Genuine humility flows from the deep-seated recognition that you cannot save yourself, that you are created and not Creator, that you are the effect and not cause (in an absoloute sense), that something called Life is not yours, that there is something beyond your capacity of containment and intellectual understanding. And if that something ever decided to give up loving you, you would cease to be.
What I learned
Up until this point, Jeshua has been helping me to accept my grandeur, to know that I am a holy Son of God and powerful beyond my understanding. Now he is telling me not to allow myself to move from grandeur to grandiosity. This is a real temptation and one that Jeshua said he, too, had to guard against.
The more this study is put into practice, the more my life shows the effects of it. Other people want some of the same thing and this is good. They come to me and ask questions, ask for help getting to the place that I am. It is easy to start thinking that I know something and to believe that I have done a great thing. But I have not done a thing. I did not make myself the holy Son of God. I did not create the vast mind of the Son. I did not create the potential and the ability to create (that is to continue the extension of Love). All that I have done is to remove that which blocks Love and allows me to express God. I am a conduit for God, and this is a glorious thing, but I am not the Source of this glory. It is absolutely essential that I remember this.
