You can get in touch with the completely content part of yourself that resides beneath your self-image, need for acknowledgment or identification with the roles that you play. It’s worth trying because, when you connect with that part of yourself, you’re free. You’re free to enjoy a consistently pleasant sense of yourself that doesn’t depend on whimsical and tenuous approval from the outside world. You can develop such a pervasive feeling of satisfaction that it accompanies you no matter what’s going on around you. It hinges on one thing…

Acceptance of what is.
