Quote of the Week: Humility

"Humility is an essential ingredient in life because it provides a kenosis, an emptying of the self--the very desert spirit of letting go . . . At its core, humility dramatically opens up a beautiful space in our inner life:

a space for simplicity amidst the complex demands of both home and office;
a space for solitude to listen to the messages of our quiet spirit lest they
             be drowned out by the day's noise;
a space for pacing ourselves while resisting the lure of speed and new technology;
a space for gratefulness and gifted-ness in a world filled with a sense of entitlement."
