Humility and haughtiness

投稿日:

I'm now lecturing upon the following ideal of humility in the lessons, "Humility is only one remove from haughtiness." Fortunately, many students and disciples have been seriously thinking about the essence of humility through my teaching very much.

Intrinsically speaking, a person who has real humility shall be rationally interpreted and treated as a "person of noble character.

Usually, people "ignorantly" try to be humble intentionally. Because those who ignorantly do it are just satisfied with "what they are doing in front of others." However, to be humble intentionally is not an action of real humbleness.

I'd like you to hereinafter imagine the following. If you try to be humble, actually, you are "not" a real humble person. Because you intentionally try to do it "for your self-satisfaction." A real humble person naturally takes action humbly (without any intention).

It is absolutely true that a person who has real humility based upon nobility beautifully communicates with other people all the time.

I received a wonderful postal card from my disciple, Ms. M.S. yesterday. I'd like to introduce it below.
