It is not just about nourishing our bodies but about nourishing our soul, our psyche. We are also here to learn self-acceptance. We need to learn just how valuable we are 1st to ourselves then to our family and friends. We are here to learn how to evolve and thrive!

Love Your Self

Wherever you are in this moment is exactly where you are suppose to be
No matter how things look, seem, or feel.
Or in a perfectly evolving universe, could it be any other way?
When you know that you are doing your very best
Within the circumstance of your existence….Applaud Yourself!

There are none to compare your Self to, and none to compete with, and there never were!
When the rose and the lotus are side by side,
Is one more beautiful than the other?

When you awaken to who and what you are, everyone automatically awakens to who and what you are without a word spoken.
Life is painful when you attach yourself to models of how it’s suppose to be,
Because pain is simply the difference between “what is” and what you want IT to be!

You stand outside the circle the circle of life and wonder WHY….
Why you feel left out,
Unaware that you need ONLY you OWN permission
To join the others..not theirs!

Your loneliness is your Self, wanting to make friends with its Self!
Your loneliness is your Heart, wanting to sing to its Self!
Your loneliness is your Being-ness, wanting to love its Self!

Behind all of your anger, fear, shame, and loss,
Beneath all your sadness and pain.. is the need for love!
How much love are you willing to accept from others?
How much love are you willing to give to others?

Know that you are loved, even if you don’t know it!
For you are a Being of light and love,
A child of God, and one with the entire Universe!
Each day comes bearing Gifts;
All you have to do …is untie the ribbons!
