Philautia is the Greek word for Self-Love, and having actively striven for just that over a sizeable length of my journey, I held a sacramental rite in a public declaration of devotional dedication to my divine dharma.
At a location I find magical, I took vows to love, honor, and cherish myself, and I celebrated with loved ones my graduation beyond Self-Doubt and into Unconditional Self-Love.
Here is the captured moment of my Philautia Ceremony:
Synchronistically, I fumbled a line that was meant to be:
Acceptance of what is, including my perfectly human imperfections.
And so it is.
