Humility and Acceptance with Lao Tzu
January 24, 2022 by Kathleen Mary Willis
I’ve been listening to Lao Tzu this week for deeper understandings of the blessing and virtue of humility to share on my Wednesday Zoom class.
I Love Lao Tzu. He is kind and quiet – balanced; he is helping me with my balance.
I asked about guilt and control. This is what came:
Most of us have played many roles on Earth, many many lifetimes, victim, perpetrator, everything in between. . .
The victim and the perpetrator attract each other with the laws of physics because of lack of self-love and self-worth, and often there is a life plan.
The sacred dance, learning Who We Are, often comes from learning what doesn’t work, the wisdom gained from suffering, whatever the experience is.
With deep humility comes knowing the value of self, that non-judgement of everything, of all the lifetimes — no controlling feelings of guilt — the realization we have played many roles.
With that non-judgement of self comes the non-judgement of others.
From Loving our journeys, with all their ups and downs, we do the same for others, that non-judgement of everyone’s journey.
Our role is to Love everyone, to let the old systems of judgement fall away, within and without.
We can start with Loving our body just the way it is, then automatically extending that to everyone — that acceptance.
I’m finding the tears are readily flowing as deeper understandings come to the surface, lifetimes of adventures, good, bad and ugly.
The belief systems that are not of love, that don’t work are really dissolving now, so the creation of what does work can emerge more fully.
In our outer world the public protesting, the inner/outer movements around #MeToo, oil and gas, climate change, and racism define what isn’t working; from chaos comes change.
The pandemic forced us inside to contemplate: What is this virus? Has it emerged to help us let go judgement of self/others? For that deeper acceptance? What is my purpose here Now?
Humility as defined by Lao Tzu on Heavenly Blessings radio show through Linda Dillon, channel for the Council of Love, is:
Our willingness to extend ourselves to others
— realizing we are extending ourselves to All —
with true understanding it is a privilege to serve
knowing we are an instrument of Love.
Thank you, Lao Tzu.
In this series of the Wednesday Zoom class, I help explain how Divine Qualities help us create balance within for our Ascension, for the creation of a world that works for everyone.
This week I show how humility relates to our chakras and Universal Law, that deep acceptance of everyone’s value.
