Finding Humility through Wisdom


Finding Humility through Wisdom
Recognizing the Source in All Life — Realigning with a New Dress-Code Let’s tackle a very difficult notion, one that I think needs addressing.  Actually, not only does it need addressing but also undressing and a complete new wardrobe!  I’m going to have a crack at being the brave little tailor here. We believe in the dignity of every life, the possibility of every mind, the divinity of every soul. This is our true North.  ~Elizabeth Dole Now then, let’s see — simply put — God, the Divine Intelligence that created us all, the Source or whatever you choose to call it, is omnipresent, in everyone and everything.  This is not a new concept— most religions or faiths believe this.  So why is it so hard to see the divinity in others? I think it is because we don’t understand the outer actions or inner framework of thought construct with some of our global siblings.  But how can we overcome this huge hurdle and see divinity en-masse?  And how can we get over our own spiritual egos so that we can treat all as equal? Are Adults Superior to Children? Let’s use this as a metaphor.  Say you have a 4 year-old and you are an adult of 34.  Would you look down on the child and shake your head declaring, ‘you just don’t get it, do you?’  Would you feel superior because, in your experiential 30 years of extra life, you do get it? Hardly, I should think.  Why?  Because you know that the child will most likely catch up to your level of experience by the time he is 34, if not surpass your current field of understanding altogether. Now let’s apply this to a global metaphor. The Illusion of Supremacy Some souls are further along in their development than others; however the latter are like the child metaphor — they could be just starting out.  Just because they started their spiritual sojourn later than you, does not make you better than them. They could grow so exponentially that they might end up being the next Dalai Lama, Mother Theresa or Martin Luther King — even though it may not be in their current lifetime. It’s all about seeing the bigger picture, being humble in the wake of your accumulated knowledge and look past all preconceived ideas or judgments about another soul’s path.  When you do this, you may be able to recogize the divine shard of God that they hold. Don Your New Outfit Clothe yourself in a cloak of understanding, humility and reverence for all life — no matter what shape, size or form it takes in the present moment. Do not judge a sleeping person for missing out on the beautiful delights of the dawn.  Rather enjoy the spectacle of the sunrise and know in your heart that when they awaken, they will too experience the joy of the sun. You are no better or worse than another, through your personal awakening you have just become aware. Everyone has a spirit that can be refined, a body that can be trained in some manner, a suitable path to follow. You are here to realize your inner divinity and manifest your innate enlightenment. ~Morihei Ueshiba This article was written by Cherie Roe Dirksen.
