I grow who I am. I evolve, always. As I grow, I learn to love my worts, that is, those parts of myself that still need maturing, that still need to evolve, those shadow parts of me that I used to deem as negative. I love those negative parts of me and as I learn to love them, I am protected. What am I talking about?
I have found that being a human is a work in progress. I am constantly working on getting the bugs fixed in who I am. I now accept that I am not perfect and I am not supposed to be. I keep an open mind in learning how to face my inner demons, my shadow side and I end up laughing at my demons. What this does for me is protect me because since I accept my shadow self, I do not attract more shadow aspects into my life and I feel protected from attracting negativity. I accept the dual nature of my lower self in this dualistic universe. I know I can have judgemental thoughts and I simply let them go like passing clouds in the sky. I observe them, admire them and refuse to let them define me. I know from where they originate-the shadow aspect of my ego. When I have judgemental thoughts, I remind myself that I still have work to do on myself. I do not put myself down. I am a work in progress and I am doing the work to gain greater and greater clarity and pure intent.
Since I do this, nothing can harm me. I am protected. Nothing can harm that which is the truth. There is no shadow stalking me as I am the greatest stalker of myself. Put that in your pipe and smoke yourself today.
