Humility expanded.

So I played a role in the life of Siddharta Gautama, one of the Budahs.
During a conversation with him god inspired me to suggest something. It turned out to be a revelation for him and one of his most important practices particularly for liberation from discomfort.

Feel all that you are and all of the discomfort that exists for you in this moment.
Build Desire to do this at all times.

He just reminded me of how we spoke about this after he died, and how he felt at the time that it was absolutely what he needed to hear, the best thing he could be working on. He also marvelled about how at the time of saying this I Methuselah had not thought about humility in this way, and that God had inspired me during the conversation.

It is quite a different look at humility, and as Siddharta suggests a pathway to understanding reality.
