I'm loving me...

"It is not for me to change you. The question is, how can I be of service to you without diminishing your degrees of freedom?"
R. Buckminster Fuller

"Let me not to the marriage of true minds admit impediments. Love is not love which alters when it alteration finds, or bends with the remover to remove: O no! it is an ever-fixed mark that looks on tempests and is never shaken; It is the star to every wandering bark, whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken. Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks within his bending sickle's compass come: Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks, but bears it out even to the edge of doom. If this be error and upon me proved, I never writ, nor no man ever loved." ~William Shakespeare

As i learn to forgive others for they knew not what they did, i became forgiving of myself, and how grown to more fully LOVE myself than I ever have before.

How did I learn this? I'm in two weekly Masterminds where our Mastermind Leader welcomes our Masterminders and reads the following opening covenant...

I RELEASE I release myself to the mastermind because I am strong when I have others to help me.

I BELIEVE I believe the combined intelligence of the mastermind creates a wisdom far beyond my own.

I UNDERSTAND I understand that I will more easily create positive results in my life when I am open to looking at my self, my problems and opportunities from another's point of view.

I DECIDE I decide to release my desire totally in trust to the mastermind and I am open to accepting new possibilities.

I FORGIVE I forgive my self for mistakes I have made. I also forgive others who have hurt me in the past so I can move into the future with a clean slate.

I ASK I ask the mastermind to hear what I really want; my goals, my dreams and my desires, and I hear my mastermind partners supporting me in MY fulfillment.

I ACCEPT I know, relax, and accept, believing that the working power of the mastermind will respond to my every need. I am grateful knowing this is so.
