It is with great honor that I am asked to comment on such an important topic, there is much for me to do on this day but I wish to answer this question about humility. Brothers and sisters, humility in its purest form is the ability to acknowledge someone’s karma while they in turn acknowledge yours, it is the giving and receiving of positively enforced energy, it is the exchange of the love energy, when someone thanks you for a gift you must acknowledge their karma, by saying a simple thank you for example, or whatever else you feel is the appropriate way to be thanked or thank someone.
You see, when you allow someone to praise and thank you, you allow their humbleness to be experienced, in turn allowing them to create positive karma, and likewise when you deny the praise of someone and reject their thank you, you are not allowing them to play out their karma and humility, you deny them the opportunity to benefit from their positive energy that they are freely giving which in turn you are truly denying this in yourself for a couple of reasons. You see, when you deny this from others you are consciously acknowledging that you are not worthy of such acknowledgment and thus you believe yourself to be not worthy and your soul (higherself) translates this as not being worthy of anything and so you lock yourself up in a cocoon of unworthiness.
Likewise, when you do not accept their humility and thank you, you are literally shutting them off from being able to move up in the path of ascension, because if you think about it, ascension is the art of learning how to become a more spiritual being, the art of moving up from the physical illusion to the spiritual reality, but being too humble will halt the process. You should always thank and be allowed to be thanked in return. Humility also comes in the form of allowing the ideas of others to flourish even if you do not believe in them, humility is the process of knowing that someone’s reality might conflict your own for example, but being humble and sure enough in yourself to allow their reality to flourish before your own.
When you have the ability to accept everything because you know everything is an illusion, is true humility. When you know that NO MATTER what, everything is just a simulation, is when you experience true humbleness because you know that whatever knowledge contradicts your own is someone’s own personal truth and not necessarily THE truth, because in your world reality is an illusion, only your spirit and it's connection to all there is, is what is real. Being truly humble means bowing to someone while at the same time allowing them to bow to you, you are respecting their sovereignty and allowing them to respect yours, you know this as Namaste which translates to:
I honor the Spirit in you which is also in me." -- attributed to but not claimed by author Deepak ChopraI honor the place in you in which the entire Universe dwells,
So you see, when you allow the divine presence to live through the acknowledgment of every beings perfection, you allow Source and Christ consciousness itself to live through each and every one of you.
