081205_rainier_cloud_02Learn to be present.

Practice hearing the voices in your head
without becoming involved and without
judgment.

And take it on faith that any
voice, internal or external, that is
telling you that
SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH YOU
is not the voice
of your
Heart,
God,
True Nature.

The reason acceptance isn’t more popular
is that in acceptance
there is nothing to do.

In acceptance there is nothing “wrong”
that needs to be changed, fixed, worked
on or otherwise improved.

And the simple,
astounding
mind boggling amazing
FACT
is that as soon as you accept yourself
EXACTLY
AS
YOU
ARE…

…all those “character flaws”
ANGRY
SELFISH
STRESSFUL
SHY
AGGRESSIVE
DEPENDENT
SNOBBISH
RECLUSIVE

BEGIN TO FALL AWAY

BECAUSE

those “flaws” have their
only existence
in nonacceptance,
in self-hate…

Once I catch on to how this
self-hate process works,
I see that it goes on all the time,
everywhere…

When I see this to be true,
self-hate ceases to be a private,
secret thing I do
that proves I’m a bad person.

I can begin to take it less personally.

At some point,
now or later,
you’re going to have to risk
Being You
in order to find out
who that really is.

Not the conditioned you,
not the you you’ve been taught
to believe you are,
who you really are.

And this perhaps will be
the scariest,
the most loving,
the most rewarding
thing you have ever done.
