Thought of the day
For a long time many people have spoken about self love, and how important it is to love thyself.
I understand the meaning of what they are saying, because; this life time my major lesson is self love. When regrouping the situation of self love; I noticed how many times the opportunity was presented, of choosing to love myself by taking the correct action. Instead, I looked for guidance from others; I wanted their permission and consent towards doing what I wanted to do in that moment. For years this kind of behaviour continued to be part of my life.
"Others were more worthy of love than me."
When I became unhappy by the decision made by others, the blame factor came into play. What a vicious circle blaming others is. Learning to take full responsibility for my own decision towards the desires, of the heart and soul, is the correct choice.
This habit became a "NEED" of wanting acceptance by others.
I found myself only able to judge, what was right for me, as being unworthy of my love. The game went on for years and years. It was a game of separation, between my soul and the opinion of others towards me.
Why was it so important that others accepted me?
I found it hard to appreciate all the wonderful qualities that God had bestowed upon my essence! I was given all that I needed towards this task of learning Self Love, of learning Self value and self esteem! Does the unseen world enjoy seeing us struggle? I continued to ask myself. "NO" was the answer.
"The experiences and opportunities that are presented connected to the major learning lesson, are only there to make you stronger. Each time you choose the other side of the coin, the pain related to the word "Failure" points towards remembering your own truth of life. Therefore you have a wider prospective of the two sides of the coin. A wider prospective towards how life really is, how it presents itself, to each in a personal way related to the inner truth." The universe responded.
By looking at life this way, I can see that life becomes a magical adventure towards achievement of my own truth, rather than the other person's truth. This is the shift that is necessary for me to make and I was very happy with this insight. I also noticed by the previous experienced that Self love goes deeper and deeper until it reaches completion. At this point of completion, the giving to others and to the Self becomes total. Eventually the lesson is finished, than the focus can be on living life on a wider state of consciousness, where no more "needing" or obstacles are present.
I find talking about Self love so difficult to do.
