Most of that is derived through my relationships and understanding of other human beings. In other words, I realize it's not all about me...
I agree - I think there is an enormous wealth of natural humanity that has love and compassion in abundance for no higher purpose than the love and consideration of others.

Being humble or compassionate or altruistic is not exclusive to religious conviction.
