Keys to Happiness

ID-10044464The more compassion and love we have for ourselves, the greater the capacity we have to give compassion and love to others. By accepting ourselves, we open the floodgates to greater happiness.

Self-Love is the least selfish thing we can do. For when we free ourselves, we free others from our judgment. We also set free from judgment those who remind us of our own short-comings. In so doing, we gift to others the permission to love themselves,  and thus the keys to their own contentment.

Forgive yourself. If you could have done better, you would have. Perhaps you were unable to do better because you lacked the resources at that time.  Hindsight is 20/20…

Allow Grace into your heart. This will help you to avoid repeating the same errors in judgment. Grace also means you recognize your own humanity. (To err is human,  afterall).

The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong. -Mahatma Gandhi

It’s easy to love the parts of us that shine.  The challenge can be in loving all of our parts,  as together,  each part makes us whole.

So forgiveness and grace release judgment, allowing us to open our hearts to ourselves. Loving oneself, completely, brings happiness.

Namaste.
