Humble describes a man who doesn’t have any ideas about himself. In this respect, he’s like a child. Children don’t say “I’m this” or “I’m that.” They just are. Undefined, unconditioned and free.
Man is pure when desireless, simple when fearless.
We behave perfectly when we act spontaneously. Even in our judicial courts, where spontaneity wears a wig, allowances are made when gathered evidence suggests an absence of premeditation.
We cannot renovate the mask-like fear-based personality. The most we can do with this fragile shell of a self is step out of it, as chicks do after a period of assiduous pecking.
Do not raise your sons to be your sons. They’re vaster than that.
