“As I began to love myself I recognized that my mind can disturb me and it can make me sick. But as I connected it to my heart, my mind became a valuable ally. Today I call this connection “WISDOM OF THE HEART”
We are all exactly in the right place at the right time. We all receive the gifts of what we need to see and hear and experience on any given day. With that in mind, each day I take a few moments to ask the infinite, the Universe, God, to show me what it is that I need to see.
While scrolling around looking for a quote for a Facebook post I came across this insightful, and rather profound, piece from Charlie Chaplin. There are many truths found within his words and, to be honest, I must have read the first line over and over.
As we move through our lives we all learn, and continue to learn, many lessons. As we become more aware, we are drawn to seeking deeper meaning. What Chaplin has eloquently written reads like a “that was then, this is now” and serves as a reminder to love ourselves. It serves as a reminder that as we begin to love ourselves we become MORE of ourselves.
We begin to see and glean and act as ourselves because anything less is not loving who we are. Loving ourselves and seeing with this new perspective also allows us to connect with the wisdom of our hearts and forgive….
“As I began to love myself I found that anguish and emotional suffering are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth. Today, I know, this is “AUTHENTICITY”.
As I began to love myself I understood how much it can offend somebody if I try to force my desires on this person, even though I knew the time was not right and the person was not ready for it, and even though this person was me. Today I call it “RESPECT”.
As I began to love myself I stopped craving for a different life, and I could see that everything that surrounded me was inviting me to grow. Today I call it “MATURITY”.
As I began to love myself I understood that at any circumstance, I am in the right place at the right time, and everything happens at the exactly right moment. So I could be calm. Today I call it “SELF-CONFIDENCE”.
As I began to love myself I quit stealing my own time, and I stopped designing huge projects for the future. Today, I only do what brings me joy and happiness, things I love to do and that make my heart cheer, and I do them in my own way and in my own rhythm. Today I call it “SIMPLICITY”.
As I began to love myself I freed myself of anything that is no good for my health – food, people, things, situations, and everything that drew me down and away from myself. At first I called this attitude a healthy egoism. Today I know it is “LOVE OF ONESELF”.
As I began to love myself I quit trying to always be right, and ever since I was wrong less of the time. Today I discovered that is “MODESTY”.
As I began to love myself I refused to go on living in the past and worrying about the future. Now, I only live for the moment, where everything is happening. Today I live each day, day by day, and I call it “FULFILLMENT”.
As I began to love myself I recognized that my mind can disturb me and it can make me sick. But as I connected it to my heart, my mind became a valuable ally. Today I call this connection “WISDOM OF THE HEART”.
We no longer need to fear arguments, confrontations or any kind of problems with ourselves or others. Even stars collide, and out of their crashing new worlds are born. Today I know “THAT IS LIFE”!”~Charles Chaplin (Reprinted from Goodreads.com)
Life is beautiful and much to short to spend it in self-judgement, self-loathing or self-punishment. Begin to love yourself. Connect with the wisdom of your heart and watch as a new world is born.~Shine Your Light Debbie
