However, what I’m talking about goes beyond simple pleasantries. Yes, it’s importamt to do those things, not everybody does even just the smallest acts of kindness. But again, that is just a symptom. Do we really know ourselves, what makes us happy....am I really being selfish, by recognizing that the first person who has to be cared for....is the self? Yes we can exchange pleasantries, but without the energy behind it...it’s just seems mundane.

It’s better than being rude, I agree. But, is it just living, and what’s the difference between just living and being alive?

To have relationships with others, it seems normal to go through each day, exchanging humdrum pleasantries....while inside, we are suffering, wanting more in life.

I’m seeking self love....and self worth...that each interaction I have, isn’t always an exchange of pleasantries and niceties. I’m looking for true self love, that says and feels I am right with myself and with God, and the world I general....regardless of the circumstances and outcome.

I know it won’t be perfect, and I know life is up and down...Im not looking for the extremes, good, bad, right, wrong, ....I’m looking for the balance, contentment, and true self worth.

I want to be that person, that you can sit next to....silently, and feel that kind of spirituality.

I don’t mean take care of ourselves as....Got to have the best clothes, house, car.....the biggest steak, while everyone else is eating hotdogs, or being the first in line. Those are humanly ideas of taking care of yourself first, I’m talking spiritual self.

Colorado, whilst you seek who you are, and I understand what you are saying, I am also saying that the greatest love you are and can be whilst incarnated is what we allow to naturally outpour to ourselves and to those around us. To the world around us.

Pleasantries are not mundane or trite, even if necessary. They are one of the purest expressions of agape for the stranger and for all those we touch. The outpouring of authentic love for self and others. And whilst we discover who we are, we can continue to engage with others and be and do the authentic love we are.

To be honest, presence is nice, and there are those whose presence moves us. But in nearly all cases, it moves us when they invite us in, as in giving a talk. Or most of all, for many, when they speak to us or bless us or embrace us personally. Your presence or my presence is a powerful thing, but its effect is always most powerfully experienced person-to-person. Not only sitting next to someone but particularly when speaking to them personally, smiling, helping, and generally being with them with intention.

If we are seeking to have a deeper connection with others and with the world around us, and that is what I am getting from your words, then you are right to seek to deepen your connection with yourself. But to connect with others deeply, you then will need to engage with others more personally and more transparently, more authentically. With more authentic love manifested. And so we are back to the kindnesses and the courtesies, but offered now from a deeper connection with your centre.

Peace & blessings

Wow, Colorado, this was beautiful. I almost cried.
Recently I've just been pulled towards sources with the same message-
'Love yourself.'

I can vaguely remember it started last year when I met someone who might have been my twin soul, but I can't say for sure.
In summary, I was telling him how I beat myself up constantly and trying to learn how to treat myself better, so he told me that when people beat themselves down it makes him sad, so he told me the importance of self-compassion and even sent me Youtube link about it.
Look up Duke University Professor Explains "Self-Compassion" on Youtube if you want to watch it.
It's less than 3 minutes long.

Then gave me he gave me a PDF book called Awakenings from the Light: 12 Life Lessons from a Near Death Experience by Nancy Rynes.
I haven't finished it because I'm going through the dark night of the soul and my energy gets easily drained, even from reading!
But the few chapters I read were worth something to think about.
Love was a very important theme; love for oneself and others.

I even came across a song that was described perfectly what I was going through regarding a one-sided crush.
The last lyrics was perfect.
"So once again, I'll walk on alone.
Just the thought for once maybe I could be with somebody else.
Maybe love yourself, before someone else, is what it really means,
To be alive."


Your talk with God really hit something in me.
When you say like energy attracts like energy, so true!
I even experimented with being truly happy for a few days and it attracted really nice people! But I am still learning how to love myself so I am sincere in my feelings and self forever...

This process that I am going through currently...
I can't even describe it; how it affects something deep inside me, in my soul...
This feeling is like having something I can't physically grasp or even see, but it's there! I can feel it. Like digging for the truth...

This morning, I woke up feeling like something was missing inside me.
I felt like groaning and wanting to hug so badly.
Wanting to feel a warm love form someone who loved me back, but I don't have that someone.
This happens to me sometimes I never really knew how to satisfy it, but it would go away from time to time.
Anyways, this morning, however, I told myself in my mind that I am pretty, loved, smart, good enough, and just complimented myself while hugging myself and I felt better!

Love is truly important. Especially for oneself.
I have been on an incredibly hard journey too much for words, but I do want to say that I mentioned a one-sided love earlier. Well, that guy told me the most important person you have to take care of is yourself first.

Yes, it's so important, I need to learn to love myself, take care of myself...
Again, the same message...

Either in 2015 or 2016, during the dark night of the soul, I had this strong feeling as if I knew I was reborn; I looked at everything around me and even my own self and cried because it was just so beautiful.
I cried at the thought of creation, of being created, that anything exists!
I cried in shame thinking that I have this body and soul, but I don't know how to live right, I don't know how to treat it right.
I also felt that this might be my last life and I wanted to be free of all the hate and anger inside me and be at peace.
I'm only 23 years old, but I feel like I need to change myself and learn how to love like Jesus had loved us.
I need to be at peace because if I died, I don't want to die with great animosity inside me.

I prayed to God to help me because I feel so much darkness inside me...
If you lived in darkness for so long, it's all you ever known...
So when light, in all it's shinging glory, comes your way, it hurts!
You're blinded and need to close your eyes and run away!
It takes time to adjust to the light...
I think that's what's happening to me. God is helping me to adjust to the light. To put away my old life in sin and live anew in Christ.

But again, the light is so harsh....I need time to adjust.

You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.
Ephesians 4:22-24 (NIV)

Beautiful

You mentioned a human understanding Why

A simple question or two if I may? Do you find that an unmeasurable age of the energy of all is now for your insight ? what was the first emotion bestowed ? can words give justice to how you feel now ? Also is your truth known in its givings or did you allow yourself to continue to give forth your truth unwavering by His Glory ?

Also were you shown what is a vast truth of an essence within the gestures of emotion What I wish for you is what is it to you to be given a choice to dwell within the continual growth upon a grand truth of a creation untold better yet were you given a choice

WHEN TIME IS GIVEN ONE MUST CONTINUE SPEAKING FORTH TO BE FORTHMORE IN DIRECT CORRESPONDENCE TO YOUR FAITH YOU HONOUR THE GRAND TRUTH TRY TO AVOID QUESTIONS IT IS TO UNDERSTAND WHY A QUESTION IS FIRST


iT IS TO GIVE MY TRAVELS MY HONOUR FOR I SHALL PARTAKE IN A GRAND QUESTION
