Very difficult. When we are ignorant, we don’t know our lack of knowledge. Kids used to think that they know everything. When we get some knowledge, we feel that we are more important, more intelligent, more knowledgeable than other people. When we are acknowledged as specialists, with ownership of some diplomas, we claim to be possessors of exclusive truth. In all gatherings, we feel that we are worthy of highest thrones. It becomes very difficult for us to bow down before any masters!
In reality, only true masters realize that they are ignorant and willing to humble themselves before all other people. And proud human beings like us often inflate with arrogance in front of them. The number of modest people is always insignificantly small among mankind. This is the cause of war in the whole history of our immature past. And peace may be restored in this Age of maturity, starting in the 19th century.
True knowledge will lead us to the path of divine virtues.

Know thou that in this most hallowed and resplendent city thou shalt find the wayfarer to be lowly before all men and humble before all things. For naught doth he behold save that he perceiveth God therein. He beholdeth the effulgent glories of God in the lights of His Revelation that have encompassed the Sinai of creation. In this station the wayfarer must not claim the seat of honour in any gathering or walk before others in the desire to vaunt and exalt himself. Rather must he regard himself as standing at all times in the presence of his Lord.
(Baha’u’llah, Gems of Divine Mysteries, p. 60)
