Today I received email from a spiritual friend, call for help, there are two spiritual teachers, after life long giving to others, eventually reach a point that need help.....
The concept of giving, in every religion and spiritual teaching, every culture encourage selfless giving, That's very good. women like me who have experience of love too much, this idea especially appeals to us. In fact, we were hypnotized by this idea.
Love is not sacrifice, in order to give, one must have themselves, how can one give something before one have. sacrifice is a drama as I understand now. Be self sufficient, then giving & sharing can be true joy.
Love your neighbor as yourself, How can you love your neighbor correctly of you don't love yourself. love yourself and radiant joyful energy, your neighbor will automatically happy when surround you. radiant vibration of fullfillment, you will help the earth to heal...

Yes, you really do have to learn to love yourself before you can really love others. I learned this when I had my daughter. I had this warps fantasy that I could just live through her. But when I was not happy and was not loving myself neither was she and it made "living through her" impossible. After I joined a group I started slowly learning how true this was. We now have such a great relationship because I love me and I love her and she loves her and she loves me. It is awesome! Be Blessed, ~Dawn~

Well said Cher . . .
When the melancholic dejectedly desires to be rid of life, of himself, is this not because he will not learn earnestly and rigorously to love himself? When a man surrenders himself to despair because the world or some person has left him faithlessly betrayed, what then is his fault except that he does not love himself the right way. Soren Kierkegaard in Works of Love
