“In love, there is a total acceptance of self, and a willingness to give of self without an expectation of receiving anything in return. When you love, you are not afraid to share the truth of who you are, and you accept the truth of others without judgment.”
Self-acceptance feels so good, everyone should try it at least once in his or her lifetime. When you do this, you will experience a miracle. The miracle is that your life will start to improve more than before. Why is that? For a start, when you accept yourself, you no longer reject yourself, judge yourself, belittle yourself, or negate yourself, for example. Moreover, self-acceptance activates the law of attraction.
Three simple words, “I am worthy”. But so challenging for most of us to SPEAK and to acknowledge. Owning our self-worth, however, is the only way to tap into, AWAKEN and activate our spiritual power.
Without recognition that we were made in the image and likeness of the Divine — and are therefore worthy of all that God is — we cannot be a reflection of God’s Light and Love here on earth. We also cannot expect others to acknowledge in us what we cannot embrace.
“Solitude is a refuge in which you can work through distressing thoughts and recharge your spirit. When you are alone, you are free to fully experience your thoughts and emotions. You can use your energy to delve more deeply into your inner self and understand what you are going through. When you spend time in solitude, there are few distractions to get in the way of your desire to concentrate on your needs and regain your equilibrium. Yours is the only voice you will be called upon to heed, and you can use your time engaging in activities that you find elevating and spiritually fulfilling. Embracing solitude today will help you understand your feelings and lift your spirit.”
The Daily Om – 12/29/12 “Alone with Yourself”
The Daily Om has been on a serious roll with its messages about the benefits of “me” time for those like me of the Leo persuasion. I am generally more withdrawn, quiet and pensive during these final days of any given year. But this year the draw inward seems particularly acute and the push from external circumstances beyond my control or understanding have led me to a self-imposed and well deserved timeout.
The yearning to envelop myself with peace and stillness in the midst of all the issues, concerns, demands, disappointments and to-dos swirling around me is a call to which I surrender gratefully. And the reason is simple. Quite frankly, I’m tired! Well, actually, the better way to phrase it is I desire rest. The type of rest found only in solitude with me, myself and I.
