      This practice works. Becoming your own best friend opens doors to unimaginable, limitless possibilities. Letting go of what no longer serves us creates more inner space, more energy, more creativity and joy. As we become more of who really are, our hearts open, not only to ourselves, but to all beings. I have a bumper sticker that says “The Real Revolution Will Be Love.” And it has to start with self love, self compassion.

        A Truly Wonderful Read worthy of Re-visits.

        🙏🏼

        I am reminded of a recent afternoon at our local co-op when one of our dear volunteers who reminds me a bit of Timothy Leary spoke Incredible Inspiration into the day Out of the Blue:

        “I Have a Message for you. Do not believe you are inadequate because you don’t feel like you are where you need or want to be in whatever capacity of life that means to you in this moment. You Are Fully Adequate. Just As You Are. Breathing and Being Here. Our Adequacy Is Inherently Inside of Us. Don’t seek outside of yourself. You have everything you Need.” points to heart and third eye

        The monologue was unprovoked. I did not get defensive. I was Open. The words were everything i needed to hear. I just didn’t know I needed to hear them so badly.

          Very cool when that works out like that - always seems more profound!

      This is a wonderful formula for pulling yourself out of self-criticism.
