+ My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble mind.
-- Albert Einstein

+ Humility is a wonderful thing.  If you do not already know that, I hope these 16 posts on the practice of humility will convince you of its power and joy.  And if you do, then I hope you will be inspired anew and motivated to go even more deeply into this practice.

+ Einstein isn’t the only one who advocates humility for humans.  In this exploration of the essential spiritual practice of humility, we will encounter a host of wisdom teachers who tell us how important practicing humility is.  Jesus to name one.  The prophet Micah.  The prophet  Muhammad.  The apostles Paul and James.  That great Sufi teacher, Hazrat Inayat Khan.  The Dalai Lama.  Rachel Carson.  That InterSpirituality pioneer, Brother Wayne Teasdale.  Rumi.  Richard Rohr.  Father Thomas Keating.  Ramakrishna.  Joseph Naft.  St. Benedict.  St. Francis. Henri Nouwen.  Rabbi  Rami Shapiro.  Judge Learned Hand.

Spirituality and Practice offers a wonderful 12s gallery of images and quotes on Humility.
