Feeling a bit out of alignment (I.e., like crap), I delved into finding out what was keeping me down. It was a lack of self love. I came across the following and I felt better after reading it. I’ll share it with you.
“I do believe that we are all an act of love brought forth from the loins of the creator who or whatever that may be for you. And as I seek on a daily basis to observe love in action, be it in the gurgle of a happy baby or the magnificence of a sunset, I learn to become more gentle with myself. I learn that the ego keeps me in judgment of my imperfections, crazily believing that I must be perfect to be worthy of love. As my harshest critic I begin to see a softening and a wisdom entering into the inner conversation that has kept me separate from the thing that I desire most. The truth is that you can’t attract love into your life unless you love yourself warts and all, or in my case, large behind. I grow tired of the war I wage within and now only want peace and love and to quest to discover even greater exalted experiences of divinity. Now I know that this is my purpose, the same as it is for everyone. No matter where you are on your journey to love, the focus always remains with the self. Cut yourself some slack, give yourself a break, forgive everything you are not proud of and just, in this moment, feel the love that is always and ever available to you. Then go out and share your loving self with the rest of the world and shine. Namaste.”
