When you become the other, then you cease to be.
What the hell does this mean? When everyone you see is a part of you, then judgement ceases. You don't judge if they are better off, or worst off.
When you give the homeless a quarter or a hand out and you think "poor guy," then you are judging. Not that it's a horrible thing, we all do it. When you see that homeless person and you recognize they are a part of you, (because everything in essence is a part of everything,) there is no longer judgement, or barriers.
As far as that saying goes about "There for the grace of God go you" To me that just means we were created to reflect the grace of God, so go and do it already.
The only thing I know about humility is this, once I think i'm humble, well guess what? I'm not.
Why is this Ch related? I don't know. It takes our mind off of cluster headaches for a bit at least. :-)
