One of the great mysteries of our faith is the recognition that we are loved for what and who we are and we are forgiven. At a basic level this may seem unrealistic or impossible. So we ask, why is it so difficult for us to accept total love and acceptance. In the ordinary course of life we find in ourselves a kind of acceptance of our flaws, although it might involve some ignorance or denial of our bigger problems. But complete acceptance of the totality of our being is actually impossible at the level of our mind. It has to come from a higher level, from a consciousness that’s both within us and far beyond us at a time. The mind alone cannot answer the question of the heart.
