A lot of people try to counteract the ‘I am not good enough’ with ‘I am good enough.’
In other words, they take the opposite and they try to invest it. That still keeps the world at the level of polarities.
The art is to go behind the polarities. So the act is to go not to the world of: ‘I am good’ to counteract ‘I am bad,’ Or ‘I am lovable’ as opposed to ‘I am unlovable.’
But go behind it to ‘I am.’
I am. I am.
And ‘I am’ includes the fact that I do crappy things, and I do beautiful things.
And I am.
