Faults and All

“I always find beauty in things that are odd and imperfect – they are much more interesting” ~ Marc Jacobs

You don’t need to get rid of your ego. Horray! For only the ego wants to get rid of itself. You don’t even need to change or fix your personality. For so many years I was trying to kill my ego. I would act saintly, holy and enlightened. I would meditate for hours. I would read spiritual books for hours. I would be miserable for hours. I was always trying to be someone I was not. Then I got so fed up with it all I just decided to be myself. I couldn’t stop laughing when I realised true freedom is that simple. Just accept myself as I am; imperfectly perfect. Faults and all.

I now love ALL the parts of myself, even the unloveable parts I so desperately tried to change. I used to get so frustrated because I would speak too quickly, say the unspiritual thing or laugh too hard. I tried to suppress all these things because I considered them ‘bad’. But my very attempts to get rid of these parts made me unloveable. I became cold, withdrawn and judgemental. Now I embrace every GOD DAMN aspect of the Perfect Identity I am. It’s so amazing that the more you love every aspect of yourself the less you function as the ego. There was nothing I needed to heal or fix but simply return to my joyful being.

I don’t feel guilty anymore about being me! I am still moody. I am still sensitive. I am still a Debbie downer sometimes. But it’s all okay. I don’t beat myself up about it. I cry tender human tears and live with an open-vulnerable heart.  So never ever give up your authenticity, truth and heart for the ideas of what it means to be a ‘perfect’ person. It doesn’t exist. May you be okay with just being good old you.

    I love the way you look at us humans.
    It is amazing how the feelings you express here are brought to physical reality(whatever that is) in your dance. I can feel Your love and acceptance every time we dance.

      Thank you so much for this sweet comment Colin! I feel exactly the same love and acceptance on the dance floor from you when we dance as-well. Until we meet on the dance floor again, keep being the beautiful human you are 🙂
