Via Sri Prem Baba – Awaken Love / Flower of the Day: 07/24/17

“The remembrance of oneself is closely related to the virtue of trust. At one point in your  journey, you had to use a mask because you thought that by being yourself, you would not be accepted. You thought that you would be rejected, abandoned and perhaps have to undergo some kind of deprivation. Due to this fear, you needed to protect yourself. So, removing this mask means having to face this deeply rooted fear. Try to ask yourself, “If I were to just be myself, would I be accepted?’ Look honestly to see if it’s possible now to take a step in the direction of self-confidence.”
Sri Prem Baba
