As your willingness to become more self aware grows, you cannot flow easily without allowing all that arises within to be seen clearly and with equanimity. What do we mean by this?
Since you are a multi-dimensional being, the movement of thoughts, emotions, body changes and existential experiences comes and goes. These movements are not YOU. You can treat them like watching a movie but with virtual reality plus sensations added.
Although these sensations feel so real and they are real, they are happening to your slave self or illusionary self. By choosing to be this more expanded being watching this all, it begins to be easier to see that you are not any of these actions and that they are happening within your greater being. Self acceptance naturally emerges. It may not be without bumps and hollows but the path to self knowing becomes so much easier because you are not denigrating yourself and getting caught up in the details of the illusionary programs being fed through that slave self.
You will become so much more gentler on yourself or at least begin to practice self care more often which may include a diet changes, relaxation time, meeting with friends, nature walks, gentle exercises, environment detoxing, begin new ventures with less fear and doubts and less mental thinking. Even just doing breath awareness for a minute can divulge so much and destress the body. Its like your laptop needing the battery charged and as soon as you plug in the cord, you can see the charger increase the percentage of charge almost immediately. We are vast electrical frequency beings that have been dumbed down to a mere shell of a self trying to decipher all the problems of life and the world through programs that we didn't design.
Self acceptance is the first phase to stepping up our journey to knowing our true self. Its a huge step but once momentum is gained, you will soar to greater acceptance of things that cannot change or take much longer to shift or switch to another positive direction altogether.
