This month, we are exploring Love. Every person on the planet responds to honest, true love. It’s nurturing, comforting, healing and transformative. The energy of Love opens our hearts and allows deeper relationships.
Think of the people you love: your spouse/partner, children/grandchildren, parents, siblings, and friends are probably there. And what about you? Are you on that list? We aren’t really taught that loving ourselves is important and consequently,our love is often focused toward others.
But a natural part of our maturity is learning to love and appreciate ourselves. Do you know how to deeply love yourself? Are you clear about what makes you happy, what kind of life you deserve? Do you honour yourself and treat yourself with respect? Do you treat yourself as if you are the beloved for whom you have been waiting for?
We owe it to ourselves to know the answers to these questions. But if you aren’t sure, relax and breathe…because it’s not too late. Now is the perfect time to give yourself the gift of finding out. I am always amazed at how much is revealed to us in an atmosphere of genuine curiosity and interest.
As Valentine’s Day approaches, please include yourself in your expressions of love. Let’s remember Buddha’s affirmation that, “You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.”
