What is Humbleness?

Q: What is humbleness from the perspective of the Creator?

A: Humbleness is the most important trait. There is a special chapter in the Zohar called “The Book of Humbleness” (Safra de Tzniuta). This is the book of those who have a screen. Through the screen, we become like the Creator, precisely in the attribute of humbleness! This happens because we suppress our own nature and place the Creator above ourselves.

Humbleness demands of man to be aware of the lowness of our own nature, and to aspire to acquire the nature of the Creator – the attribute of giving, bestowing. Humbleness is the ability to activate our own nature to enjoy with the intent not for ourselves.
