of sparks and souls

True humility comes from recgonizing the importance of others coupled with one's own insignificance.

In truth, our Neshamoth are all connected, each Neshama is comprised of a unique point as well as parts of all the other Neshamoth that have ever been created.

When we see that such a large part of our own Neshama is actually made up of everyone else's Neshamoth, it should make us aware of how great and important everyone else is.

When we see what an insignificant portion of another person's soul is composed of a little piece of our soul it should make us aware of our own smallness.

Contemplation of this idea can lead to great Ahavat Yisrael.
