Hey all! Another late message from another
day of travel. My apologies for those of you who enjoy having it in the mornings and will be nestled into Houston until Monday and have an early flight 🙂
I am excited to write though, here we are with #3. I found diving into this quite interesting.
3. THE LAW OF HUMILITY
– What you refuse to accept, will continue for you.
– If what we see is an enemy, or someone with a character trait that we find to be negative, then we ourselves are not focused on a higher level of existence.
I find this one to be a mixture of both “What you resist persists.” AND “What you see in others is a reflection of self.” Inside of each of these is an incredible lesson, and can be helpful to one another, however, they are clearly not the same.
Question is, why is it the Law of *Humility* though? When you research the definition of humility it is as follows:
“Having or showing a modest or low estimate of one’s own importance.”
Why would that be helpful? Shouldn’t it read “Having or showing an accurate estimate of one’s own importance” in order to be able to apply this?
Lastly, I understand the 2nd point more than the 1st in regards to humility, although I find it again, interesting, that in order to accept something there’s a placement to have a low estimation of Self.
In closing, I agree with the notes, but not the title. As I have understood humility it could make sense, but by its actual definition it seems like an ineffective way of approach.
What do you all think? Thanks for being on the other side!
