Real Humility Means No Enemies

 A practical way to calculate our personal level of humility is to notice the extent to which we maintain the mindset of friends and enemies. Kṛṣṇa has said that one who is dear to Him has neither enemies nor friends. Even if someone acts as our enemy, we do not have to view them as such. Not having enemies does not mean that we are in denial, or that we avoid addressing improper behavior. We address issues out of love and with humility by speaking truthfully. At the same time, we should try not to see others as enemies, whether they agree with us or not.
