Due to the fact that today is Independence Day, I find myself thinking about freedom. I have been in the process of becoming freer over the past few months. I have been accepting life as it is more. And allowing myself to be who I am, thus facing my BIG fear of being rejected by the people I love. I am finding that my fear is unwarranted.
The more I live my truth, accept and love myself I am able to love others deeply and without reservation. I am losing interest in judging others. This does not mean that I do things perfectly. I make mistakes daily!
What it does mean : I am able to love others as they are because I am finally able to love myself as I am.
Buddha said: “The price of freedom is simply choosing to be, liberation is in the mind.”
True freedom is of our own making.
People reject other people and hate them because they cannot love and accept themselves completely. This is the most hidden of truths.
Just for today, I encourage everyone to accept yourself in all of your magnificence! Make no room in your heart for hate. Allow yourself to be free!
Happy 4th of July to all!
