Humility

Humility is our connection with our own fundamental Being, which has certain qualities:
Acceptance of what is, rather than complaints of 'poor me' or 'why me?'
Openness, rather than preoccupation with 'me'
Gratefulness, rather than resentment for what has happened to 'me'
Generosity, rather than possessiveness
Modesty, rather than the self-importance of 'me'
Forgiveness, rather than blame of others of ourselves
Trust, rather than insecurity and doubt.

--Kabir Helminski in 'The Knowing Heart'
