In order to realize our happiness, to uncover what already resides inside of us, unconditional acceptance is required.  We need to put all our cards on the table, from everything we love about our life to all the parts we hope no-one else notices.  All our creativity next to all our anger; all our shame along side of all our courage.  All the things we hope will happen and all the things we wish had never happened.  Everything needs to be acceptable…. Once we are able to unconditionally accept everything inside ourselves, all that is left is courage, creativity, comfort, compassion and connectedness. Sounds good, right?
