Just before the vasana struck, (1) I wrote a short column, which I didn’t post once the vasana exploded. I can now post it here:
* * *
I, as a total being, accept myself.
I, without reservations, respect myself.
I embrace all of myself, the seen, the unseen, and the merely suspected; the good, the bad and the ugly; the past, the present and the future.
This feeling of self-acceptance is totally new to me. It’s more than just being relaxed, or loving, or compassionate.
If I were to say what other word might best describe it, I think the closest I could come would be to say “peace.”
I feel peaceful, relaxed, and calm; still, centered, and content. I feel neutral, normal, and natural.
I’m afraid to break the spell of this moment, it’s so good.
I’m not sure if this is serenity. But it certainly must lead in that direction.
I never knew that self-acceptance was a state of being. I always thought it was merely a decision. But it’s a palpable space. An entrancing, empowering and ennobling space. It truly is the beginning of the next chapter.
* * *
And then the vasana hit….
Life is like that, I’m led to believe, until peace becomes permanent in the Fifth Dimension.
