"You are NOT YOUR BODY or what has happened to it. YOU are a PURE, WHOLE, SHINING FORCE OF LOVE AND LIGHT."
One word: SELF-DISGUST. How often do we pick ourselves apart and punish ourselves for what we are not? We are hyper-focused on that blemish or wrinkle. We carefully dress our bodies to HIDE that love handle or cellulite. We OBSESS over the ever-growing techniques popularized by the media and people of power/influence to GET RID of what makes us “imperfect”. We rate the quality of our day based upon COMPARISON: did I perceive myself to be better/more fortunate than majority of the people I came in contact with? Good day. Did I feel that I was worse off, less fortunate, or lower than even a potent one or two people? Day=Crap! Feeling GUILTY as you read this? Stop! That’s another EGO TRAP to keep us stuck in our small selves! To compare is to be human; we can laugh at it! And actually, in a sense, the comparison represents a much deeper longing: for the True Self to be remembered. We are just focusing on the external, which serves as a BIG BRICK WALL to that remembrance. The path back to that Truth is in the release of the busyness, the distraction, the external focus, the future or past rumination, YES, it is when we sit in STILLNESS with ourselves. At the deepest level within, is the remembrance that I AM NOT all the external conditions of the world, the many labels I wear in the world, or the activities I partake in, I am TIMELESS; I am INFINITE; I am RADIANT; I am not only WORTHY of LOVE, I am the LIVING EMBODIMENT OF IT! We are ALL that; infinitely and unconditionally. So give yourself the permission right now to repeat that OUT LOUD to yourself. Allow it to PERMEATE your being, because no matter what your external body looks like, no matter what experiences it has been through, no matter what the influences of the world or ANYONE for that matter might have to say about it, you will ALWAYS be that PURE, WHOLE, SHINING FORCE of LOVE and LIGHT. No one or thing can take that away from you; it can’t be eliminated it can only be hid from your awareness through layering on things of the world. Each time you offer yourself a moment of stillness, and begin the practice of turning inward, you create cracks (sometimes painful) that slowly begin to reveal that light to you and the inner knowing of WHO you REALLY ARE. And with that knowing/remembrance, you are UNSTOPPABLE.
