What is So Great About Humility?

 ". . . humility, is not proud; it is dignified, inspired, intelligent, peaceful, assured, alert, responsive, and highly effective. It is not a form of behavior but, rather, a quality of consciousness. . . . If we could be truly humble we would never know anxiety."

What is the great value of humility? It is very simple: meekness and humility make life easy. It is the secret of the harmonious, trouble-free, effortless life. So, in juxtaposition to this, whenever we feel like complaining about how hard life is, how heavy a burden we have to carry, how nothing seems to be working out, how people mistreat us, how complicated everything is becoming in life, we can ask instead: "What is the meaning of this?" Perhaps it is a sign that we are not sufficiently "shouldless" and not sufficiently humble.
