GOD IN ME ATTRACTS OTHERS
True humility comes from assuredness, from knowing that we abide in God and therefore have nothing to assert and nothing to defend. Our humility is not submissive but rather attractive, in the literal sense. People are drawn to us because we seem to offer refuge amidst the worldly tumult.
Make it a goal in your daily rounds to disarm others. If you know the answer where others are confused, then offer it in an understated way, as a possibility. Without becoming taciturn, use silence as a way of making your point. Sow your ideas and let them emerge through others, as though they were theirs. Always listen to what someone is saying, let them finish before responding. All this may seem superficial, but its Origin gives it strength.
Above all, never brandish your beliefs. God, His prophets and their inspired words do not need you to protect them. Holy war is a contradiction in itself. God judges no-one but has built His law into the world. By our thoughts, feelings, words and deeds we judge ourselves.
