I'm not sure how you see humility as relating to submission odysseus.
I mean instead of being humble, you suddenly lose all energy/force - that´s what I meant by submission.
That is being defeated.
Being humble is willingness to do things as instructed by somebody that knows the correct way of doing something. (Enlightened awareness and the practice of Dharma in this case). It predicated on the understanding that "I'm going to do it MY way!" is faulty and leads to suffering.
