Acceptance is the universal currency of real friendship.
It does not warp or shape or wrench a person to be anything other than what they are.
- Joan Chittister
"We begin by making friends with ourselves, accepting ourselves completely, with all our strengths and weaknesses. Then we can expand that acceptance to all those we love and then to all beings. Everyone. Everywhere. Regardless of race, color, sexual preference, nationality, or intelligence.
"This is how we find peace in our hearts. This is our gift for ourselves. This is our gift to world peace.
"God gives me all the willingness I need to let go of my judgements. I can feel my heart filling with peace and love as I practice acceptance."
