Society has set parameters around what is deemed to be acceptable and unacceptable insofar as how we as human beings, are supposed to look, how we are supposed to act and to feel. As we get older (and a little wiser!) we realise that these ‘rules’ can be harsh and unrealistic.
I happened across this article and it resonated so much with me that I had to re-post it here. I hope that it helps all of us, and our children and grandchildren, to realise that the expectations set down by society can be damaging and demeaning. Learning self love and acceptance goes a long way in loving who we are and our importance in the universe, as does learning to accept those around us in the same way.
I have always been fascinated by other cultures and the lessons that they teach – this is a perfect example from the Japanese culture. I am not one for cultural appropriation, however I firmly believe in cultural appreciation as other cultures can teach us so much, as we can teach others lessons from our culture.
So, I hope this article and the concept of ‘wabi-sabi’ helps each of you in accepting who you are. If we can begin by accepting each other in the same way, our small collective consciousness can help influence other collectives and assist moving this aspect of our society into acceptance.
I am an holistic health practitioner, meditation teacher, reiki master/healer, and soul mentor; as well as performing space clearing/cleansing and spirit work. Please email me if you would like to discuss further or have any questions.
