The Confidence to be Humble

The other day I sat in a webinar where I heard LL Cool J say something very close to the following:

Humility is a super power. And I’m not talking about pseudo humility, where you are sitting at the back pew of the church thinking you should be sitting in the front. I’m talking about real humility – having the confidence to be humble; embracing your humanity.

Last year in April I walked the labyrinth at the basement of Marble Collegiate Church.

Labyrinth
Labyrinth

This is what I wrote during that walk:

 

Go forward in sacredness

 

You do not go forward

without the sacredness /

unless you invite the sacredness

 

How sacred and special

this Life is

 

Every part is just as

valuable as every other part

Before you know it,

you’re there.

It’s the journey that is sacred

There is no piece that is more valuable than any other

It is all sacred space

This is a sacred walk.

Life, is a sacred walk.

Stand still, until you

feel, acknowledge,

Breath the sacredness

with every breath:

If the breath is not sacred,

stand still until it is,

until you can walk with

sacred breath again.

The path will always have

difficulty, that is the

nature of the path.
