You are not designed for everyone to like you.
I have learned, that the person I have to ask for forgiveness from the most is: myself. You must love yourself. You have to forgive yourself, everyday, whenever you remember a shortcoming, a flaw, you have to tell yourself “That’s just fine”. You have to forgive yourself so much, until you don’t even see those things anymore. Because that’s what love is like.
High understanding comes from not understanding at all.
In any search you will experience if it is authentic for you. It must be also alive with love. Love is a great support in searching. Not love that necessarily needs an objective reflection, but love which is the joy of being. The wholeness, the sense of wholeness or unity of being which arises in this form as love towards all. It doesn’t pick and choose. Like how the sun shines. It doesn’t prefer to shine on beautiful flowers and not on a dirty place. It is everywhere equal.
