Divine Love – Part III

I believe the most important person you can love is yourself.  Without this self-love there is no possible way you can be truly open and loving to another.  Now I do not mean to imply that we should be arrogant and self absorbed.  Those characteristics typically mask self-esteem issues. That is one end of the spectrum.  The other end is self hate where we allow destructive behaviors to consume our lives because we don’t feel worthy of being loved by anybody.  Dear reader, if you are dealing with either of these two extremes I urge you to seek professional counseling.  What I am referring to are the day-to-day negative statements we say about ourselves that keep creating the problems in our lives.  Listen to yourself.  It’s too bad we don’t have self recordings so we can hear what we say to others about ourselves or what we say to ourselves in the privacy of our own minds.  We criticize ourselves for being too fat, for being too slow, for being too dumb, for being too short, for being clumsy, for not having the right words to say, for not having enough money, for not having a degree, for not knowing how to dress well, for driving an old clunker, for living in a messy house, for having big ears, or a big nose, or big feet, or….. do I need to go on??  For some of us it’s amazing we can get out of bed in the morning because we are SO DARN IMPERFECT!  

Well, I have news for you.  You Are Perfect!  God created you in his image so, therefore, you ARE Perfect!  The only one you need to convince of that is YOU!  You may have friends or family that may be trying to tell you that but you just can’t hear them, because the noise in your head is telling you otherwise.  Friend, the noise in your head is lying to you.

I hope you realize that you are so very worthy of love.  And on this day of the heart I hope you enjoy the following.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y5ZacH2LaIE
