S E L F - L O V E - The true essence of life, the overall PRANA of our universe.
Good morning beautiful souls. Read ahead to get some deeper understanding or a different outlook on this over looked but what I feel the MOST important topic and practice through our awakening process - any thoughts comment below and we can exchange knowledge, opinions, love and light ️
Ill start this off with a powerful and relevant quote from Rumi.
“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find the barriers within yourself that you have built against it”. Ok Basically, in my opinion - every interaction stems from the recognition of your true self.
So many beautiful souls of today suffer from such low self-esteem and lack of acceptance that when you sit and think what the reasoning behind it is, it is quite puzzling. We have everything we need to thrive, yet are tormented for honouring our spiritual self.
Self-love is a soft concept for many, since our upbringing emphasises serving the needs of others. To nurture ourselves first is “selfish” so individuals have learnt to disregard this and have become ignorant to meeting their own needs.
The path to self-love is slow and gradual, requiring patience and commitment to create an empowering inner self worth.
Underneath all of the “problems” you carry around is just one belief – “I am not good enough”. Self-love is expressed to the degree that you are vulnerable.
By exposing your cracks, you give yourself permission to be authentic and thus attract like-minded individuals.
Contained with the vulnerability is the need to love yourself again.
Today, you will find countless books, Facebook posts, blogs and articles embrace loving yourself foremost so others will love you. While I totally acknowledge this as a very big role in loving yourself, I personally think it should not be your sole reason.
Your duty is to honour yourself primarily, because deep within our soul is the nature of ‘self-nurturing’. To accept yourself as whole means to embody your strengths and limitations – your shadow self. (Post continued into comments below) .... - 32 minutes ago
