Daily Inspiration: October 19. Learning To Love Yourself More By Loving “Others”
We are all One, thus to understand how to love your whole-self fully, practice loving everyone you think about or interact with. If you feel like you lack self-love, it is usually because, somewhere in your life, you are withholding love from “others.” They in essence symbolize, the parts of yourself that you are withholding love from. If each and everyone “out there” is really a part of you, then if you are withholding love from any of them, you are withholding love from yourself. You are withholding love from them, because somewhere within, you have bought into the ego’s program, that you are not worthy of being fully loved. Symbols that show you that you are withholding love from others and thus from yourself, are feeling a sense of lack, separateness, loneliness, sadness, confusion, guilt, inner conflict and a lack of fulfillment. You cannot live unconsciously aligned with such energetic expressions, and still feel fully loving towards yourself. By not loving others, you think you are punishing them, when in fact, it is yourself who you are withholding that love from. Today, let us become conscious of what we are doing to ourselves. Today, let us practice no longer withholding love and its expressions, such as those of compassion, forgiveness and kindness, from others, so that we may begin to more fully and consistently, experience them ourselves. By doing so, a sense of Oneness, wholeness and fulfillment, will be experienced. When you make the conscious decision to offer others compassion instead of anger, forgiveness instead of judgment, understanding instead of resentment, and love instead of hate, you open yourself up to feeling God’s all-encompassing Love. Today, simply offer all others the love that you yourself would like to experience, do so and feel Love’s presence surround and embrace you, throughout your day.
The main reason that you would ever withhold God’s all-encompassing Love from yourself, is because you have forgotten that as God’s creation, you are forever worthy of His Love, and because we are all One, so to is everyone else. A sense of lack, separateness, loneliness, sadness, confusion, guilt, inner conflict and a lack of fulfillment, are all signs of self-doubt, of not truly knowing and loving your whole-self. Self-doubt is a symbol and a sign of a lack of self-love. Yet, do not despair, for self-doubt is not a real aspect of your eternal loving essence, it is simply a symbol, that you have temporarily forgotten, who you truly are. Today, let us not judge ourselves for being out of alignment with our eternal loving essence, instead, let us practice loving all those that are placed on our mental and physical path. By doing so, they help us heal and remember, how to once again fully love our whole-self. Today, imagine everyone “out there” that you are judging and condemning, as simply a part of you, that you are withholding love from. They represent, aspects of you, that are calling out for help and healing. Today, if you desire to feel God’s all-encompassing Love, Oneness, then forgive and stop withholding your love from others. Anytime you forgive another, you open the door to love, and thus to loving yourself more completely. When you offer any of the many expressions of love, such as those of forgiveness, compassion, peace, joy and understanding, you allow them to become a greater part of your experience. Today, thank your brothers and sisters for bringing you the opportunities to practice forgiving them, and by doing so, healing and loving yourself more completely.
Today, let us practice offering love and its expressions, in whatever ways and forms the moment is calling out for it. Sometimes the moment may be calling you to forgive, others times to offer hope, and still others times to bring joy to others, all these are simply opportunities being offered to you, so that you can learn, through the experience, to love whole-self more. The more we practice offering all of Love’s expressions, the more worthy of them we feel, the more grateful we are to ‘others,’ for being a part of a process, that is helping us recall, that our whole-self, every part of us, is worthy of love. The more love-filled we become, the more love we will have to share with others, the more love will fill our daily lives. As you begin to open yourself to offering Love’s expressions to more and more people, your circle of love and compassion will expand. Love will then become a more normal and natural, reflection and expression, of who in truth you are. The more you are offering and in conscious alignment with the love that in truth you are, you more natural it will feel to be surrounded, embraced, cared for, and at One with, God. The more at One you feel with God, the more you will want to reflect His Loving essence here on Earth. God’s Divine’s presence will now become your conscious and constant companion. The more you get to live in The Divine’s presence, the more grateful, kind, peaceful, forgiving, joyful and compassionate, you will become, and the more others will benefit from your company and example. As your circle of love and compassion expands, the more everyone and all are included in that circle, the more you will learn, how to love all those parts of yourself, that you once withheld love from.
Today, let us recall that we are all One, and so when the ego once again demands that you judge ‘another,’ view it instead as a call from the Universe, asking you to love a part of yourself, that you have been withholding love from. Today, when the ego demands you judge and condemn, take back control of your own mind, and instead make the conscious decision to Love them. When the ego says they need to be punished, love them by forgiving them. When the ego insist they are unworthy of your help, love them by offering them compassion and hope. When the ego says that you should be angry with them, choose to love them by overlooking their trespasses, and seeing only their eternal essence and nature as true. God is Love and All, thus all your brother or sister can in truth ever do, is to love you or forget to love you. When they forget to love you, remind them, by the loving way you react and treat them, that they too could only ever be, the love that God created them to be.
