“See people for who they are instead of who you want them to be. Then accept them as they are rather than judging them for who they are not. The more accepting you become of yourself, the more you can see others in the same light. The core of every human being is the same – unconditioned consciousness – the Self. See the Self in others. If you are religious or spiritual, you can think in terms of seeing the divine in one another. Honor your own Self and hone the Self in others. The Eastern greeting Namaste is similar in meaning to Hebrew and Hawaiian greetings. It means, “The Self in me honors and salutes the Self in you.” (My Self salutes Your Self.)
Ponder during your daily activities and interactions how much energy is used up in defending various positions that make you feel “right,” worthy, okay. When you begin to realize your own precious, unique self-worth, the need to define yourself will diminish, and your body will naturally relax.”
Dr. Joan Borysenko, in “Minding the Body, Mending the Mind”
