[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Raise your standards

People just act on the outside they way they feel on the inside T.Mcmillan

You KNOW I'm all for Love. The unbridled kind. The pure, bright Love that
melts it all to rapturous clarity. That. And... I want to Love with my eyes
open -- eyes on my self worth, eyes on my dignity, eyes on what I deserve.

So I'm way less "accepting" of... way less. If I seem less tolerant, it's
because I am. It may look "less loving" on the outside, but my love of life
and all the people in my life runs deeper than ever -- and I express my love
more freely than I did when I used to put up with more crap than I do.

What are you "accepting" right now because it's the ethical thing to do, or
the harmonious way to go? Ethics, harmony, real love -- so divine. So much
goodness can go in the "healthy acceptance" category. But...What on your
"tolerance list" is lifting your life up, vs. what's weighing it down? What
occasions of acceptance are expanding your being with love, vs. what's
making you quietly resentful? When do you feel freedom rush in because
you're accepting the way someone/something is, and when do you feel
muffled? Love is a great complexity so it's not always that black or white,
but sometimes it is. Go there.

There's the now legendary story of Maya Angleou's dinner party. A guest
that she had invited made a racist joke. She asked him to leave.
Unacceptable.

Here's the spiritual bottom-line: Take less shit.

You want to be ethical and loving and harmonious? Love you and love your
values of love. Revere your heart. Change the world by most excellently
respecting your own ideals.

Raise your standards and the universe will meet you there.

Thank you Ms La Porte

Peace
