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.

I See Only Love

Today, as I go through my day and come across those I know and those I don’t, I will see only love. I will look into their hearts and see into their souls. I will take the time to get to that deep space that connects us all and I will stay there for a long while. I will feel the loving energy flowing between us, and I will feel our vibrations lifting together. Today, I will see only love. Tonight, as my mind reflects on the day, I will allow my heart to see each person again. As they come into view, I will give myself permission to send them love, to see them through a lens of love, and to shower them with rays of love. I will lay my head on my pillow and fall asleep knowing that I am connected with everything and everyone… knowing that I am love just as they are. Just as we are. Tonight, I will dream only love.  I will see only love....
