Humility is my best friend, I've always valued it above all other spiritual qualities.
Humility is the most important quality in the spiritual life. When it is lacking spiritual growth stops.
If you have humility you are halfway to God-realization.
The only way you will advance spiritually is through humility.
If you seek eternity and light and luminosity, seek humility first ... first things first.
Humility is the time that you spend in love with existence.
Your life is pure joy, pure ecstasy, when you live in humility.
You are happiest when you are most humble. You are most miserable when you are egotistical.
When you're humble it's like wearing a beautiful flower. It inspires others. It generates energy and power.
Humility has tremendous power. Think of Gandhi. That was humility in action. He changed the shape of an entire nation.
We prefer humility in others -- and if we prefer it in others -- we can soon prefer it in ourselves.
Humility doesn't mean hiding in the corner and pretending you are not strong. Humility means to be what you are.
“The person next to me meditates better than I do. They're purer.” -- This is the ego feeling sorry for itself.
Humility accepts the very nature of a human being is complete, unadulterated, ecstatic joy.
Have a healthy respect and love for yourself, but don't be taken out by your ego.
Practice humility constantly. Whenever you start to think well of yourself, push those thoughts aside. Whenever you think ill of yourself, push those thoughts aside.
Humility means coming to the root of the matter, honestly looking at yourself and saying: "This is me for better or for worse."
Humility feels that there is someone, somewhere who can do anything I can do better -- except one thing: no one can be better at being me.
Humility is courage, the open acceptance of your own perfection.
Humility is the conscious awareness and acceptance of eternity as your body.
I must play my role, great or small -- that is humility, without self-importance, without self-indulgence.
We're blind, deaf and dumb. It is only that Self, which is our life force that makes who and what we are. The realization of that is self-realization.
Humility accepts that God places us in the right place at every single moment, not a moment to soon and not a moment too late.
Humility means freedom. It provides growth and takes you out of the cycle of change that you are currently in, which is stagnation.
The fact that you see a manifold world with different times, places and conditions --this exists only because of a lack of humility.
Only the ego can fear, experience hate, lust and jealousy. Humility experiences none of these things -- it merges into the transcendental awareness of perfection.
It's very easy for us to be humble when no one else is around. There is no reason for us to demonstrate our superiority, because no one challenges it.
When we interact with others the ego manifests. We have to show that we're superior or that we know more, are more spiritual, evolved -- or that we're the worst, everyone is better.
You can be in a crowd full of friends and be miserable because you're alienated. The ego alienates.
Ego synthesized is selfhood, the sense of self-importance, that you really matter ... nothing could be further from the truth.
The ego seeks fame and fortune. Humility doesn't seek at all -- it accepts.
Everyone will admire you when you do well. What a horrible thing to do to someone.
Whenever anybody does well spiritually, I usually ignore them. It's the greatest compliment I can pay them.
When you realize that the ego is making you miserable you don't identify with it. You identify with your soul's humility and the ego dissolves.
When someone compliments you, listen, but don't believe it. Praise or blame are immaterial. You know what you are.
People who are humble don't talk too much; they listen.
You stop growing when you stop listening.
Don't stand out. Be in a room and remain unnoticed.
Humility means you're willing to give someone a bigger slice of the pie.
Let someone else take your place in line, Let someone else be first. Let someone else achieve realization before you.
Real humility is something that no one else will see. No one will know about your humility, if it's real.
Humility can give everything to God. Everything comes from the source, everything returns to the source.
Humility means realizing that it's fun to give everything away, particularly the things that you are most attached to.
It's an exciting adventure to give those things that you've always held onto.
Meditation is humility -- the absence of thought, doubt, and ego.
In meditation the mind stops, thought ceases. When thought stops, the world stops. When the world stops, perception stops. When perception stops, the sense of "I" as a perceiver falls away.
Every day work on your humility through your meditation, giving more of yourself, giving those things you don't want to give.
When there's nothing but humility, there's nothing but spiritual oneness.
If you wish to cultivate humility, then you should associate with those who are humble.
When you admire others, you become one with them and the world loves you.
Without humility you can't love. Love means looking beyond the self to the other.
If you suffer in love, if you have problems in love, it's because you don't have enough humility.
If you really have humility when you love, there is only one thought: "What can I do for my beloved?"
Humility does not live in the prison of illusion that says that this world is a dark and terrible place. Those perceptions are phantoms; everything is eternity, God, divine.
There is nothing that isn't perfect, the only reason we don't see that perfection constantly is because we lack humility.
Humility means that you have the courage to accept that you are eternity itself.
Accept that you are that -- you are the matchless, eternal reality. That's true seeing, true humility.
