…exploration into reality

“I kneel on the ground, my hands in the dirt, and think of humus: earth, the root word for humility.  Humility is simply being earthed in God, or as Ester de Waal translates it, an “exploration into reality.” If we are found in God, rooted in God, we see our need and our value in the most real way. Humility becomes the “ruthless campaign against all forms of illusion.”

-Micha Boyett, “Found”
