“You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.” ~ Buddha.
“We are each gifted in a unique and important way. It is our privilege and our adventure to discover our own special light.” ~ Mary Dunbar; British artist, illustrator, and teacher.
Many people think that the greatest gift is doing for others, so they spend their lives giving and giving, exhausting themselves and suffering for and with others, whether these others are close loved ones or just acquaintances; however, it is superficial, man-made love which they give, while they fool themselves and swim in pride telling themselves that they are really good people for constantly thinking and doing about others.
They live this life of sacrifice for others while neglecting their own bodies and minds, because they believe this is what Jesus, Buddha, and others did; and all because of the narrow-minded interpretation religions have brought to the mind of man.
Putting all nonsense and absurdity aside, the most important thing to do first in life is to take care of yourself, of your body and mind, because this is self-love.
How do you think Jesus, Buddha, Hermes, and all these ancient masters did what they did, had the deep wisdom and understanding to extremely love others…?? They knew that self-love is the heart of spreading love, real love essence out into the world; because without embracing first self-love you are neglecting your true self–and if you do not even love yourself truly (spirit, body, and mind), how can real love expand outwardly onto others…??
It is the popular madness of people to say words of love and do acts of love, and say a prayer for this and some prayer for that; however, their bodies are neglected, their minds are unwise, their lives are lived blindly. They do not even notice this in their narrow views and understanding, but their love is superficial because no true self-love exists in them.
And if you are reading this, and you are one of these people who do this superficial love while neglecting taking care of your body and mind, you recognize deep inside that I am talking about you, even though your ego wants to fight these words and look for excuses.
I tell the truth because the truth is the only reality, the one which makes me truly blissful, and the only one which can help anyone develop themselves. It is up to you to remain unwise and foolish, or to see your ego as it is, get out of your comfort zone, and take care of yourself, develop true self-love.
