The Acorn Analogy

One important concept, that helps you have a healthy sense of self-acceptance and self-esteem, is the knowledge that you are perfect, right now, just the way you are. This is true regardless of your problems, early childhood issues, body, I.Q., mistakes, etc. Consider a new definition of perfection which includes all of your imperfections. This is an important seed thought to hold in your mind as you go forward in life growing into your full potential Self. Accepting the truth of your beauty and perfection is best illustrated by looking at an acorn. In a minute I will share with you how the sprouted acorn became my business symbol and logo. First, let me explain more about the perfection of the acorn which makes it a little easier to apply this concept of your beauty and perfection to yourself.

The acorn inside its hard shell holds the seed with the potential to grow into a full oak tree. When the conditions are right, it breaks free and begins its life journey. We would not look at one acorn and say it is a good acorn and look at another and say it is a bad one. They are all good and perfect being acorns, as the seed grows it is a perfect expression of its self at every phase of its life. It is no less worthy as a seed with all its potential hidden from view than as a giant tree in full stature. All along the acorn's life path, as a seedling, a small tree, a big tree, and a giant tree, it is perfect; it is being who and what it is capable of being at every moment. Even though it is capable of growing more at each stage of its life, the acorn is still a beautiful expression of its Self at every stage. And you, like the acorn, are a beautiful expression of your Self at every stage of your life journey.

Most of us do not accept this idea very readily. We judge ourselves harshly for certain choices we have made, feeling shame that we have made mistakes, which to us proves we are not perfect. The irony is you are perfectly being you, learning and evolving with each and every choice you make, mistakes and unwise choices included. Your perfection includes your imperfections.
