BECOMING – The Velveteen Rabbit Philosophy

Velveteen Rabbit quote

An extract from the Velveteen Rabbit expresses an interesting view.  I believe that we can all develop a deeper self-appreciation.  We can learn to show gratitude for all compliments, a simple “Thank You” in response to “you look lovely today”, instead of the oft heard denials, excuses and reasons why it is not true.  We honour those who generously share their positive thoughts with us if we acknowledge them.

As the population ages the idea of accepting the aging process will become more normal, and hopefully we will find a way to appreciate it.  My Teddy is older than me, he too is rather thread bare and has a flat nose from being slept on when I was a child, but he is treasured.  Some would undoubtedly scoff at the idea of keeping a stuffed toy for so long, but it symbolises the security that little bear gave me as I grew up.  As I age, I hope there will always be people who can see the beauty within, that I ‘become’ able to embody the unconditional love that is mine.

Those that are brittle, have sharp edges, or need to be looked after, can change and move towards ‘becoming’ REAL by growing loving kindness within that will eventually be revealed and spread forth.

MAY I BE FILLED WITH LOVING KINDNESS, MAY I BE WELL,

MAY I BE PEACEFUL AND AT EASE, MAY I BE HAPPY.

Love & Light, Penny.
