It takes time for us to grow into a fully realized Self. But if we
beat ourselves up and punish ourselves, constantly “giving ourselves a
hard time”, then we’ll have a much harder time getting to our goal.
Be happy with yourself at whatever stage of your experience you are…
Whether you are still in the seed stage, sprout stage, small weak
seedling stage, you are on your way to becoming that “mighty tree”.
Be patient with yourself, be gentle, be kind, and most of all, be
loving and accepting of wherever you are on the journey of life.
