#MindU~~ The most meaningful connection we can make — is the one we make with ourselves. Is it truthful or fake? Is it loving or critical? Is it authentic or cheap? Does it go deep or is it surface gloss? No amount of self improvement can overcome any lack of self-acceptance.
On the one occasion I was in an audience listening to Mother Teresa talking, she said “Honesty and transparency make you vulnerable. Be honest and transparent anyway.” Yet the lies we tell other people, are nothing like the lies we tell ourselves. The lies we tell ourselves, and others about ourselves, can become so embedded in our mindset and makeup that when we want to remove them, we cannot, without removing our very soul. #MorningZenThought
