A Nudge to Perceive Yourself Differently
Don't focus so narrowly on who you need to be.
"In a recent interview, I was asked, 'Do you love who you've become?' My response was 'I don't believe I've become anyone, I've just released all that was blocking me from who I really am.' When we release our ego's false perceptions of who we are or who we need to be, we can surrender to the truth, which is that we are
love. The love I speak of is an intuitive voice reminding us we're great and worthy, leading us in the right direction and helping us let go of resentment and return to peace. This inner presence has been stifled, but through the practice of self-forgiveness and acceptance we can reawaken this peaceful self-love state."
