45. Humility

Is the expansion of one's real reality
In a sweet, illumining and fulfilling way.
Is not the helpless surrender
To something or someone else.
Is not a frightened child.
Is real receptivity in us.
  If we receive with devoted humility,
Then immediately our receptivity-vessel increases.
Is the secret of secrets
  For self-expansion,
  For world-inspiration
  For world-transformation.
