|THEME OF THE MONTH: Love Yourself
|Quote of the Month:
“You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more
deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is
not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire
universe, deserve your love and affection.” -Buddha
|To be human is to be selfish. Every single human has an ego and, therefore, it is
impossible to operate in a selfless way. Every action we take, whether noble or not,
cannot be taken without the ego. The word ‘selfish’ conjures all kinds of negative
associations with hurtful actions that overlook or ignore others’ feelings, needs, and
input. However, the only way to be truly authentic is to recognize that, due to our
having an ego, every action we take has some sort of self-interest, even if it is being
identified as someone who is righteous. The dysfunction usually occurs when the Ego is
master over the Heart, rather than the other way around. Our inability to properly
love ourselves comes from a rejection of self or over-identification with the external
world. Too often, we measure our self-worth with financial, career, or relationship
success. This month, take on a self-love practice once a day and see your relationship
to your self-worth dramatically change.
