Virtue Series – Part 7
Humility – connotes the absence of arrogance, snobbishness, selfishness, pride, boastfulness and self-satisfaction. Humility does not imply weakness; rather is the result of strength, power and true personal completeness so that one need not feel he must contend for a place in the sun. Similarly, meekness is the absence of wrath, and it stems from a sense of complete control over one’s environment. Humility is the awareness of one’s shortcomings in view of the knowledge that Virtue always recedes from one’s present standing and that one has far to go to achieve Mastery.
