Transforming Arrogance Into Pure Humility
The drive to become enlightened is a noble pursuit. The problem is nobody knows what it means. But one thing for certain is it keeps the striving one alive. It keeps the battle going. But the willingness to be humbled, this is the true offering up of the ego and is the most beautiful of any possibility.
Being humbled is the transformation of arrogance into humility. It is the transformation of rigidity into softness, of something into nothing. When you are ready to desire nothing more, then you are the purity of Love Itself. The asking for nothing and the offering up of everything. Once this occurs, then what is discovered is that everything that was ever wanted starts raining from the sky but the very speaking of this can be counter productive because it can just keep the rat race of desiring and wanting going.
When the process of humbling is all that you want, then all the pressure is off. Then the striving becomes unnecessary. Then the goal-setting makes absolutely no sense. It is the realization that the life is just about being humbled , that it is all about the burning away of the ego and not about the desire for ecstasy.
This deepest humbling is the endless transformation of arrogance into humility. This results in the ever expanding taste of pure, unchanging Love. And every time there is a following of even one thought about 'me', the possibility is to be humbled into absolute humility. It is so beautiful, so pure and so true.
