They say – “Your task is not to seek for Love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”
We’re so busy waiting for someone to love us that we’ve forgotten about the one person we need to love first—it is YOU –Yes, you got it right, it is you and only you! Lord Krishna summed up, in his philosophy to progress eventually on the path of devotion towards our liberation that – Know the reality about yourself, who you are and what you are really. Know that you are neither your body nor your mind, but the true self that can neither be slain or hurt. It is eternal, divine and transcendental. Individuals have become so obsessed by one’s outer appearance, temperament that one fails to recognise and appreciate one’s inner spirit. Is beauty not the love for oneself that sparks through outer body? If one cannot love himself, is he even potent enough to love anyone else? Loving yourself is enjoying one’s own being and celebrating oneself despite of all the flaws that one may possess. The Almighty has invested so much of time in creating each of us distinctively, so is it not our responsibility to appreciate our self and develop our weaknesses in to our strengths throughout this journey called Life? They say that love is an ART. It indeed is! A – Accept yourself for what you are; R – Respect your own self; T – Trust in the magic that you possess! When you can see yourself as the soulful and divinely inspired person you are, the damaging internal dialogue doesn’t hold up. While the entire world judges you by your temperament, it is only you who judge yourself for the beliefs that you hold. Love only develops after making your own happiness a top priority. Loving yourself is the first and foremost type of loving selflessly. When at certain point of time you are devoid of nourishment of hope, it is only the love for your own self that has the power and magic to replenish it back. Start reminding yourself that – You may be perfect in your imperfections, wise in your foolishness, but YOU are special, You are unique and above all YOU are Your Own Self.
Keep Loving Yourself! Stay Happy, Stay Blessed! Keep Smiling because Life is Blissful!
