attitude Breathing-Fragile-Life humility Joan Winifred never giving up!

4 plus google plus

Every day we encounter people who cross our path…1. person to whom spoke today…haven’t met someone quite like this in a while…he was polite…trying to be “nice”?…and i do not want to be too judgmental, BUT…the word description popping in my mind is “ARR!ogant.”

which reminds me of this previously posted post…(perhaps, it was “good” for me…to speak with someone not so easily persuaded. The convinced talking to the convinced?!;) The not-so-easily pushed-over talking to the not-so-easily pushed-over! We both felt we were in the right.)

In case You’re wondering, ended (mind-duel) conversation on a nice-note…just before the impending (touche) SNAP.

8. humble & haughty  (published July 19, 2016 google plus)

     nice & naughty

(low/high minded)

“ta·pei·no·phro·syʹne” …(Insights on this word & Ancient Wisdom)…

Greek: “humility” and “lowliness of mind.” “It is drawn from the words ta·pei·noʹo, “make low,” and phren, “the mind.”

“[…] But all of you clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because God opposes the haughty ones, but he gives undeserved kindness to the humble ones.” (1 Peter 5:5)

“One who humbles himself before God can expect to have God’s guidance.”

“Before a crash the heart of a man is lofty, and before glory there is humility.” (Proverbs 18:12)

“Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.” (Matthew 23:12)

“I am mild-tempered and lowly in heart.” (Matthew 11:29)

“Humility promotes peace. A humble person does not fight […] in order to establish his supposed personal “rights.” The apostle {Paul} argued that, though he had freedom to do all things, he would do only the things that are upbuilding, and if a brother’s conscience was bothered by his personal actions, he would refrain from that practice.—Ro 14:19-21; 1Co 8:9-13; 10:23-33.”

“It also requires humility to keep the peace by putting into practice Jesus’ counsel to forgive others their […] offenses against us. (Mt 6:12-15; 18:21, 22) And when one person offends another, it tests his humility to obey the command to go to the other person and admit the wrong, asking forgiveness. (Mt 5:23, 24)” (excerpted: Insight on Scriptures Vol. 1 “Humility”)

humility (and cultivating this positive trait) is “a” (1) solution to a lot of (self-inflicted) problems…and global issues (in my POV).

{life works like this..you either humble yourself or adversity or an outside (of yourself) force/source will.}

to be humble does NOT mean to be weak! it takes a strong person to forgive, tweak, change, pursue peace with all fragile-life. ( i.e. put anger aside or personal preferences)…Sometimes/(at times) it’s easy to be naughty…and hard to be nice!:)

valuing “compassion” (and the multi-wellness benefits it brings to everyone) forces me to evaluate my (heart/mind) choices today & every day:

will i be nice? (am i nice?)
