Do you remember your first feelings of attraction for someone, the passion, the lust, the hunger. These feelings are often recognised when being projected towards another individual. Im inviting you to jog back to a memory when you last felt such feelings y towards yourself? Do you have one? Many people associate feelings of unfulfillment and dis-satisfaction when asked to how then truly feel about themselves. The latest self help book can be great to motivate you towards "becoming a better person" but what tools are out there facilitating us to love ourselves exactly the way we are now, to accept ourselves exactly the way we are now. I love a bit of self development as much as the next person. However it's easy to get caught in a web of constantly trying to measure up to our ego ideal in our head. Those fictional characters of the " better you". Who really isn't you at all. Who's standards are we measuring our selves up when we are striving to be this better person. Where has the drive for re-conditioning came from? The latest "Eckhart Tolle or Lousie Hay book perhaps? Our true selfs can get bogged down in all the new age self help crap until we no longer recognise the value and validity in our present self. The self that has been present from the moment you born. Self acceptance is key for growth. I for one have found myself going round in circles from not acknowledging that who and where i am right now is divine. Self acceptance and appreciation have become principles of my daily life.
This self acceptance and appreciation has assisted in removing sigmas that i never knew i had. Self acceptance and appreciated has re awakened the sensual self that always been here within me waiting to be acknowledged.
