Proud people imagine they are great, and always see themselves rising above others. But in reality, they themselves are not growing, a tumour is developing inside of them.
To inflate themselves is not the same as growing.
A person’s true growth causes rays, sparks, and vibrations beneficial to everyone to spring forth from them, and only humility fosters this growth.
One of life’s great secrets thus lies in this so rarely understood and appreciated virtue: humility – the awareness that there exists a superior world and the will to be in harmony with the entities that inhabit it: the angels, archangels, and so on, up to God.
This is why it can be said that humility is a form of intelligence. By casting their gaze upwards, a humble person discovers the infinity of heaven and feels drawn to it, absorbed by it.
By simply changing the direction of their gaze, they enter into immensity.
