Many of us are working on loving ourselves unconditionally. It’s not an easy thing to achieve, because we live with ourselves and tend to focus on our mistakes. Not too many people are always compassionate, kind, loving or perfect. Speaking for myself, I am forever beating myself up for what I have done wrong.
Today, in my meditation, I was shown how to break away from beating myself up, and learn to love myself a little more each day.
The way that I was shown, was to look at another and focus on his outstanding good points. I saw compassion, willingness to go the distance, his perseverance to give his all in certain situations, I saw his kindness and ability to say no to events that he did not want to partake in.
Then, I was asked to look at the similarities I found in myself. First I could see nothing, not one thing. I was told to keep looking for those qualities in myself, that I loved in the other person. I was not allowed to give up, until I found them.
I sat uncomfortably for a while, and then I started seeing my True Self as opposed to my ego. I felt so much love and compassion for myself. I saw my beauty and my love. It was a very humbling experience.
Every day, look at your true nature, who you really are, not your ego that can be tired, angry, irritable. Just look at how amazing you are. Start making a habit of this, and eventually you will learn to love yourself so beautifully, that your flaws will fall away, and you will only be Divine Love.
Energy flows where attention goes. Be Love!
