Only after we start to admit our addiction to certainty can we begin to actually benefit from our innate spiritual lives. Spirituality depends on humility.
Humility begins with admitting how short life is, how little time we have, how small our knowledge will ever be about the so-called big questions. It is in the moments of inner stillness that come from humility and unknowing that we can sense the presence of God.
