Why should You Love Yourself?

Ya, really, why?

Simple, what’s the alternative…Hate yourself!

I submit you already do that. Your mind send 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 them 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.

So this 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, 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!

 

 

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 me…if my hand is aware of me? 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 to focus on You? 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.

Neither Do I Condemn You…Go and Sin No More!

I have read this Scripture many times and others like it. Jesus said many times, “Go and Sin No More!”

But let us start with some background for those of you who haven’t read the Bible 30 plus times…like me..

Not only that…but have “studied” it…like thought about it…asking what does this mean?

Well, I got some intuition about it.

The part I am talking about was when a women was caught in adultery, and the religious leaders were about to stone her…like kill her…by throwing stones at her…

As the Law said!

What a way to die…and whoever devised that punishment is…what…insane!

But anyway, the religious leaders asked Jesus what they should do.

He bent down, starting writing in the dirt and said,

“Let him who is without sin, Throw the First Stone!

He continued writing in the dirt….wonder what he was writing?

Maybe all their sins….who knows…doesn’t say…but…

One by one they leave, because they feel guilty.

Finally there are only Jesus and the “guilty” women.

He says to her “Who is left to condemn you?

She says, “NO one!”

He then says,”Neither do I…

Go and Sin NO More!”

What does this all mean?

First of all we condemn ourselves…

Second, God does not condemn us…

So in his Eyes we are Not Guilty!!!

Think about that..WE are Not Guilty!

Love Yourself!

Third we are supposed to “Go and Sin No More!!!”

That means we can live a “Sinless Life!!!”

Wow…how does that work?

I think it has to do with the Big Picture.

It’s like it all works out…and we should live as if IT does…

Then we really don’t live under condemnation and guilt.

That’s the part that matters.

It goes back to the “Love Yourself then Love Your Neighbor” post I wrote a while back…

So if you want to change your perspective on guilt and fear,

and learn How To Love Yourself on Your Journey to Finding Your Dream…
