Accepting removes the obstacles to interacting without judgement. You are constantly bombarded by the media, family, friends, and culture telling you who you should be and who you should not be. Block out the outside voices by listening to your inner knowing and accept yourself as you are. Judging, shaming, and punishing ourselves and others stops the flow of love. Accepting empowers openness, creativity, and freedom. Self-acceptance and accepting others are the highest forms of love in action. Acceptance ignites peace.
