Do You See Yourself as Lovable?

Do You See Yourself as Lovable?

Being lovable isnít a superficial quality; it is a quality of spirit. If you can see yourself as spirit, it wonít matter what conditioning has occurred in the past, whether you were fortunate enough to be raised with loving values or so unfortunate that you were discouraged and made to feel ugly and worthless.

In our most inmost being, we are all completely lovable because spirit is love. Beyond what anyone can make you think or feel about yourself, your unconditioned spirit stands, shining with a love nothing can tarnish.

If begin lovable really is the secret to attraction, then there is no need for anxious searching, because your own being, which can never be lost, doesnít have to be found.

The whole futile process of making yourself attractive to others, of constantly waiting for someone elseís response, of desperately comparing yourself with an ideal image can come to an end. The only requirement is a shift in perception, for those who cannot find love perceive themselves as not being lovable.

This is not true, but they make it seem true by linking their perception to a powerful system of beliefs.

What creates romance is the ability to see yourself as lovable.

This shift in perception happens not by changing who you are but by seeing who you are and then shining it forth. If you were able to exhibit the full grandeur of your being, your whole life would be a romance, one long love story dedicated to ecstasy and joy.

Adapted from The Path to Love, by Deepak Chopra (Three Rivers Press, 1997).
