Acceptance

O friend, understand:  the body

is like an ocean,

rich with hidden treasures.

Open your inmost chamber and lights its lamp.

Within the body are gardens,

rare flowers, peacocks, the inner Music;

within the body a lake of bliss,

on it the white soul-swans take their joy.

-Mirabai

A common trend I’ve noticed is the lack of self-acceptance.  Our bodies are sacred, and they journey through the ebbs and tide of life.  We, like a flower close and bloom, focusing on different aspects of our journey.  My desire for all it to choose self-love.  Self-acceptance.  Compassion for ourselves.  When we can love ourselves, we can freely love others.
