This will bring a lot of resistance initially. Because we do not want to love our self, as we do not like our self, as we do not even know our own self. And believe me, it’s not an easy task.
To love yourself, you need to first know yourself. Know who you are, know why you do what you do and why you do not do what you do not do. Know, what you want to do and still do not do.
Let’s start this journey of Loving our own self FIRST, if we have already “fought the resistance”.
What happens when you start to love yourself?
You start to look at yourself, look at your physical body, your thoughts, your emotions, your feelings, your past, present, future, your actions everything. You know all the discrepancies “you” have.
Now you exactly know the amount of garbage you carry, all the useless non senses you treasure… Everything you didn’t do, which you could have easily done.
When you love yourself, you love everything you have… Your own earthily possessions, divine possessions (your strengths), your family, your job, your profession, your neighborhood, your society, and the whole universe at large.
Now, you know how it feels to be loved. Now you know the value of loving selflessly… Loving self/others/everything/everyone around…. You also start loving the nonliving things…
Now you give/get/want only Love, happiness, blissfulness, harmony… You get addicted to all these. And this is the BEST SELFLESS state one can ever achieve.
Please start the journey and see where it takes you… Happy to be with you throughout this journey…
