Conventional: Seeing ourselves as lowly, sinful and unworthy (the root of the word is humus: earth or dirt). This, says the Course, is false humility or arrogance, for it says that we know who we are better than God does. ACIM: Realizing that on our own we know nothing, and so instead accepting God's definition of us as His infinitely glorious and holy Son (see W-pI.152.9), and accepting His definition of our function as being a savior of the world (see W-pI.61.1-3).
