"And here's the truth: it takes radical self-acceptance for us to live compassionately in the world, that's the foundation for our collective belonging. Radical compassion toward our self changes us. And when we are changed, the world is changed.
When we can accept all that we are - even the parts that are more difficult to accept - we uncover a capacity to do the same for others. We find ourselves more aligned with love within, thereby becoming a source of love for others.
When I accept all that I am, I can accept all that you are. In this posture of radical compassion, we become a powerful force of love in the world. Here it's then possible to stand in line with all those who have gone before us in creating a new us - the beloved community where there's room for everyone juas as we are.
A community that we all long for, a community where everyone belongs"
