Humility, being open and receptive to all experience, is the key to becoming one with the spontaneous patterns of the universe
• Integrates classic teachings of Hinduism and Buddhism with principles of quantum physics to reveal the science of the enlightened masters
• Reveals how we are each capable of shifting from the aggressive path of the warrior to the humble path of the sage
• Explains how the key to catching the current acceleration of conscious evolution is humility
From Krishna and Lao-tzu to Buddha and Jesus, each enlightened master discovered how being receptive to all experience was the key to becoming one with the universe and its spontaneous patterns of order and chaos. Revealing humility as the purest expression of this receptivity, Jason Gregory integrates classic teachings of Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, and Hermeticism with principles from quantum physics to explain the science of humility as practiced by the ancient masters.
The author shows how, driven by fear, the human mind creates the ego. In its greedy and arrogant quest to protect the self and its desires, the ego forges the illusion of separation, weaving complex patterns of reality that shield us from our unity with all beings and result in attitudes of aggression, selfishness, and competition. He reveals how the iconic clash between this complex, aggressive “path of the warrior” and the simple “path of the sage” is reflected in the polarized state of the modern world. Yet this state also reflects the accelerating wave of conscious evolution we are now experiencing. The key to catching this evolutionary wave is humility: the reversal of complexity into simplicity, the ancient science of mental alchemy that represents the Great Work of Eternity.

The art which the ancient masters of our past lived by and expressed is a transparent state of consciousness that is a riddle dwelling deep inside the mind of humanity. From the life of Krishna to Lao Tzu, and from Gautama the Buddha to Jesus of Nazareth onto Ramana Maharshi of the modern era, all possessed a universal axiom that secretly transforms the individual and humanity. Enlightenment is the common motif associated with such masters either literally or in parable, yet nevertheless, what was the discovery they acquired to facilitate this illumination? Hidden deep within the annals of time is a science that the enlightened masters revealed within themselves that brings their life into accord with the laws, patterns and principles of the universe.
The Science and Practice of Humility outlines the knowledge of how humility itself is a direct science that an individual can live by, which aligns one with the natural function of the universe. The natural principles and patterns of the universe are not temporary phenomena that exist isolated outside of the human-being, as most institutions erroneously believe. But instead the universal principles and patterns are found within the consciousness of the individual, whether that be physical, mental or spiritual, the principles and patterns are there for all to see in The Science and Practice of Humility.
The modern idea that we need to force ourselves upon life to be successful is actually against the flow and function of how the universe expresses itself. The Science and Practice of Humility demonstrates how the spontaneous nature of the universe corresponds to us being receptive to all experience, and in this core teaching it illustrates to the individual that humility is the human expression of this receptivity which leads to the authentic comprehension of how evolution and enlightenment are intimately related.
