The fifth of the ten Greatest Tao Qualities is Greatest Humility. Humility is at the center of the spiritual path and refers to the state of being humble. Humble people do not rank themselves above anyone else, and possibly rank themselves as lower (in service to). Master Sha has often mentioned the humble and unconditional service of water, which flows to the lowest places and collects the dirt and garbage. Water does not complain. It just serves.
In the best selling book: Soul Over Matter, Master Sha shares the Tao wisdom of humility, stating that humility brings about great benefit, while pride (or ego) reduces success. To be humble is to be soft and weak - do not fight, strive or argue. Weak and delicate things have great tenacity. A drop of water can go through stone. Strong things may appear strong, but their strength could be limited.Master Sha shares that Tao creates everyone and everything, but controls no one and nothing. Tao gives everyone freedom to walk their own path. Tao does not fight or argue with anyone. This is the wisdom of Greatest Humility. Do not fight. Be persistent. Forge ahead vigorously and dedicate yourself to progress. Humility is our strength. If we lose it, we fall into the deepest cavern.
Empirical research on humility shows that it has great value, associated with better academic performance, job performance and excellence in leadership. Humble people have better social relationships, avoid deception and tend to be more forgiving, grateful and cooperative. Humility is also associated with greater self-esteem and is a consistent predictor of generosity, associated with many forms of pro-social behavior. Humility can buffer the effects of competition in relationships and perhaps for this reason, it is a distinguishing characteristic of successful CEO's.
On the spiritual path, humility is a signpost of greater enlightenment. To develop humility is to transform the ego. To be humble is to have deference to a power greater than oneself.
