Reading Tama Kieves’ writing physically hit me in the chest and knocked my spirit into alignment: Hold yourself dearly. Here are some excerpts:
Hold yourself dearly. No one has walked in your shoes but you. Hold yourself dearly. This is a practice, a prayer, an amulet and a portal.
…know the gospel of [your] own brilliant nature.
…know that even if life wasn’t going the way [you] thought [you] wanted it to go, this [is] a really cool moment in a really cool life, because all of life is really cool when you stop judging your circumstances and start loving your own spirit.
Hold yourself dearly. Hold all of it dearly. Breathe deeper…just breathe deeper, and drink in the love that is always here for you.
