“The first step toward improving your relationship with yourself is to accept yourself just the way you are. You don’t need to learn how to love yourself. You need to unlearn all of the reasons you reject yourself, and by nature you love yourself. You love not the image you project or the way you are, but you love yourself because of what you are. Then you start to enjoy yourself until you love yourself so much that you give yourself everything you need. You don’t leave yourself until last anymore. The more you enjoy the presence of yourself, the more you enjoy your life, and the more you enjoy the presence of everyone around you.”
Don Miguel Ruiz, in “The Voice of Knowledge”

Compiler’s Note: There was a cut & paste error in yesterday’s message unfortunately. Sorry about that of course. The final paragraph of yesterday’s “Ponder” message from The Belief Formula by Pete Koerner should have been this:
“The simple truth is that a little belief goes a long way toward seeing what you would like to see. Effective prayer depends on belief. When Jesus spoke of belief, He was referring to a belief in the process He was teaching, not of belief in any particular dogma or doctrine. This process Jesus was speaking of is the natural process of God, or the Universe; and the principal component in its operation is belief.”
