Heroic Humility

"A person possesses heroic humility when promptly and easily he avoids vanity in dress, domination in conversation, or desire to impress. He experiences little difficulty in accepting correction -- indeed he desires it. He is content and at peace with accusation, neglect, blame, rejection."
~Thomas Dubay, SM: Authenticity

whoa...i have a long way to go. maybe i should extend my reservation for purgatory. i'll have to upgrade to the "extended stay" at the rate i'm going.

seriously though, thanks for sharing that earthie. provides much thought for contemplation.
