How very true….Everyone and Everything is a mirror projecting back to us all that we love and all that we have yet to accept about ourselves. For every finger pointed outward, there are 3 more aimed back at us. That goes for the love and beauty we see in others, as well as the not so good stuff that we’d rather not own within ourselves.
When we can learn to love and accept others for exactly who they are, we will have an easier time loving and accepting ourselves without condition. Think about it….We want others to unconditionally love and accept us, and how can we expect them to do that if we are not willing to do the same for ourselves OR them?!….
Take an inventory in your own life….Who do you most love and admire?….Are these not the same qualities that you possess yourself?…If you don’t believe so, it is only because it is lying dormant asking to be called forth and waiting for your full expression of it. What are the people or things that keep showing up that irritate you or that you continue to find fault or judgment with?….I’m sure if you honestly hold up the mirror and take a closer look, you will see some aspect of the situation within yourself. If the answer is truly No….Your lack of acceptance of the person or situation is what is keeping it around, so the mirror still belongs in your hands facing you. What we resist will persist until Love finds its way…..And It always will……
Acceptance is one of the keys to unconditional love and Love is ALWAYS the answer.
