Excerpt About Self Love
To Know Yourself You Must Know Your BeingTo really know love, you must first of all know yourself. By yourself, I don't mean the "I"; I mean you must know your being, who you are separate from your label, from your name, from the feelings you have acquired throughout the years along with your self-image, and the other ideas you have about yourself. To know yourself is to know who you are beyond those feelings and ideas. Who you really are has nothing to do with what happened to you in the past, and who you are exists regardless of your feelings, thoughts and opinions about yourself and regardless of anyone else's opinion about you. You must first know this if you are to know love. When I talk about "knowing yourself," I mean to know your being, your Essence.
