You are pure and perfect within, yet you seem to think there’s something dark, scary, broody, maybe even repulsive, offensive, and disgusting in there.
Do you feel disgusted with yourself? Do you disgust yourself?
And you know what? That’s ok.
It’s ok to be repulsed by yourself.
It’s ok to feel like you are offensive – even to yourself!
When you face this ugliness within – the dark and dirty side of yourself – you can actually see that it’s not so bad after all.
In fact, when you think about it, ART isn’t always pretty. It’s not always purely for aesthetics. Sometimes it’s there to make a statement, to make you think, to make you face your fears – to make you take a good hard look at yourself and how you view the world with your judgements (and don’t tell me you don’t judge!) and projection of idealistic views.
Yes, you so WANT to be perfect. You so WANT to project love and beauty and peace and all that good stuff. And YES, you have all that inside of you – BEYOND measure.
But you are a multifaceted being, and you have ALL sides to you within.
There’s so much JUDGEMENT around feeling negative, hate, anger, sadness, melancholy – and what you kind of know, but need reminding right now, is that there is nothing wrong with this. You are perfect as you are – mind tricks and all.
What is often forgotten in this world, is that while there is infinite love in the world, there is also infinite hate, infinite aggression, infinite judgement.
And what is also often forgotten is that we all originate from a source of infinite love, and that the hate, aggression, and judgement in the world all arises from what we see within ourselves, and we judge ourselves as being imperfect.
How harshly are you judging yourself right now?
You know, you don’t HAVE to punish yourself for it – for anything.
Sit with that for a moment.
Breathe it in.
And remind yourself that everything is perfect as it is right now. We are free of judgement, when we stop judging ourselves.
