On a daily basis, there is no one who has more opportunities to judge and criticize you, or lift you up and support you, than you. No one in this life will speak to you, advise you, direct or misdirect you more than you will. You hold the key to how you treat yourself and, through your example, how you allow others to treat you. Consciously or not, you are always teaching people how to treat you. What you teach them is a reflection of what you think and feel about yourself. Others are simply helping you see what you think and feel about yourself. You are forever worthy of love, kindness and respect. But to truly understand this, you must first practice treating yourself with love, kindness and respect. As you do so, others will be guided how to treat you by the path that you yourself carve out.
Today, let us practice becoming our greatest supporter by recognizing that we are all One, and seeing each person as a part of ourselves. If everyone is a part of us and we are not being loving and supportive of them, we are withholding that love and support from ourselves. Let us let go of our judgments and criticisms by recalling that God is perfect and only creates perfectly. Thus each one of our journeys must be perfect. The less we judge and criticize “others,” the less judgmental and critical we become of ourselves. By recognizing the perfect nature of each and every one of us, we recognize and support the perfect nature of each and every part of us. It is by doing so — by loving, respecting and supporting our whole self and journey — that we begin to truly become our greatest supporter.
All glory to God.
Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
