Integrity – The state of being whole and undivided

What if we loved ourselves

From the inside out

Spent time

Not on trying to understand others

And the world around us

But instead

What lies within

Once we are sure

Of who we are

And can stand undivided

By internal war

And bickering

Everything

“Out there”

Reveals itself as a reflection

We realise

We are not part of the water

Easily troubled

By a stone thrown carelessly by another

No

(Pause for joyful laughter)

We are the moon

*Socrates advises “know thyself”

I have been attempting that feat for it seems like forever…

I read a book on the week-end called “The Human Design”. Recommended to me by Another blogger Mare over at https://thisexperimentallife.com/author/limitlessmare/

After years of reading spiritual and self help personal growth material I had the thunderclap realisation that actually instead of trying to improve myself perhaps the very best thing I could do was accept myself. 

Not to say we shouldn’t strive to be the best humans we can be but it’s a bit hard to work on a car without knowing what model you are (or even if you are car)

Anyway check it out if you’re interested.

I bought it on Kindle from Amazon so I could read it straight away but I’m in Australia so I won’t leave links – here is the book

  1. I think it’s hard to improve without some level of acceptance–not always easy, but I think once we do accept ourselves, we can turn our focus outwards, make a difference in the world in a bigger way. Another nice post. You always make my day nicer…

  2. Acceptance is the lot of it isn’t it…..we can be so kind and accepting to others and forget ourselves in the process.
    I have put others before myself for most of my life and my body is now in protest.
    So happy you enjoyed the book 🙂

  3. Lovely piece! Enjoyed it! Acceptance, indeed. Difficult, some say – the perfectionists, like me. And, of course! But in the end, it can be rewarding for the restless soul. Acceptance in our lives is part of a premise that speaks about changing what we can and accepting the unchangeable. Debatable, I agree. The premise is indeed a challenge. Thank you, Kathy, for sharing! Happy Monday! I’m eight hours behind in time.
