What is Self Love?

Be where you are or you will miss your life.  Buddha In considering Self Love and what it means, you may well find yourself wrestling with the idea of selfishness.  Self Love exists outside the box in which most people live.  Self Love has nothing to do with ego and selfishness.  It has to do with who we truly are beyond the body and this identification of who we truly are extends to all life. Loving the Self that we are means loving that Energy… that Flow of Life that runs through and animates the body and all living things.  Self Love is loving the very Breath of Life that we are.
