Have You Accepted Your Humanity?

December 3, 2014 by Comments

“If you haven’t yet accepted your humanity, with all the magnificence and folly inherent in that, now might be a good time to start.”  John Roger

inspirational words just don't cut it! Ya think? Maybe this is the root of all my “dis-ease” at being a human.  I HAVE NOT REALLY ACCEPTED MY HUMANITY.  Period.

No matter how good I’m getting at shifting and stepping into being with ALL the experiences that show up for me, there is a REALLY DEEP PART of me that STILL DOES NOT LIKE the folly, the sucky parts and the suffering and pain. Again, period.

If I really and deeply accept my humanity, does this means that I can never complain or bitch about anything that happens in the folly category because if I have TRULY ACCEPTED my humanity, than there’s no reason to kvetch?

So how do I go about TOTALLY ACCEPTING MY HUMANITY –  the magnificence AND the folly?

Here’s an idea:  I atone* – I become “reconciled, and in harmony” with what is.  In other words, I step into AT ONE with all that is.

I atone for my misperceptions, for my limited thinking, for my self-abuse, for all of the ways in which I keep myself small, remembering that when I’m AT ONE with the universe I can accept ALL OF MYSELF and transform into a person who accepts all of their humanity. 

How do you accept all of your humanity?

* ORIGIN OF ATONE – Middle English, to become reconciled, from at on in harmony, from at + on one.  Merriam Webster Dictionary
