|How do I learn to love myself?|
In your two meditation practices today, attempt to feel the presence of that true assistance. In stillness and in silence, feel this within your life and around you. These meditation practices will begin to open a greater sensitivity within you, a whole new sense. You will begin to discern things that are present, even though you cannot see them. You will be able to respond to ideas and information, even though you cannot hear the source of the message yet. This is the actual process in creative thinking, for people receive ideas; they do not create them. You are part of a greater life. Your personal life is the vehicle for its expression. Your individuality, then, becomes more highly cultivated and more joyful, a prison no longer for you, but the form of your joyful expression.
True assistance is available to you. Practice this day feeling its abiding presence in your life.

P.S. Today, February 17, 2017, as I return to this Step, I can say beyond a shadow of a doubt that I do indeed love myself. I have reached a state of acceptance and appreciation of myself just the way I am.
