You don't have to say, do, or think certain things to be accepted by God. You don't have say, do, or think certain things to be your Real Self, to be in the Light, to be awake or "enlightened."
You are already complete and perfect as you are --- NOW. The big misconception of the spiritual path, really any path you see yourself on although they are all "spiritual," is that you have to change yourself in some way. You have to do this practice, or abstain from doing something else, say a certain prayer all the time, or eat certain foods, etc. etc. etc. Ask yourself what it is you believe that you must do to earn God's Love, to be in Grace, to fit in. What do you think you need to do change yourself? Do you see how your belief that you need to change yourself is preventing you from seeing how incredibly holy and Divine you are, right now.
Your divinity, your holiness, is your inheritance from God. There is NO THING that can change that, regardless of what you believe about yourself. For what you believe and what is Truth are completely different.
Accept yourself NOW in this moment, exactly as you are. Isn't the most amazing and blessed thing that we don't have to do anything other than be who we really are? We don't have to add anything --- we just have to subtract, release what is false that covers up our recognition of the purity that is inherent. You see all these flaws in the diamond, but the diamond is completely perfect, no inclusions or flaws. This is how God sees you all the time. If you don't believe that, ask Him, and then be really ready for the answer. Because He waits to tell you this. He waits to tell you how much He loves you. You just aren't listening. You have to take away the chatter of the world because it is false and leads you to believe something about yourself and others that is not true. God is One. If He is Divine, which I can wholeheartedly assure you He is, then you are as well, because He is ALL that exists.
This doesn't mean that you can't take actions to "improve" yourself. It is the recognition of what needs to be improved that allows you the higher perspective of recognizing that you are perfect as is. It sounds paradoxical because it is. Our very existence as Divinity in a human body is paradoxical. We can recognize our perfection while also recognizing what we need to change to allow more of that Divinity to shine through. For the Divinity cannot NOT be there. It is just covered up by the clouds of your false beliefs. By removing the clouds, the false beliefs, the Sun, the Divinity is able to come through in magnificent brilliance. You are not only in the Light, you Are the Light.
