Wednesday Wisdom

Core human values or spirituality in practice

When we say core human values, we think of the fundamental, positive, human qualities that all humanity has in common, at our core, and are therefore universal. Qualities that we are all drawn to, that give meaning to our life and our relationships. Love, care, loyalty, honesty, courage, fairness, kindness, wisdom etc. become qualities we want to protect, encourage and live by. Their power lies in being universal and limitless, unconfined by cultural traditions or belief systems. Universal and all-embracing means spiritual, like a thread that runs through all living beings; a connectedness that requires no introduction.

What does core human values or spirituality look like in practice? How can spiritual principles guide and help us in our daily life?

 

Humility is greatness

Humility is not subservience or undervaluing myself, but the ability to recognise and bow in front of the greatness of others with true appreciation. Humility emerges when I respect myself, not for my roles or my achievements, but by recognising what I am inside, a well-wishing peaceful being and not dependent on approval from others.
