Humility as Nothing to Defend by Jeff Foster

Humility as Nothing to Defend

By Jeff Foster

I find truth in anything anyone ever says about me, so nobody can be my enemy.
Call me a fraud, I can find it. Call me a liar, I can find it. Call me a failure, I can find it.
Call me unreasonable, irresponsible, ignorant, deluded, full of ego, totally unenlightened,
the worst being in the world, I can find all of it.
As consciousness, I can find anything.
Like you, I have nothing to hide, nothing to lose, and no image to protect.
Every possible facet of human experience is available here.
This is truly the end of war.
It is the end of protecting and defending a mirage called ‘me’.
So, next time you get triggered by something someone says to you or about you,
ask yourself this: “What am I defending?”
This inquiry is the key to unimaginable peace.
Deep gratitude to anyone who has ever given me any kind of feedback.

  1. Reblogged this on "Isle of View" and commented:
    Jeff speaks aptly. Puts an entirely new spin on not taking things personally or rather recognizing the truth and letting it go.

  2. I had this realization come to me the other day… What if there were nothing to defend? It is liberating to find this and see there is something to it. 🙂

  3. Thanks Candia for reading. You know I am your biggest fan, so it’s nice that you are with my too, reading my blogs. Love you much. Thanks for reposting. I of course felt moved by Jeff’s poem and therefore borrowed it hoping others would be moved too. Blessings to you always, Joss

  4. Thank you Peacefulpresents for reading and commenting. I do believe many of us are getting ‘downloaded’ with the same spiritual messages so we can then spread the word. Thank you for sharing and for spreading the word. We are each a strong link to a very big chain all around the world. Many blessings to you, Joss
