Self-esteem

Self-Love As Spiritual Practice = More Love & Healing for The World

What if loving yourself first and foremost is NOT selfish?

What if the ONLY way in which you can truly love others is by loving yourself first?

I know this sounds counter to what many of us were taught. We've learned that it's selfish to put ourselves first, especially when you're a parent.

Many of us in the western world were raised hearing this Christian maxim:

Love thy neighbor as thyself. 

Thoughts on Worthiness

Lately I've been chewing on the idea that everything in our lives flows from our deepest self-worth. But what exactly is self-worth? Where do we get our self-worth from? And what undermines our worthiness?

I bring this today because it might be an invaluable exercise for you to look at what areas of your life are presenting challenges, and get curious about whether deep down there might be some unworthiness at the heart of the problem.
