I want to unfold.
I do not want to remain
folded up anywhere,
because wherever I am still folded,
I am untrue.
~Rainer Maria Rilke
It is an all too frequent discovery - another place where I find myself 'folded up' - protecting myself - afraid of exposure - untrue.
Self-acceptance is an on-going process, rarely, if ever, achieved once and for all.
It's an inside job and the work is daily.
There is little that is more healing than acceptance of self.
When all else has failed, why not try loving and accepting yourself?
What I am, and you are, is what is - the truth.
Why not unfold the truth of who we are, embrace it and accept it?
What are we waiting for?
