True humility, an integral part of all authentic spiritual paths, is the awareness of the finite in the presence of the infinite. By putting teachings into practice, we cultivate an insight that enables us to see beyond forms. The eye of the heart sees things as they truly are. As we go further along the path, we find that ultimately the Doer is none other than the One Divine Source. We learn about true surrender and alignment and find our deepest calling – the most important thing in this life.
