« Love is the ultimate meaning of everything around us.
It is not a mere sentiment; it is truth; it is the
joy that is at the root of all creation. »
Love begins with ourselves. It is very simple. Anything that blocks us from feeling
love lies within us and how we relate to ourselves. By the second half of our lives,
most of us have built many barriers to love to protect us from being hurt. The accumulated
experiences, the disappointments that didn’t go the way we wanted, the unfulfilled
dreams, the relationships gone sour, all lead to our shutting down unconsciously.
When we can’t accept and love ourselves, exactly as we are, we can’t accept and
love anyone else.
It’s time to let go. It’s time to open up. It’s time to be mindful of everything
we tell ourselves that blocks us from accepting and loving ourselves. It’s time
to be free. It’s time for my personal transformation.
I am opening up today to let God remove
everything that is standing in the way of my completely accepting myself just as
I am, of my loving
myself, of my ability to love others.
