I really don’t know how to be humble.

Reading the wonderful Matt Kahn’s book, Whatever Arises, Love That. (Great title, eh?) So, the main message is to send love to whatever comes up in your experience, which is what Eckhart Tolle, my friend Leta Hamilton, and many others agree is one of the most useful spiritual practices you can do.

And man, I super suck at it.

I don’t love a lot of things. A whole lot of things. My ego is just always–right–there. I can’t let go of my opinion long enough to love what is, even though I know that doing so is the core definition of humility.

I really don’t know how to be humble. But I’m working on it.

After Rachel and Matthew had their first child, they had a couple of fights. Well, okay, more than a couple—they fought for over three years. They fought about schedules. They fought about bad habits. They even fought about the lawn mower. And besides actually having their child, it was the best thing that could've happened.

  1. Could you start by saying, “I love that I don’t love this.” The key is to de-layer our emotions. Even if we are not happy about something, we don’t have to be unhappy we are unhappy. We can start by saying, “I love the fact that I am really not happy about this.” It gives us space to see that all things are there for expansion within the soul. As difficult as that may be for us when we are faced with truly horrific or unpleasant situations, it is the start of internal liberation.

    1. Right now i am doing something like that daily. My meditation is, I am feeling — about –. Just noticing what is there. It separates me from it a lot! Bug loving that i dont lkve ig? Hmmm… I will try that.
