Innate Humility, a Priceless Commodity

Illawarra District, Australia, January 16, 2019.
Teacher: The Damascus Scribe.
Subject: “Innate Humility, a Priceless Commodity.”

Message received by George Barnard.

The Scribe: “There are those who stand in front of a crowd and shout, ‘Me first!’ and there are those who simply wait their turn, because it will come. Humility is indeed a priceless commodity and it is one of the most treasured personality traits your celestial Teachers detect in their favorite Urantia human charges.

“To us (Celestials) humility is born of a knowledge of precisely who you are and that you have worth — such a person need not prove anything to the self or to others. Humility is also patient — that which is wished for will come about if it is meant to be. And humility sees all others as equals — how could it be otherwise?

“For us (Celestials) humility must not be equated with low self-esteem as such is a damaging trait even we dislike. For one whose life and career is settled there is every reason to know the satifaction of humility and the appreciation others have for him or her.

“This is the trait humility is not; humility is not a lack of well-placed pride in what one has learned or learned to do, although simply not proclaiming or asserting it — a false pride. Humility is an innate humbleness an innate modesty.

“Our kind of humility belongs to one who owns that priceless commodity, is a ‘group annimal’ by nature and who knows and accepts that the distant future will bring ever greater associations in which all will be diversely talented, yet seen as equal to any in the group.

“To us humility is patient and not outspoken, but may carefully weigh up a solution to a vexing problem and quietly offer same. Achieve and remain humble, be a leader and remain modest. I am Sananda, the Damascus Scribe, your humble Teacher and Friend forever.”
