“As long as you are proud you cannot know GOD. A proud man is always looking down on things and people: and, of course, as long as you are looking down you cannot see something that is above you.” ― C.S. Lewis.
Remembering always, how you walked in through that door, would ignite a sense of check and balance against giving room for pride to grow in you. No doubt, some of us where born into unequivocal affluence, while some of us were born into middle class or out-rightly poor families. However, the material state in which we were born into, does not change the fact that we all individually walked into this world with no material gifts. Thus, just as we had no power to choose which families we were born into, neither do we have the power even this day to assume the role of gods over the future.
Pondering on the above, it is only honourable that in whatever high state we find ourselves today, one should never keep walking like there is no ground below nor have any such notion that our achievements were/are by our sole-abilities. Thus, when we bend to look towards the ground, we shouldn't look to the ground to further 'oppress' but rather, we should always look to the ground to offer 'upliftment', that those who having being uplifted, may be able to offer upliftment to others as well.
We all need this consciousness.
