The second Pillar of Joy is Humility from the Dalai Lama. The funny thing about humility is that as soon as we think we’ve got it — we don’t! Reducing our attachment to our identity can help us grow in humility. Also, having a learner’s attitude to life can be helpful. Both of our spiritual teachers from The Book of Joy share their perspectives (Remember “perspective”? It’s the first Pillar of Joy) on humility.
