All you have any real control of is your own attitude, your own feelings about things around you and yourself. We strive in our society to package ourselves so that we might be perceived a certain way by those around us. what we end up with is a bunch of insecure people who can't see beyond themselves because they are so consumed by what others think of them. It's binding. It may as well be shackles. Self love is the key to peace and freedom.
I keep getting more and more information on what Source Energy or God is. What keeps coming up is that we are all god. We all carry the source energy within us and like a hologram, we are all part of a greater whole. Those who might think it arrogant to see the god energy within yourself, something worth revering, something to love and cherish, I ask you to just try to wrap your heart around what it would feel like if you knew all that you wanted to be were already within you.
My friend David came to town last weekend. He is someone who doesn't fixate on himself in a destructive way and although we haven't discussed the topic of self love, he is someone who exudes the positive energy and LOVE of someone who knows that the universe is flowing through him. His story is so compelling that he has written the last ten years of it into a beautiful book. His passion is to motivate, support the dreams, and hug as many people on planet Earth as he can. He is even willing to go to the hotbeds of conflict to add what he can in the way of love and kindness to all sides. He has no fear of what might happen to him, he only sees his body as a vehicle to spread as much uplifting optimism around as possible. A true messenger, David spreads the message of "you can do it!, whatever your passion is, YOU CAN DO IT."
