Humbleness, the art of softness.
Hey guys. I’m working on my vision for this site and blog. Ill be updating soon to provide a better service to you all! Today I wish to talk about the art of humbleness.
Being humble to me means the willingness to suck to be better. For me, I block myself from improving. We are never done, we never stop growing. Even at a cosmic level, life is always in motion. Eternity never stops moving, neither should you.
Its often tough to admit to ourselves that we can be, do and have better. It’s hard to look at our own perveives flaws and deal with them. However, there is one fundamental truth I learned from conversations of God. “What you resist persists, what you look at goes away.”
When I would try to run away from my problems, I would great such a big resistance that I would make smaller avoidable problems into big monstrosities. For instance, when I was yo-yoing on my diet, I would ignore the problem. I would tell myself “your crazy if you think you’re gaining weight! It’s just muscle.” Although the mirror and scale said something else entirely. I got so big that I had an emotional breakdown.
Only when I took responsibility and asked for help did I get control on my weight. I told myself, you know what “somebody out there found an answer to my problem, and has a way to help me.” That’s when I bought Kino Body, a workout program. I lost 20 pounds (~10 kg)
It was because I was willing to put my ego out of the way and asked for help did I get help. Asking for help is okay. Nothing is beyond fixing or getting better. If you’re struggling with anything, money, relationships, body issues, you can bet somebody has already dealt with it and found a solution.
Being humble is being vulnerable but not weak. There is a great stoic quote that explains this.”What hinders your task, is your task.”-Whatever is stopping you from being your best version is the quest the universe has given you.
Being humble is saying, thank you universe for giving me this challenge to grow. I trust in your higher wisdom abe I will take the call. If you resist it, you feel pain. That is nit because the universe is malevolent, it does it to wake you up. We are so powerful, yet we forget.
Humbleness is also knowing the fact that no one is better or worse than you. We are all creators. Yes, there are differences, advantages, and disadvantages, but fundamentally no one is better or worse. We are all one being. If one man can do one thing, so can another. People who have faced dire circumstances rose to the top. Nelson Mandela, Gandhi, Dr. Wayne Dyer. If they became successful so can you.
Humbleness is being gentle with yourself. When I think of humbleness, I think of something soft. I used to fall into the trap believing if I was always tough on myself I can improve myself. However, as a Catch 22, the harder I was on myself the less driven I was to do anything. Love yourself like the Sun loves the earth. Not once did the Sun say “You owe me.” We are all in the same boat. We all want happiness, peace, and love. Be humble.
That’s all for today!
