A “Gentle” Reply to How to Love Yourself.

This is a reply to a comment on a previous post called Consciousness and Loving Yourself. You can read it here.

The comment was: I enjoyed reading this, but would need some gentle persuasion to love myself. I have done many things in my life I am not very proud of. And you & I come from 2 very different worlds, but living in the same.

My Reply:

I too have done many things I’m not proud of, and not sure how different our worlds were/are. Maybe you can tell me why you think that way?
So true we are all living in the same world.

Gentle persuasion…to Love Yourself…maybe I could be a little nicer…something to think about.
I guess it’s the non-love I have for myself coming out!!!

So gently I say to you, Is it not better to Love Yourself, rather than Hate Yourself?

For example, do you love your children? Of course!!
Do you always like what they do? NO! But you never quit Loving Them!

Now just apply that to Yourself!

The reason you Love Yourself is that you are a Spiritual Creator with a Spark of Divinity!

What you do or think is Not the Real You!

The past may be different for each of us, but we can start to Love Ourselves, NOW.

That’s how we change the past, and that is how we create our Future and Find Our Dream.

Is that gentle…and persuasive?

Please let me know if this helps. I have much more inside of me bursting to get out. LOL!

Why You Should Love Yourself

Ya, really, why?

Simple, what’s the alternative…Hate yourself!

I submit you already do that. Your mind sends you thoughts all day long on how stupid, idiotic and generally bad you are. And somehow you believe it.

So how about start believing that you are good, worthy, and that God Loves You, so maybe You should too!

All the great and successful people talk about it too, although they don’t necessarily use those words. I am hearing “Love yourself” more and more though.

They use words like, you are worthy, you have value, know who you are, you matter, you are a spiritual creature, and lots of other things.

A Shaman friend of mine told me that being comes from doing. That’s opposite of what I believe, but maybe it’s that who you are is because of what you do.

So you ask, “What should I do, then?”

Ok, first go to a mirror and say I love you {your name}.

Then say it to yourself all day long. You might start to believe it!

Third thing to do is meditate. Well maybe just thinking…for a minute. You have time. Watch your thoughts, what you are thinking. It’s called becoming the Observer. Also watch your breath, how it goes in and out.

You become aware of yourself.

Next, make a video of yourself saying, “I love you.” over and over. Also just talk about how you feel, like angry, tired, and maybe even happy.

You can do it. It only takes a couple of minutes, and if you keep doing it you will be able to talk to yourself for longer and longer.

Then send the video to me. That changes everything, doesn’t it?

Well the first thing is to Love Yourself and then to Love Your Neighbor.

I am Your Neighbor!

Send it!

Talk to you again!

 

 

You Are Afraid of the Light!

Pretty Controversial!

I like to start off that way. And, that’s the way it comes to me!

So what am supposed to do, be afraid of the Light within me?

Ok, let me explain…

You are not afraid of the darkness. You live in it every day.

The darkness of what you think everyone else has done to you, how bad the world is, how bad You are.

You are very familiar with it.

You ARE afraid of the Light…the Light that is within you.

The Light that says you are an unlimited creature that is capable of anything you set your mind to. How many times have you heard that?

You’re afraid of what that means. Like I can do anything I want….Wow!

So why aren’t you? Simple question!

You’re afraid of being more than you are!

That includes a lot of things that you fear. Like people will notice you and call you out. You will have money, but have no idea what to do with it, except spend it.

What you don’t realize is that you will find Peace, Happiness, Your Dream…like everything you want!

So I suggest you start to become familiar, and begin to Love the Light within you!

I call it Loving Yourself! And Seeing the Light!

Nothing more to say…is there?

Consciousness and Loving Yourself

The more Conscious you are, the more you Love Yourself!

Yeah, that’s right!

Let’s get into it.

I am getting this from a talk I recently saw, but I’m going to put my own intuition into it.

Consciousness is me thinking about something, being aware of it. Duh!

But I am the conscious one, not the thing I am being aware of..I know, bad grammar.

So if I am aware of my hand, that doesn’t mean that it is aware of me! Now that’s a Wow!

In fact, I have no idea if it is, and I submit, that it isn’t. How can my hand be conscious of me?

You might say that everything is conscious. So what! What difference does it make…to You…if your hand is aware of you? I can’t know anything about That consciousness. My consciousness is all that matters!!!

Get it?

Now for the hard part.

So I am conscious of You, but I can’t know the consciousness of you? It’s the same as I can’t know the consciousness of my hand…

So you to me is the same as my hand to me. It doesn’t matter what my hand/you “thinks,” because I can never know it.

The same goes for you. You can never know what I am aware of.

So why are you so worried about it?

You say, I’m not worried about you, but, be honest, what do you think about all day long? You are thinking about the consciousness of other people.

As one armchair psychologist once said, “Stop it!” That was his advice for everything. Pretty funny but very true.

Just Stop it!

You can’t know what I am thinking about, or what I am aware of.

So what’s left? Could it be to focus on what you are conscious of? Like learning to Love Yourself!

You have plenty of time to do it now that you can’t know anything about what others are thinking.

What if you just thought about what You are thinking about…all the time?

Do you think there would be an improvement?

Do you think you would begin to sort out some things in your life?

Maybe you would begin to appreciate some good things about you.

Maybe you would change what you think about…like good things!

Do you think it would change your life?

I know you are thinking, “There’s got to be more than that.”

Nope, that’s it. If you only focus on you, and not judge what I am doing, you would not be offended by anything I do, cuz you don’t know why I am doing it.

And if you are “unoffendable,” then, soon, you will offend no one else.

Can you think of a life like that?

I can…and am working towards it.
