Go on adventures, splash through those puddles, or play outdoors until the streetlights come on. These are just a few ways in which you might find, and embrace, your inner child again.
Do you remember how wonderful it felt to be a child? Adventure was our only calling, and courage seemed never ending. And subsequently, we seemed to enjoy our life so much more. Incorporate your younger self back into the joy of your daily being.
Life is more fun if you play games!
Loving and honouring others while berating and judging yourself is still practicing separation consciousness. Unconditional love and unity consciousness means seeing the beauty and divinity of ALL, and that MUST include yourself. Simply put, to deny yourself is to deny an aspect of God, as you are all part of the greater whole of the divine.
To one whose self is his body, death of the body is death of the self. But for one whose self is his love, awe and faith, there is no death, only a passing. From a state of confinement in the body, he makes the passage to liberation. He continues to work within this world, and even more so than before.
The Talmud says that Jacob, our father, never died. Moses, also, never died. Neither did Rabbi Judah the Prince. They were very high souls who were one with Truth in an ultimate bond—and since Truth can never die, neither could they.
Yes, in our eyes we see death. A body is buried in the ground, and we must mourn the loss. But this is only part of the falseness of our world. In the World of Truth, they are still here as before.
And the proof: We are still here. For if these high souls would not be with us in our world, all that we know would cease to exist.
I move beyond forgiveness to understanding, and I have compassion and kindness for myself and others.
