For most of us, the mind chatters on about self-worth. Whether that inner voice is boasting about your accomplishments or chastising your shortcomings, the chatter is still all about you. So what is humility? Perhaps it’s that ability to set the smaller self aside and open to the humbling vastness of the cosmos, the amazing wisdom within the rhythms of nature, or the wonder of life manifested in the human or creature next to you.
In mindful presence,
Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it’s thinking of yourself less.
—C. S. Lewis
