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.
Yep, so I’m a big ole gamer. I started off with my mom buying one of the first Mac’s on the market and played goofy little games on it. Well really, there was Atari first and then Zork and maybe a few others I don’t remember. Eventually I got into MUD’s which are text based games on the web where a bunch of people join in the game. Everyone has their own character; we pick races, professions, magic or non, weapons, skills and so forth. Most of the first ones were based off of D&D which in turn was based off of the Hobbit/Lord of the Rings and other books in the genre. One of the biggest things in these games is to not be OOC, or Out Of Character. In other words if I’m playing I don’t suddenly say “OMG did you see last night’s SNL skit?” or something to that affect. Nope in these games we want to RP or Role-play our characters to fit what others see of them on screen so that they match up to the ideal troll, ogre, elf, magician, thief, warrior, etc.
When my mom died I went through a ton of different emotions. For a while they were all surface things about what had happened, what our last words were, who was there, who wasn’t there and so on. I was a few years into Higher Consciousness and I was attempting to apply everything I knew about looking at the stories, the emotions, the things my head was saying to me to work through it. I knew I had anger because I was cussing and bitching about a few things. I knew I had pain because the tears would come every once in awhile. I knew I had guilt because I would hear myself degrade myself.

I'm referring to these as "advanced" only because it took me a long time to understand some of these and I'm not entirely sure of my explanation of them. Also, these are not concepts that I took to early in my awakening, it was more of a "okay [whatever person I'm listen/reading at the time] you had me until here." So, for many of you, you may read these and think I'm more of a crackpot than you thought! You will though, in time, come back to them and understand them (believe me, I did it). Others might get these right away, they may trigger another aha moment or you have enough faith in your gut feelings (higher knowings) that they register right off the bat. Either way, know that everything is perfect in how it comes to you for your journey.
