STEP 7 of 12 Steps to Loving the Self:
"Through our full commitment to loving ourselves, we confidently realised that we had restored ourselves to integrity."
A Step 7 story:
IT TOOK ME A LONG TIME TO UNGROW! The magic way a child sees the world tends to fall away as we grow up and go into survival mode and think about making money. I had to hit the wall hard before I woke up to the Truth that life offers me miracles when I let go of all the conditioned ideas, thoughts and beliefs about survival. Yesterday I was at the park with my young grandson enjoying a little game with him and being delighted by his squeals of laughter. Another young boy was watching with interest as his mother was busy chatting to a friend. I invited him to join in the game. I decided to show him a wonderful 'trick' where I went to one end of the park and he stayed at the other end where there is a pipe that goes underground and you can talk/sing to each other at a distance. Oh the pure delight of this young boy and mine as we played. The mother and her friend said to me: "We'll see you in a while after we've done our shopping and had a massage!" I was the privileged and lucky one - having a totally wonderful time in JOY! To be given this gift of seeing through the eyes of my innocent child spirit and being FREE to PLAY again, well I wish I could give that gift to everyone, for then we would have Heaven on Earth. You know it's written in the bible: "Except ye become as little children, ye cannot enter the Kingdom of Heaven." Matthew 18:3 So gooooooo on - go play today and let go of worry about how you will survive. Life will look after you if you surrender to your Spirit.
