All of us like it, it likes all of us. Liking something connects us with others in amazing ways. In this context, there is something extremely important which is that most of us like to be like someone else?
This liking to be someone else is what affects our identity. When we be like ourselves, our liking for ourselves and others increases, whereby we share a greater level of respect and appreciation for one another.
Take one example, when we meet, if we keep speaking the same topic over and over and over and over again; then it is apparent that we will get bored and want to shift-divert our attention and association away, towards something more constructive and meaningful.
Whereas, when each of us come together with our authentic, creative and refreshing uniqueness, we like what we discuss for each of us is having a remarkable standpoint of view, of looking at the very same aspect from a renewed perspective of an enterprising and innovative nature.
However, all of this starts importantly with the liking that we nurture for our own selves and then that liking is likewise magnified and keeps intensifying as each and every other being likes one another for who they are themselves; as well as others, for who the stand to be.
Each time that we come together to collaborate, whether on a personal, professional or social level, by expressing our true nature, our true self and our divine essence, we connect with like minded souls. Its even barely without a single word spoken or any glance exchanged, the respectful admiration is beamed across and conveyed its consonance harmoniously.
There maybe various aspects, but there is one integral aspect that is coming back to the very same aspect time and again which is the matter of appreciation; all of us like to be appreciated; now in the process of seeking to be appreciated by others, if we do not appreciate ourselves, then regardless of how much ever we may strive and achieve; struggle to accomplish, there will remain the feeling of some dis satisfaction and strange emptiness; remember that – that is a feeling that is mainly being self developed by isolation of certain thoughts.
Why not liberate one’s own self from indulging in certain practices of thinking and then learn to carefully understand that a lot of the liking, the appreciation is what has been self learned? self indoctrinated? so why not likewise, adopt a positive and more understanding attitude of developing one’s outlook and approaching aspects from first appreciating and truly liking one’s own self awesomely.
Heaping praises and good wishes upon everyone else and then when it comes to the face in the mirror, if one were to look upon one’s own self dis interestingly and unenthusiastically? without passion? it may just keep adding more and more layers to the storehouse of elusiveness and mysterious quizzes, why not every day seek to recognize that all of us looking in that mirror are looking through that one look that we are sharing with that vision and that all of that very same vision is looking back at+through all of us.
In one word, it is like this; we are radiating a unique positiveness that cannot be imitated or just pretended; it is a natural expression of our being; the joy of liking and appreciating our own self, when we find and experience joy and richness in everything we do. Everything appears so much more greater and better because we are feeling better and greater as well.
Its like a permission that we are granting our own selves and removing the restrictions that we may have unknowingly placed upon ourselves by denying and depriving our own selves of even the most basic of joys which is the virtue of appreciation and liking our own selves; since when we like and enjoy ourselves, so does the world and all of us then come together with our unique personalities, at each time that we meet, having something interesting to discuss, for we have expanded our consciousness and reflected upon our true nature and our true self speaks from us to others and likewise, others true selves radiates back the remarkable greatness and wonderfulness of being all of us “like” each other; because we firstly and truly like and sincerely appreciate our ownselves and all that we are; all that we have; and diligently, prudently and wisely performing our dharma (duties) to fullfill our karma (deeds) amazingly, God bless.
