True change is only brought about through love, respect and honor for ourselves. If we continue to fight hate with hate, anger with anger, disrespect with disrespect, spew insults at insult spewers we will continue to go nowhere fast. If we continue to give into fear the world will be a place to fear.
The world changes when we do. If we are no different than the one we speak out about then we are the one that needs to change. When we all change the world changes. When we all love the world loves. When we all have respect for ourselves we will have respect for others. When we hold sacred honor for the true beings that we are then that is when we learn to hold the planet and all of her inhabitants in honor, for it is only then that we see from the depths of our souls that we are all ONE.
Is it yours? Do you choose to give your power away to what might be, what could be, what was done to someone else but not you, what happened a long time ago and might happen again. Do you choose to walk through this world wondering when the other shoe will drop, when you will be hurt, when you will not be able to afford something, when you will not be able to do something you’ve always done before. Do you choose to suffer to fear before anything has even occurred yet?
Coming to love ourselves is not about occasionally saying “yeah I love myself,” it’s not about doing the “right” thing, it’s not about eating the “right” thing, it’s not about feeling/saying/thinking the “right” thing. Loving ourselves completely is about BEcoming love, not about loving… when you BEcome LOVE, when you embody LOVE, you no longer seek it from outside yourself. You no longer find flaws in yourself or anyone else.
