You are where you need to be

You are where you need to be
This is a short meditation on staying in the present and accepting who you are.

You are perfect the way you are.

You are exactly where you need to be at this moment.

More from YourTango: 10 Stages: How Love Transforms Over Time

If you change tomorrow, then tomorrow you will also be where you need to be.

You can only be who you are and where you are as a result of all of your ancestry and all of evolution, because no single event can be taken out of the context of the whole.

Change will happen when you are ready, and not because you feel it should happen, or because you feel changing something will fix things.

Never compare yourself with others.

It is only the mind that creates confusion, conflict and insecurity. You are not your mind.

Genuine acceptance is the path to inner peace.

You do not have to be, nor should you be, anyone or anyplace other than who and where you are right now.

If you want to change something, let it come from a place of challenging yourself and learning and growing and not because you want to fix yourself or make yourself more acceptable to yourself and to others. The former path leads to abundance and the latter to endless suffering.

If any or all of this resonates with you, change the ‘you’ to ‘I’ and say it out loud to yourself every day.

Try saying it while looking at yourself in the mirror.

Say it even if you don’t fully believe it.

You are your own biggest critic. You alone construct monuments to shame and insecurities. And you alone have the power to destroy them.

10 Stages: How Love Transforms Over Time

By

A lifelong relationship can be distilled down into 10 stages. Unfortunately many relationships do not make it past the fifth or sixth stage, but the universal factor necessary to reach "the end" is communication. Without it, there's no chance of sustaining a dynamic and fruitful partnership. Without it, relationships turn stale and resentment ... Read more

The danger of making assumptions in relationships

By

One of the most common problems that I see when working with couples is the game of assumptions. This is when people infer based on previous behavior what the other is thinking and feeling. No space is left for something new. The assumer feels defensive and self-protective and the “assumee” feels shut out and not seen. The more rooted a couple ... Read more

Why I meditate

By

I have been interested in meditation for years, but it was only until fairly recently that I completed a Vedic meditation training here in NYC and committed to a regular practice. In the Vedic tradition, a mantra is used to anchor the meditation. One of the biggest benefits of meditation, as far as I am concerned, is that it is a consciousness and practice ... Read more
