Love and compassion are the answer to everything. As I was reading something I posted yesterday, it hit me smack in the face. This love and compassion that you desire to feel for others can only be complete when you have it for yourself.
Everything starts with you. When I did the beautiful process in my book Your Past is a Gift, I couldn’t UNDERSTAND how others behaved a certain way, until I saw it in myself. When you love with your whole heart, it’s because you feel good about yourself. You have LOVE for yourself.
On the other hand, when you feel anger towards others, it is because you are angry within yourself. If you are sad with the world, then this is a reflection of the sadness inside of you. This step is such an important step if you are to truly be free and let your spirit soar. You cannot love completely and unconditionally, until you have let go of all the things that don’t serve you.
Lets have a quick look at what doesn’t serve you
Firstly, BELIEVING that you are not worthy. Usually, this means that we are not worthy of someone’s love. Let’s say you grew up feeling that your mum didn’t love you or didn’t accept you for who you truly are.
Secondly, we don’t feel worthy, because somewhere inside, we BELIEVE that we aren’t good enough in some way. Not smart enough, not athletic enough, not beautiful enough, and the list can go on forever. Only YOU can know in which ways you are not enough. But it all comes down to the same thing: not good enough.
Lastly, when you BELIEVE that you aren’t worthy and that you aren’t good enough, you make a decision that you don’t deserve. When you make up your mind about all these things in your childhood, your entire life becomes a struggle.
