Dignity Through Humility


Malchut of Hod


Hi everyone, Jordan Drayer, the savvy millennial voice actress who is learning to express humility in a dignified manner. Today is four weeks and seven days of the Omer. If you want to know more about the Omer and how it works, check out the links in the description.


Today is the last day of Hod, looking at Malchut of Hod, the majesty of humility. Our being humble should leave us feeling dignified. It is being at peace with ourselves, knowing we are important even if others seem more so in the moment. It is cheering even your competitors on, all the while knowing you are also worthy of the award or promotion. Maybe you're just not skilled enough for it, or there's nepotism, or who knows, and maybe they really don't deserve the award. If this is the case, calmly and clearly state why you're better, not from arrogance but from healthy humility, which also means taking up the right space.

Take up the right space


I am learning with each year since leaving my parents' nest how to stand up for myself and take up my right space. I guess everyone uses their 20's to really find themselves, and for me, this has involved re-learning how to argue and say no. But I also now see my parents as human, with their own dignity. While I was angry and blamed them a lot in the beginning of therapy and becoming more spiritual, I don't anymore. I see them for who they are and have bittersweet feelings. I would not force them to feel bad about themselves. Humility that denies individual sovereignty is not humility.


Today's exercise is to teach someone how modesty and humility add to human dignity. You could teach a child how annoying it is to hear someone brag all the time. Maybe recount a story where someone else's modesty made you feel good about yourself. Even complimenting people could be an act of humility, as you acknowledge something remarkable about another, as long as you expect nothing in return. For a long time, I thought I was boring, so anyone telling me I was cool and interesting was a huge boost. Words have an impact.


Thank you so much for making it through five weeks. We only have two more left, so let's finish strong! We've bonded over these last five weeks, and that's what we'll focus on with the sixth, bonding. Please like, and there's still time to share, and I'll see you tomorrow.
