Our misconceptions about ourselves, others, and 

our world keeps us trapped in illusions of rivalry, 

envy, greed, jealousy, competition, division, strife,

 struggle, conflict, illness, low self-esteem, 

self-hatred, rejection, feelings of worthlessness, 

lack, and suffering, to mention a few.

Self-acceptance, being who we truly are, and seeing 

ourselves as a child of God... without the need to prove 

ourselves or outshine all the other stars in the galaxy... 

is a healthier approach to life and living.

May we allow these truths to permeate our minds and

guide us throughout our lives.
