A good deal of my subconscious time is spent trying to figure out the trick. Things are working spiritually, and I need to know why. But I think if I actually saw the blueprint of what everything’s about, all questions answered, it’d be akin to showing a dog a card trick.
I’m attempting a month of humility:
Humility simply requires a man to think of his abilities and his actions as no greater, and no lesser, than they really are. Real humility then mandates that a man knows and is completely honest with himself.
The gears are running, whizzing, really, and there are times when I honestly think it’s a good idea to stick my hand in there, to figure it out. It’s happening much less frequently, thanks to the steps. But if the gear analogy was factual, I’d have been out of fingers long ago.
And I come at the idea of understanding the trick behind humility with an agenda. Once I know how to use the switch, I can control when I flip it. I want to choose when I’m humble? Just pull a quarter out from behind someone’s ear and boom – humility?
It’s not so much about knowing what’s behind the curtain. It’s trusting you don’t need to look.
