True humility is humility before the Divine. It is a precise, exact, living sense that one is nothing, one can do nothing, understand nothing without the Divine… Even if one is exceptionally intelligent and capable, this is nothing in comparison with the Divine Consciousness.
Humility is the recognition that one does not know, that one knows nothing, and that there may be something beyond what presently appears to us as being truest, noblest, most disinterested. True humility consist in referring oneself constantly to the Lord, in placing everything before Him.
It is very simple: when you tell people, “Be humble”, they immediately think of being humble before other men, and that humility is bad. True humility is humility before the Divine-that is, the precise, exact. living sense that one is nothing, can do nothing, understands nothing without the Divine, that even if one is an exceptionally intelligent and capable person, one is nothing in comparison with the Divine Consciousness. And one has to keep that always, because always one has the true attitude of receptivity, a humble receptivity which does not put personal pretension in the way of the Divine.
