True Humility

True humility comes with the realization that your entire person, your best and worst, your highest and lowest, all that you are, is useful only to serve others. That it's not about you.

We should have little use either for conceit or self-hatred. Conceit makes us lose our way, to start thinking that maybe it really is about us. So does self-hatred. If it's not about you, then it's not about you. Forget about thinking too highly or lowly of yourself. The problem is, you think of yourself instead of your service. When your wants and needs are absorbed into your cause, your mission of service, then true peace and humility comes. You live your design.
