Giving Your self
Along with control and survival, approval is one of the
three basic human wants that keep us entrapped as the ego.
It's astonishing how far people will go for approval. The
multi-billion dollar cosmetic industry is just one example. The
clothing industry is another. The list goes on and on.
People pattern their behavior based on what they think will
get approval. And yes it's common to subject ourselves to
control to get approval.
The amazing thing is that it's incredibly effective to give
ourselves approval. There's no need to seek it anywhere
This is powerful stuff.
It can dissolve guilt and help us forgive ourselves.
We can benefit from doing this several hours per day.
