The reason we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind-the-scenes with everyone else's highlight reel.
Sometimes I receive mail and messages from people who admire my lifestyle and way of thinking. This is nice, and if you gain value from my example – wonderful.
However, take notice that though I share beautiful images and wise words, my life is not all that super-duper. I have freedom and can do what I want – sweet, but also worries and dark moment like everyone else. This is the nature of life.
So appreciate qualities in others and seek to develop them in yourself, but realize that there is no 'right' path, there is only your path and your path is unique.
Life is never just black and white is always a multi colour. To see all in the positive way, rainbow colours needs to be learned sometimes.
'Love yourself' seems to be the answer to basically… everything.
But what is 'to love yourself' anyway?
For me it is about closing the gap between the state you are in, and your higher potential: the Integrity Gap from Latin integer; whole.
You are divine spirit having a physical experience by your own choosing. Consider it a master class in moving from limitation to freedom, expressing who you really are, finding your authentic core, to the best of your ability.
This is a bumpy and challenging class, and therefore you will sometimes feel a void, a longing somewhere deep down, that something is missing – something does not feel right. This is part of the game design, an inherent grasp for self-worth and purpose.
So we do our best, by trial and error, and along the way we try filling this endless hole with external stuff like food, alcohol, belief systems, entertainment, drugs, sex, work – it's a long list.
We know it's only a temporary band-aid, not addressing the cause of the problem, but it gives us relief for a second.
When you feel bad, you are not in alignment with your destined path. Your body recognizes the stress, frustration, misdirection, and responds by storing fat.
Call it a soft wake-up call.
As the path of abundance isn't the path that maximizes velocity. It's the path that minimizes friction.
So quality food and training are important factors for good health, however nothing a release fat from your body and contributes to all wellbeing more efficiently than finding inner alignment and developing your state of being.
You are worthy.
