Food for Our Minds and Spirits: You Aren’t Where You Think You Are

Humility is good for the world. A humble person is more empathetic, more aware of “the other,” more able to be awed by the world around them. A humble person is less likely to see themselves as the center of the universe. A humble person is more likely to have eyes and ears and a heart that is wide open to new experiences. Humility is good for ourselves.

I also love that religion AND science both have a way of teaching us humility. Religion can teach it in the form of fully seeing another person for who they are, for reminding us how many people are around us, for reminding us how not all of the questions that face us get answered. Science can do all of this for us as well, but the other thing science can do is remind us how small we are in the grand scheme of the universe. This video does just that, and its a reminder that if we are careful enough to be humble, we have good reason to be. You can watch it (and read about it!) here at Laughing Squid.
