“Nobody out there is perfect. We’re not trying to compete in the perfection stakes. You can love yourself and be imperfect, as God loves us unconditionally. I really like the image of the water rat, this scruffy little rat sniffles around the edge of muddy river banks. It doesn’t look like much, but the little rat is sitting there on a log by the side of the river, and he is what he is. He isn’t apologizing for being a water rat, but simply stands inside a divinity and a spirituality that is the animal spirit of “water rat.”
You are what you are. You might be an Adonis in the making, or an incredible goddess energy, or you might just be a little water rat who stands in front of the bathroom mirror in the morning and says: I’m a water rat and that’s ok. I don’t have to convince people or act to please them. I don’t have to work to win their affection. I don’t have to pay for them so they will love me, because I love myself. I am what I am. I going to go out today, I’m going to believe in myself, I’m going to be honorable. I’m going to concentrate on people and treat them fairly. I’m going to treat myself fairly, for by nurturing myself, my energy will build and I will become secure. I know that money flows TO security, and away FROM insecurity. So by being more secure, I will prosper.”
Stuart Wilde, in “The Little Money Bible”
