Whether you live in the US or not, considering everything that is going on in the world right now, this is the perfect week to connect deeply into gratitude and being thankful for all that you have.
While I don’t have all the answers to how we can change our world, I do know one important component of the healing of the world: YOU.
YOU have a sacred responsibility to love yourself deeply.
You have a sacred responsibility to approach yourself with tenderness and with care and with full acceptance for your beauty AND for your imperfection.
You have a sacred responsibility to hold yourself sacred and to have compassion for all of the things about yourself that you don’t always like.
You have a sacred responsibility to stop being so hard on yourself, so judgmental of yourself.
The more you truly love yourself, accept all of yourself, have compassion for yourself…then the more you can love and have compassion for others.
And the more you love and have compassion for others…the more those others will feel it. And the more they feel it, the more they will be able to love and have compassion for themselves.
And the more they have love and compassion for themselves, the more they can reflect that out onto those that they come in contact with…and the more those will, in turn, feel more deeply connected to their own self-love and acceptance.
And on and on the cycle will go.
Imagine a world where every person loved himself deeply, had deep respect for the experience of life, and had deep compassion for all of himself…thereby having deep compassion for others as well.
It would be a new paradigm. A Peace Paradigm.
And it starts with YOU.
You can do this.
