Say “Yes” to Everything

Loving every part of ourselves. Even those we may not like particularly. And I am not talking just about physical appearance here. Maybe even our pain, illness or disability. Only when we finally chose everything that we have in our lives, we become free.

I start many of my days by saying to myself and trying to feel the words:

“Chose everything. Don’t oppose anything. Then you will find peace. DON’T SAY “NO” TO ANYTHING, SAY YES TO EVERYTHING. “The boundary to what we can accept is the boundary to our freedom.”

(I borrowed the last quote from Tara Brach – Radical Acceptance)

Saying yes. And maybe not just accepting everything but even choosing everything. Every single part of our lives.

Maybe we are looking at illness or disease or impediments from the wrong point of view? I love this quote by Marianne Williamson’s book The Return to Love

“When a child presents a cut finger to his or her mother, the woman doesn’t say, “Bad cut.” Rather, she kisses the finger, showers it with love in an unconscious, instinctive activation of the healing process. Why should we think differently about critical illness? Of course people hate their cancer, or hate their AIDS, but the last thing a sick person needs is something else to hate about themselves. Healing results from a transformed perception of our relationship to illness, one in which we respond to the problem with love instead of fear.”
