STEP 10 OF 12 STEPS TO LOVING THE SELF:
"We continue to take daily inventory of all the ways that we are not accepting and loving ourselves, and when we see these areas, promptly love ourselves."
A STEP TEN TRUE STORY......
Yesterday I was travelling on the train and a beautiful young child about 3 years of age was playing with a paper plane. She stood on the empty seat in front of me and I joined in her loud, vibrant joy. We got louder as I totally joined in the play and her giggles were a pure delight for my own inner innocent Heart. The child in me was blessed with an opportunity to play. Then one of her parents said: "Shhhhhh, calm down." I responded: "Why? Why does she have to be quiet, we are having so much fun!" The belief that children should be seen and not heard is one that has probably been handed down since the Victorian era. The parents then smiled and said: "She will probably sleep really well tonight!" Yes, it is natural to want to express ourselves in joyful ways and I LOVE to have the opportunity to be a loud child - it is never too late to have a childhood. What a gift that beautiful child was, a healing angel gracing my life with an opportunity to play loudly! I was able to accept and love my inner joyful, playful and loud child and that was an act of loving myself.
Heaven is here now. Enjoy the precious moment for that is where the timeless beauty of life and God/Love resides. Let go of all thoughts of the past and the future for they keep you held in their tight grip and stop you having the life you were meant to have as a joyful being expressing your uniqueness.
