Perek Shira: The Waters Sing The Powerful Song Of Humility
Rabbeinu Bachaya in VaYikra (2:13) quotes the medrash that says that when Hashem created the world and separated the upper waters from the lower waters, the lower waters began to cry. They were sent away from their lofty abode in Shamayim down on to this lowly world. The Gemara in Taanis (7a) says that water is the symbol of humility. No matter where it is, it always goes down to to the lowest spot.
The crashing of the waves in the sea is so powerful that according to a study done five years ago, it causes the equivalent of a 5.7 magnitude earthquake. This is the noise of the broken heart. This is the roar of humility of the water, who not only left its lofty place in Shamayim, but even on earth finds itself in the lowest point. The gemara Megila (31a) tell us that where ever we find the greatness of Hashem, there we also find His humility. Hashem's greatness is most evident in Shamayim, therefore so is His humility most evident there.
The water sings "MiKolos Mayim Rabim Adirim Mishbirei Yam", greater than the sounds of the great (and humble) waters that are so powerful that it break the seas, "Adir BaMarom Hashem", Hashem, even as he sits in the highest of heaven, makes far more noise with his humility. Since both His greatness and humility go hand in hand and give a seismic shake to the world.
The lesson here is that humility is greatness, and they both cause a ruckus that no one can miss. What you won't achieve with haughtiness and arrogance, you will achieve with humility. Even the hard of hearing will hear your message loud and clear.
