Love Yourself First

“The measure you give is the measure you shall receive.” Jesus

If you love yourself then you are loved.If the whole world loves you but you do not love yourself then you will not know love.If the whole world hates you but you love yourself then you will know love.

It does not matter whether or not God loves you or Jesus loves you or anybody loves you, if YOU do not love yourself then you will not be loved.If you love yourself then you will have the experience of love.

Do we want to love ourselves all the time?No, not really.We might think we want to be loved all the time, we might think we want to be accepted unconditionally no matter what we do, but the reality is we do not, for we use the idea of none acceptance to motivate ourselves to do something.And if we do not ‘do something’ then we will not even take care of ourselves, our bodies and our world.So this loving yourself will sometimes be conditional and sometimes it will be unconditional.

In order for our love to be perfect it must embrace the all, accept all reality.That means we must accept, enjoy and even love conditional love, which is part of the all.There is a time to accept and a time to not accept.There is a time to love and a time to hate.Without both there cannot be embracing of the all.
