants, animals and humans to survive, humility engages us to protect and nurture our precious resources and each other.

Humility means that we do not seek to control people nor our God, for that entraps us in mental, emotional, physical and spiritual sickness, and removes our ability to fulfill our soul’s purpose.  Our minds, hearts and bodies inform us of earthly life and we seek harmony and balance in our actions.  The fullness of our presence deepens our awareness of each unfolding moment.  We witness and respond to the whole of life with caring consideration and wonder, knowing that this is a process of perpetual discovery and evolution.  We understand that although we are a tiny part of the world, our presence has an important ripple effect on the planet.  Our soul sees the blessings and miracles of each moment and leads us into the humble and holy purpose of our lives.
