Self Love and the Inner Judge
When we truly want to love ourselves we must learn to root ourselves in our being, and say yes to whatever is arising in us. If this first step is right, in time, loving yourself will transform into Being oneself.
To accomplish this , we need to come to terms with a mechanism inside of ourselves that sabotages this self love constantly.
It is known as the super ego or inner judge. This judge tells us again and again that we are wrong, reducing us to feeling like a child and making us forget the beauty of our being.
Presence, Acceptance , Inquiry and Curiosity are our greatest allies on this journey. Of course meditation runs like a red thread through the entire process.
