From the Spiritual Diary, February 25, Humility: If your work in life is humble, do not apologize for it. Be proud because you are fulfilling the duty given you by the Father. He needs you in your particular place; all people cannot play the same role. So long as you work to please God all cosmic forces will harmoniously assist you. - Paramahansa Yogananda, "The Law of Success"
