Acceptance. You must accept yourself and others for who they are. Each person has a unique gift to give the world – a world that is so diverse and rich in talent. Like a puzzle, each person is a piece that is needed to complete the puzzle and make it whole. Unconditional love allows for the acceptance of others just as they are. A handicapped or disabled person can teach the world much, much more than others that are deemed “normal” by society. They look at the world through simplistic eyes and they are the most grounded and in tune with Spirit, because they don’t allow ego – can’t allow ego – to interfere and judge. The next time you have the opportunity to be around a person with a disability such as Down’s Syndrome or Autism, watch how they view life. It is with innocence and non-judgement. It is with acceptance for all. It is with unconditional love, because of their strong connection with Divine Spirit. They love without abandon, without fear of rejection, without shame or guilt. Their emotions are high and passionate – there is no filter. Pay attention and listen to these great teachers for it is through them that you will learn of love without conditions. Accept and Believe. Faith. Hope. Live. Love. Amen.
