And the servants of the Beneficent God are they who walk on the earth in humbleness, and when the ignorant address them, they say Peace.
The self-confidence of the warrior is not the self-confidence of the average man. The average man seeks certainty in the eyes of the onlooker and calls that self-confidence. The warrior seeks impeccability in his own eyes and calls that humbleness. The average man is hooked to his fellow men, while the warrior is hooked only to infinity.
It is to be all made of fantasy,
All made of passion, and all made of wishes;
All adoration, duty, and observance,
All humbleness, all patience, and impatience,
All purity, all trial, all obedience;
And so am I for Phebe.
Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering.
He came in with a chip on his shoulder. He's got something to prove. They did a good job picking him. They stole one. He's got borderline cockiness, but he's got enough humbleness where you don't think he's arrogant.
When Man will re-find himself, then demons with angels and God with the Devil will reconcile. It will be a step forward, but not enough to remove the vanity of the world. Nevertheless, man will not admit defeat, he will struggle, and he will be once again put to the test of accepting a new Original Sin, of taking the blame of the divinity on him. This time he will not accept this low bargain and will allow eternal peace between God and the Devil and between the Good in Man and the Evil in Man in this world. Then he will slowly understand in its evolution as sacerdotal being that not only does he not have Will and Knowledge, not only that he is meant to grasp this world precisely through the Knowledge he does not have, he will understand that he is only the love he does not know and which forms the only meaning of his existence in this dream of the Illusion of Life. When he will find the Sacred Self, man will stop fighting with the vanity of its own existence because he will understand that this vanity it is given to him so that he will always turn against it , that this vanity is everything that pushed him to vileness and humbleness, to false, lie, murder and theft, he will finally know that this vanity belongs only to this world that is given by the Knowledge he does not have, by the dream of this Life running towards Death.
In the scriptures there is no such thing as righteous pride. It is always considered as a sin. We are not speaking of a wholesome view of self-worth, which is best established by a close relationship with God. But we are speaking of pride as the universal sin, as someone has described it.... Essentially, pride is a 'my will' rather than 'thy will' approach to life. The opposite of pride is humbleness, meekness, submissiveness, or teachableness.
The humbleness of a warrior is not the humbleness of the beggar. The warrior lowers his head to no one, but at the same time, he doesnt permit anyone to lower his head to him. The beggar, on the other hand, falls to his knees at the drop of a hat and scra
Ang Lee is fierce in his timidity, his humbleness and his respect for everyone around him. He's frustrating and so damn wise.
