The precept love others as you love yourself is universal. But what about the inverse? Why it’s important to love yourself as you love others.
Service at the highest level comes from taking care of your needs first. If you don’t fill yourself, you have nothing to give others.
“Your outer world reflects your inner world” is a simple principle. Yet it is also complex because it requires us to look within for the cause of what we experience.
The statement that time spent on appearance is lost time from work dismisses the value of self-care and reflects a misunderstanding of what the real work is.
We often feel that we can’t make time for rest until the work is done. But the work is never done, so we don’t rest. Here’s a way to get the self-care you need no matter how much is on your plate.
Our rational minds understand that worthiness is inherent in being. Unfortunately, our rational minds don’t run the show. We live and love by our rules.
Remembering this one fact about the heart reframed my entire approach to service and self-care.
