Recently, I have been wanting to have more humility.
I have been asking the Universe every day to bring conditions into my life that will humble me.
Because I'm asking, I'm keeping an open mind and doing my best not to follow my own thoughts and desires, but instead to follow the world.
How following other people and not my own thoughts leads to more humility
This morning I wanted to get a coffee - not that I needed one, I just wanted one.
But because of what was going on around me, I was told not to go.
Instantly, my pride was triggered, the idea of being told what to do against my will set my entire being on fire and I wanted to explode in defiance.
That young boy that grew up with that pride and fiery temper I inherited from my ancestors....
But because my mind is set to the task of letting go of that pride, I instantly recognized it, so I first separated myself from it, calmed down, and just accepted the situation.
It provided an opportunity to grow out of that and into having more humility.
There's still a long way to go, but I just keep taking 1 step at a time.
Seems to be all I can handle...
