Humility

"The real test of being in the presence of God is that you either forget about yourself altogether or see yourself as a small dirty, object. It is better to forget about yourself altogether" - C. S. Lewis

In, Mere Christianity, C.S. Lewis points out that the centre of Christian morality is humility, but he makes a mistake when he says that this is unique to Christianity. In Buddhism, the concept of no-self is perfect humility. In some Christian texts, perfect humility is compared to complete silence, which in Buddhism would be known as emptiness.
