To be beautiful means to be yourself.You don’t
need to be accepted by others. You need to
accept yourself. When you are born a lotus
flower, be a beautiful lotus flower, don’t try to be
a magnolia flower. If you crave acceptance and
recognition and try to change yourself to fit what
other people want you to be, you will suffer all
your life. True happiness and true power lie in
understanding yourself, accepting yourself,
having confidence in yourself.
~Thich Nhat Hanh
remembering that we are beautiful, that we are the essence of all that we ever wanted……this can be as illusive as all wild things….
inquiry for today~ follow the full moon into a deep reverie…..stay awhile and bathe in all that you have forgotten…..
To be rooted is perhaps the most important and least recognized need of the human soul. ~Simone Weil
