Acceptance seems a battle with our “Ego”

 

.
.

.

As most humans I have strengths and vulnerabilities, ambitions and fears, desires and demons.
.
.
The desire for approval suppresses my acceptance. Wanting and needing others approval is the work of the ego.
.
.
Accepting all of oneself, now, has little need for approval.
.
.
This accepting space has many opportunities for wellbeing and happiness.
.
.
Acceptance is a tall task I struggle to fully accomplish.
.
.
Parts of me that feel unworthy keep resurfacing with life’s stresses.
.
.
My unworthy parts are targeted using a daily affirmation repeated outloud, by directed intention when I sit and by application during the day.
.
.
Assess your strengths and weaknesses, then devise a plan for improving.
.
.
We are not accomplishing anything, we are working on letting negative judgments go, letting the ego rest.
.
.
We never arrive or complete our journey, we just live fully today then wake up tomorrow.

    This blog really makes a statement! However I find myself wanting to be perfevt at all times. It becomes a bit of a struggle even though i know humans are not perfect..

  2. Perfection is not our goal.

    We strive to spend more time in the present, letting go, accepting.

    When we find ourself grasping thought or unworthiness we now have a plan to return quickly and limit our posture to negative though and judgment.

    Judgment has ego leading the charge.

    Needing to be perfect is a judgment. Somehow perfecting n is equated with happiness.

    That is erroneous

    Perfection brings sufferinging

  3. nice!
    if only a more gentle, affordable
    ego was available on-line 🙂

  4. A part time, lazy Ego is my order
