Part 11- loving oneself unconditionally

Part 11- wholeness or Oneness is realized

“On this sacred path of Radical Acceptance, rather than striving for perfection, we discover how to love ourselves into wholeness.”
Tara Brach, Radical Acceptance: Embracing Your Life With the Heart of a Buddha


If you love yourself, all your fragments have been made whole. You are not the child, or the judge, or the even the lover....you are whole and complete, for your love for yourself has set you free.
You may be aware of your parts, but your intention to love yourself always helps you to see your wholeness.  Upon realizing this, personal problems, crises, sorrows…..become situations in your life, not catastrophic calamities.
In the past,   when we have these crises or problems, we assign charges to them without realizing we are doing it.  We assign levels of suffering that we endure, and we “freak out” the way we have done all of our lives.  This is the world of duality, where we cannot control ourselves and everything is a drama and crisis.  After we realize our wholeness, we may still
experience the initial panic of a disaster or a personal hurt, BUT we learn to realize it immediately and love ourselves through the situation.  We can train ourselves to look at the problem like a rock in the road.  Encountering this rock, we do not let our emotions get out of hand, we simply go over the rock, or move the rock, or go around the rock.  We do not assign blame to the rock, or get mad at the universe or God for putting it there.  It is simply there, so we deal with it the best way we can for ourselves and for others.
Approaching life in this way reduces your suffering, and most importantly, allows you to have a state of mind and spirit to bless and love others and the world.  It helps you to be PRESENT with those around you and with those that you meet.  Buck and I call this: The God Position.  This designation does not elevate us over others, on the contrary, it makes us the servant of all. 

Within the depths of authenticity lives integrity; waiting for our return. When we arrive, we are met with effortless joy, abundant living, peace and wholeness--nothing lacking, nothing broken. This is soul equanimity, the state of pure alignment with will of Source and will of self.”
LaShaun Middlebrooks Collier

Next:  God realization....or the discovery of the meaning of the authentic self!

Buck talks about our new book: Friday at 1:00PM MST

,The radioprogram: www.spotliteradio.com will be interviewing Buck Rholdes tomorrow at 1 pm. (an 8 minutes interview).  He will talk mostly about our new book: 11 Steps to God Realization or The Hidden Secrets of the Ancient Mystery Schools.

The book looks at 11 events in the life of Jesus from the perspective of Oneness and mysticism. Using the pattern of the 11 steps, every person can realize our own true self and oneness with the divine.

I will continue my posts on "Loving oneself" later this month.

Thank you all for reading the blog.  Please feel free to post comments.
