Last night I had the pleasure of hosting the first Living A Life of Self Love campus discussion at Loyola Marymount and boy oh boy was it powerful! To be in a space in which BEings are open to transforming is beautiful, but being surrounded by beings of the same energy makes it even that more astounding.
If there was nothing else emphasized, it was for sure that acceptance is key to self love. Accepting your past. Learning to accept your present while staying patient and understanding the process of change and transformation. When going through life, we tend to put expectations on ourselves.
Perfection looks this way. We should eat, dress, act and look this way. We should be OK because... We should be healed because... We should get over it and be better because...
Letting go of those judgements is beyond freeing; letting go ignites an awakening. Allowing yourself to just BE and be connected to the present is so important. Don't even get caught up in your journey. Learning to just live and BE open is important. I am grateful for the vesselship I was able to bestow upon LMU, but I'm also grateful for the lessons and stories I was able to experience.
We're all just trying to live our best lives, and learning that we can take our time to do so, and possibly know 1 other person is going through life just like us, provides major relief. For all you "trying to find your way," know that you are already on your "way." You're already on a path to BEcome whatever it is you want. Don't discount who you are at this moment because you have an idea of "who you need to be." You have the choice to mold yourself AND accept who you are. There will never be an end point, so lighten up and enjoy the journey!
