Why We Need To Learn How To Fall In Love With Ourself

Why We Need To Learn How To Fall In Love With Ourselffeatured

“Don’t forgot to fall in love with yourself first.”

I think one of the best, most powerful, feeling to cultivate and experience as a human being is to be in love, but also to  the process of falling in love.

To be in love with every aspect of life, the good, the bad and the ugly. To be in love with your life, nature, food, your heath, your friendships, your lover(s).

Being in love is more than romance, it’s compassion. To be in love with your-self.  Compassion is the highest form of love there is which leads to self love.

First we must learn to fall in love with ourself before we can fully and openly give our-self to another person. We must learn to fall in love with the process of falling in love with everything and everyone around us. 

Love is vast. It’s huge. There is no one love. Love

My love for a tree takes a different form of love than love for myself. Even love for another human being takes on a different form of energy than love for myself.

Learn to fall in love with it all. This is yoga, this is union, this is what life is about.

The highest form of healing is through love. Let it hold you, let it melt into your body, let it kiss you softly, let it be gentle, kind, humble and patient.

Be in love with life. Fall in love with the process. Fall in love with every organic and unique aspect of your self. When you learn to love your self everything falls into place because you realize all you can give is love.
