As I Began to Love Myself

Audiolugu: “As I Began to Love Myself” (Text by Charlie Chaplin, voiceover by Harald Lepisk, music by Rob Costlow)

As I began to love myself I found that anguish and emotional suffering are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth.

Today, I know, this is AUTHENTICITY.

As I began to love myself I understood how much it can offend somebody as I try to force my desires on this person, even though I knew the time was not right and the person was not ready for it, and even though this person was me.

Today I call it RESPECT.

As I began to love myself I stopped craving for a different life, and I could see that everything that surrounded me was inviting me to grow.

Today I call it MATURITY.

As I began to love myself I understood that at any circumstance, I am in the right place at the right time, and everything happens at the exactly right moment, so I could be calm.

Today I call it SELF-CONFIDENCE.

As I began to love myself I quit steeling my own time, and I stopped designing huge projects for the future. Today, I only do what brings me joy and happiness, things I love to do and that make my heart cheer, and I do them in my own way and in my own rhythm.

Today I call it SIMPLICITY.

As I began to love myself I freed myself of anything that is no good for my health – food, people, things, situations, and everything the drew me down and away from myself. At first I called this attitude a healthy egoism.

Today I know it is LOVE OF ONESELF.

As I began to love myself I quit trying to always be right, and ever since I was wrong less of the time.

Today I discovered that is MODESTY.

As I began to love myself I refused to go on living in the past and worry about the future. Now, I only live for the moment, where EVERYTHING is happening.

Today I live each day, day by day, and I call it FULFILLMENT.

As I began to love myself I recognized that my mind can disturb me and it can make me sick. But As I connected it to my heart, my mind became a valuable ally.

Today I call this connection WISDOM OF THE HEART.

We no longer need to fear arguments, confrontations or any kind of problems with ourselves or others. Even stars collide, and out of their crashing new worlds are born.

Today I know THAT IS LIFE!

Tee seda, mida armastad ja tee seda tihti

Muusikapalaga jutustus: “Jaga oma kirge” (Loetud Holstee manifest)

See on Sinu elu.

Tee seda, mida armastad ja tee seda tihti.

Kui miski ei meeldi Sulle, muuda seda.

Kui Sulle ei meeldi Sinu töö, tule sealt ära.

Kui Sul pole aega, siis pane telekas kinni.

Kui otsid enda elu armastust, lõpeta; ta ootab Sind, kui hakkad tegema seda, mida armastad.

Ära upu analüüsimisse, elu on lihtne.

Kõik tunded on ilusad.

Süües naudi iga väikest suutäit.

Ava oma meel, käed ja süda uutele kogemustele ja inimestele – meie erinevus ühendab meid.

Küsi inimeselt, keda kohtad, mis on tema kirg ja jaga temaga enda inspireerivat unistust.

Reisi tihti; ära eksimine aitab ennast leida.

Mõned võimalused tulevad vaid üks kord elus, haara neist.

Elu võlu peitubki inimestes, keda kohtad ja asjades, mida koos nendega lood.

Seega mine välja ja hakka looma.

Elu on lühike.

Ela oma unistust ja jaga oma kirge.

(Holstee manifesti kirjutasid Dave, Mike ja Fabian)
