Wayne Dyer gives us some really simple suggestions of how to let your own soul clap its hands and receive your applause. The key is to love yourself as God does, for yourself alone. Here are some suggestions for adotping this kind of love into your life:
- Begin to see yourself as a soul with a body rather than a body with a soul. Look at those indicators of aging as merit badges and try to look past them into the part of yourself that has never aged.
- Ignore the media that bombards your consciousness each day encouraging you to hang on to eternal youth. Be proud of yourself not for how you look, but for the content of your character. Repeat often the famous phrase from La Cage aux Folles. "I am what I am."
- When telling the persons that you love of your feelings emphasize what you truly love about them rather than how they happen to look.
- Comment on others for their inner beauty and refuse to partake of gossip that emphasizes appearances.
