Writing and etymology in Korean
謙 (겸) [gyeom] – modest
遜 (손) [son] – modesty

Living in true love is living for others. It means giving to others before expecting something for yourself. It means giving and forgetting what you have given and expecting nothing in return. More than that, regretting not being able to give more. To live in humbleness and to live for others. That is the love of parents and the love of owners. This is what the heart of a Heavenly Parent is like.

Everything in nature exists and moves, following the natural cycle. The tree does not complain, even when the wind blows, and it snows. The earth takes everything: when people walk on it, trample on it, litter on it. In addition, if a seed falls into it, it must help it grow. If we take the example of nature, we will become very humble people.

Humbleness manifests itself in relationships. When we relate to others and respect them, then we are humble.

Arrogance is our enemy. Arrogance and the urge to insist on one’s own way are the root traits of egoism. Instead of being arrogant and insistent, we need to be modest and humble.

In harmony is born friendship. So be willing to reach agreement with everyone around you. If people cannot come to harmony and unite, there will be no development. Lack of harmony and agreement leads to stagnation. We must not succumb to envy or jealousy, which, together with arrogance and the desire to insist on one’s own, is the essence of egoistic nature.

Modesty is when we, while remaining at the bottom, attempt to elevate all others above ourselves.
