20140806-233330.jpgDay 17 – Accepting Every Part Of Me

Thought for the day: As I am willing to accept all of me, I am more willing to accept more of you

Daily Quote:
Trust does not mean that everything will be all right. Trust means everything is already all right. Trust knows no future; trust knows only the present. The moment you think of the future, it is already distrust.” ~Osho

Today’s message from Osho is about accepting all that is the Self.

We comprise of good and bad, dark and light, and beauty and ugly. In order to be whole, we must accept all of us. The minute we reject a part of ourselves, we judge ourselves, and this keeps us from being kind, loving, and compassionate toward ourselves… and others.

Everything starts with our own selves. If we cannot accept ourselves fully, we won’t be able to accept another. If we cannot love ourselves for all that we are, we won’t be able to love someone that way also.

Acceptance is letting go and allowing. It is allowing our authentic self to shine. So let’s shine on and be our beautiful, authentic selves. Let’s make our own unique mark in this world.

Excerpt from the course
The moment you judge a part of yourself, you are dividing yourself into two. You are a whole. All these tricks you have learned about division have to be dropped. You have learned to divide yourself into the godly part and the devilish part, the good and the bad, the high and the low. Drop all divisions. That’s what acceptance means. Acceptance means there is no question of condemnation and whatever is the case, you accept it. Suddenly, there comes a transformation in your being.”

20140111-205612.jpgLiebster Award: Tina Pumfrey was wonderfuly kind to nominate me for the Liebster Award, but I have not completed the acceptance.  I need to answer her questions, compile a list of nominees, and also create 10 questions to ask. I hope to complete this before end of month.

20140129-235632.jpgThe 21 Day Consciousness Cleanse: I wanted to do Debbie Ford’s Consciousness Cleanse to release barriers, release resistance, and to release fears (especially pertaining to love).  I was very excited to start this cleanse, but it took me a long while to go through and understand what it required me to do.  Still I had a hard time with the exercises, and I wasn’t getting the most out of it as I had hoped.

A part of the problem was that I became distracted with some others books I had acquired that I wanted to try and seemed more compatible with.  I still want to try this, but probably after I get through the other books and meditations (including Kimberly Saeed’s Amazing Meditation on Acceptance and Self-Love and the upcoming Oprah and Deepak’s Finding Your Flow meditation journey).

Bucket List: Trust The Flow # 1: As mentioned in my blog post, this was a very hard item for me to do.  I didn’t mention what I was doing, but I will let you know what I was trying to do–which was to just surrender and let go completely for 30 – 60 days.  I was going to mindfully do this and not control the outcome of any situation.  I was going to trust in the natural unfolding of events in my life and let God.

It started well.  I had some minor and profound experiences during the first couple of weeks. However, soon after that, we had a series of family emergencies (and some miracles from them too).  Uncle M, by the way, is doing well, and healing, albeit slow.  After his immediate family was told to make a decision regarding his life, he pulled through.  The family is hopeful that he will recover as much as possible, from his diagnosis. Eventually, I also succumbed to stress and a crazy schedule–which brought on a minor set back of my own.

I started to have a hard time with this journey, and I started to resist.  I couldn’t stay mindful every moment.  So I need a do over.  I’m glad, that for some things in our lives, we can do that.

What I did notice was that I have been trying to surrender and let go, especially when I was having a hard time, during the last few months.  It wasn’t every moment, but I think surrendering and letting go has become easier.  Expecting miracles has become easier.  Resistance has become less and less, and I was beginning to trust more and more.

I am starting again this coming Monday.  I am going to surrender and let go for 45 days.  This will be a great time to start for me and 45 days will be a great length of time too, as my first bucket list trip is coming up soon. How incredible to surrender and let go to absolutely new places, discoveries, experiences, and adventures…

Prompt: Monday, January 27, 2014
What puts more pressure on you: Time constraints or achieving perfection?

Achieving perfection, definitely. This was more pronounced when I was younger, but I have been learning acceptance over the years, because I now believe that my idea of perfection is skewed. I also now believe that the real competition is really with myself, not really with others, and this is mostly for self-betterment… to be a better person, woman, human being, etc.
