self-esteem comes when we are deeply connected to our true selves.
true self is in our heart and is the connection with God.
connection can bear all things with its great love.
surrendering to a higher power and when we contemplate the endless wonders
of the universe, this immense love in our own hearts grows and grows.
of high self-esteem, such as patience, courage, strength and self-assuredness
develop when we expand the love within our own hearts.
love manifests when we trust deeply in the connection with God and we turn
over everything the Him.
greater the connection with God, the more love we feel for ourselves and
understanding of ourselves and others comes when we have enough love to
accept everything, just the way it is, without criticism or judgment
of all things--the seemingly bad and the seemingly good leads to universal
love, inner harmony and balance.
complete acceptance of ourselves and what each moment brings, the heart
can grow and embrace everything, both inside and out.
the bad and the good are accepted completely, love is all there is.
heart full of love transforms everything and everyone into love.
heart filled with love receives all the blessings of God each and every
we love completely, every moment then becomes a fulfillment unto itself,
and all the glories of God are manifest everywhere.
