[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Are you willing to no longer recognize yourself?

The only person we can change is our SELF. If we don't like someone else's
choices or behaviors we don't have to be around them. We can love them and
have compassion for them while we remove our investment of energy in them -
back to our SELF - so we can make choices for ourselves that are in our
highest and best good. Sabrina Reber

Are you willing to no longer recognize yourself? You have an idea in your
mind of who you think you are – you like certain things, you act this way,
you respond this way to and so on and so on. You pride yourself in this.

All of this becomes integral parts of your personality. For any of it to
shift is unsettling because it redefines who you are.

When you transform you must let go of the perceptions of yourself! You are
busy trying to squeeze the great, grand, magnificent, spiritual you into
this lil ole box called your personality. And in clinging so insistently to
your personality you squeeze out the possibility of your greatness!

You must be willing for things to come out of your mouth that you never
imagined would come out of your mouth.

You must be willing to say “I am sorry” when you would have held your
ground to the death, even when you know you are wrong!

You must be able to appreciate at a deeper level the people, places and
things that used to just rile you up.

You must be willing to see value in circumstances and conditions that you
had written off as worthless.

You must be willing to see possibilities in a blocked path and know that a
way is being made out of no way!

When you are willing to no longer recognise yourself for who you used to
be, a revolution will happen in your life, to the eye will look like a
transformation. Peace!!!

Peace
