The road

“When someone comes to me with a problem, I don’t care what it is: poor health, lack of money, unfulfilling relationships, or self esteem issues… there is only one thing that I ever work on, and that is LOVING THE SELF. I find that when we really love, accept and approve of ourselves exactly as we are, then everything in life works.” – Louise Hay

I wrote about a the Lesson in the Lesson, my experiences in a class I attended last week.  But something I’ve carried with me since are the words shared by a woman who sat next to me.   She’s a nurse and a practitioner of Reiki;  her work is done in hospice.  It was her comment about Love that struck a chord with me.

She commented that the greatest hurdle she works to overcome with patients isn’t the cancer or other diseases they’re fighting: it’s the self-loathing.  It’s the inability to forgive. It’s the hanging on to past hurts and the continuation of old fights. It’s the heartache and it’s the fear.

Her work takes her to a place of deep intimacy with those who are very ill and who want their time here to mean something.

What are we waiting for? Do we really want to be standing at death’s door before we finally accept who we are?

“The road to freedom is through the door of forgiveness.” – Louise Hay.
