HUMILITY MONTH: DAY 3: “She says her father was so diplomatic that when people came to him for solutions, people not only accepted them, but they believed they thought of them.” ― Immaculée Ilibagiza
That is amazing, isn’t it? I usually want full credit for my ideas or insights, so would be challenged to be this kind of humble. A good goal though, isn’t it?
I believe we are humble when we are striving for things we have not yet attained. I am so excited by the possibilities sometimes that I get quite carried away. I remember the thrills of excitement that used to come to me in the early days when simple revelations were made. I still do that.
I get so happy and excited to understand some spiritual nugget that I just want to pop! There are times when I am working with others that I jump up and down in my excitement over a new way of seeing something. It truly is thrilling.
What is even better is that I KNOW it comes from a place so deep I did not know it was within my being. I believe, though, that Spirit lives within me, in my heart space; and that is the source of inspiration and insight. It is so important for me to be in that space when I am working with others.
Sometimes I can feel a shift from my heart to my head and it bothers me. I want to stay in my heart, but so many years of old behaviors and ideas still creep into the situation and I am stuck there. Sigh! Perhaps those AHA! moments will give me more incentive to stay in the heart space.
I love writing, because I can easily slip into the heart, not the head. It is a great escape from worry and all Screaming Purple Monkey (SPM) activity, because I get lost in the flow of words. All of my focus is on what I am writing. No time to think. Yay!
This happens when I journal, when I write anything at all. Such a great and deep practice for me. I am connected with my source. I love it! I know so many people who tell me that they cannot write. I am not surprised. Of course not! It is our nature as addicts to live full time in ego and never go into anything that is heart. So, start working on that…you will be amazed in a very short time! You will be out of the deadly zone of the EGO and into the spiritual zone of the heart. A short distance of about 5000 miles…good job!
