The Road to Humility

SYMBOLICAL of Humility, the valley road winds upward until it emerges into the sunshine of higher land. Therefore our new found good or right thinking tends to raise us above the lower level of personal sense bringing to us realization of spiritual realty.

When we read in St. Matthew, "I am meek and lowly in heart," we think, "What does meekness mean?" I like to think that we can become meek by pricking the bubbles of self will, self pity, self justification, self love. By bursting these bubbles and not allowing them to form again, we can arrest our alcoholism indefinitely. We need a change of consciousness. We can effect this change by having faith in God or if you wish, a power greater than ourselves.
