I don’t know if I’m expressing this quite right in this video. But what I have been experiencing lately is that when I have self deprecating thoughts and offer myself love, I’m experiencing the unconditional nature of love. I may be having a hard time loving myself, but Love doesn’t seem to care. Real love is unconditional love and perhaps one of the most transformative things we can do is to accept ourselves even that part of us that feels like a screw up from time to time.
We all have the power to be present and it is such a gift to others when we practice this. In this video I talk about a couple of times where I have experienced the power of someone else’s presence. I’d like to invite you to compassionately gift this gift away to someone today!
Several times yesterday the topic of identity came up in several different ways. On my walk this morning this all came to mind... Your value and your worth is not determined by the title on your business card, who you THINK you are, or people’s opinions about you. How you define your identity is critical and it’s NOT determined by what you do. What I want to do here is to simply invite you to make part of your daily prayer and meditation practice — JUST BEING.
