The ICING Can Never be the CAKE Part II
Two questions remain:
WHY do we not know our own beauty and wholeness?
How do we learn that we, the cake, are not enough?
When we are born as babies, we believe we are enough. The world then teaches us otherwise through the educational system, parents, the media, peers, extended family and others. Because others believe they are NOT ENOUGH, they cannot fully grasp that small children are enough.
You can't teach what you don't believe about yourself.
So, we are programmed out of our knowing our perfection.
The spiritual/personal journey is one of de-programming, and re-programming ourselves back to self-love, self-acceptance, and seeing the beauty / wholeness / loveability of all others.
