 “Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth” (Matthew 5:5). 

Starting to understand this statement.  Kindness, patience, and love will make The Earth a better place, at the very least.  The Master of humility in action:  a new person came into the ashram with a group.  Socks, as I learned early on, a no-no, sitting too close to Gurudev's door, a no-no, (not sure how you would know that in advance either), and no greeting of pranam.  I wasn't in that position too long ago.  The good news, he was there and quietly taking it all in thoughtfully.  Gurudev happened to need to go into his room. Did He make any fuss about the young man being in the way or the inappropriateness of his attire--no.  He just opened the door part way and made himself as narrow as possible and sidled sideways through the opening.
