Accept your nature as it is right now. No matter what the faults are, accept your nature as it is right now. It’s very important that you feel that you are not inferior to other human beings. It’s very important that you not feel as though you have so many defects, things wrong with you. It is only through feeling that you are same or not feeling that your lesser than, that the grosser aspects or the neurosis of the mind will fall away.
If you have an animal this will be easy to understand, if not then try to image or think of those animals that you have seen. All animals live according to their own way of being or their own nature, you see. They all have a specific role in life just as we all do. And they live according to their role. Which means, they therefore live a very harmonious life, for them. Do you understand? We need to also live the harmonious life. We need to tune into our very nature. This is what helps us progress on the spiritual path. This is what helps us in the process of unfoldment. This so called self acceptance is rare for 99.9% of human beings, because most human beings cannot, they refuse, you refuse to accept your faults, your short comings, so to speak. We are never tall enough, we are never skinny enough, the hair is not just right, the nose is too big or too small, the ear lobes are too long, the feet are too big, the hands are too wide, the hips are too narrow. There are numerous faults, ways that we pick ourselves apart. There is a good side to this, because somehow we always use it as the motivating factor to overcome our limitations, and to move into better understanding of ourselves. But, for the most part, our inability to accept ourselves or our lack of self acceptance is so big that it grinds us into the ground, causes us a great deal of dissatisfaction, huge amounts of worry, and it places us then at a very low level of living compared to what the potentials within us are that we are unaware of. And we may never become aware of them should we continue to live in this realm of non self acceptance.
If it is that a human being can live in the self acceptance of their nature and have the need or want if you will, to improve one’s self, now we are speaking of aspiration once again. This need, or want, or aspiration to improve with the understanding of one’s nature will not create those neurotic tendencies. Yes, we may see the faults that we have. If we are able to accept how we are presently, our personality, our looks, so forth, and not see them only as weaknesses and faults, then we are capable of overcoming them. If we are incapable, or find ourselves living in the inability to have self acceptance then we are setting ourselves up for disease. It is the nonacceptance that is truly the cause of disease. This lack of self acceptance will result in mental imbalance, great disturbance in the mind, and this in turn will result in physical problems. You see the mental imbalance will lead to the reflection in the physical body of manifestation of this mental imbalance. You see how that goes?
Obsession with “SELFIES” and not liking the outer appearance of one’s body image reflects inner discontent with our shadow self!
This Equinox reflects the collective consciousness of the western world view,” THEY” are out to destroy us! The unfortunate ignorance of god fearing people using their god as an intimidation comes from HATE of “the other”. A dis-ease of epidemic proportion projected from self unacceptance.
Acceptance & LOVE, Maa
