The Choice♥️
A few minutes ago, I posted a reflection about self care. After posting, I listened to this story and realized that it was, in part, about that which I had just written and posted. The importance of loving and caring for yourself. The field of love widens and grows, encompassing all. 🙏🏻Namaste🙏🏻

I Am Learning...
...to open the door. Kathy reflected on this story the other day. I am so glad I took heed and listened to it. It’s a lovely, simple story of choice and self love, with an unexpected twist at the end. Stories like this help me continue to learn how to open the door🚪 to love and compassion for my self.

Open the Door
Nitima tells us a beautiful story on a situation where one monk must make a impossible decision. It is a great reminder that we must hold and value ourselves as we hold and value others. Why is it that we can hold different values for ourselves? We are never going to be perfect. The sooner we realize that, the better off we will be. We need to forgive ourselves as we have forgave others. If we haven’t done so already, we must learn to open the door and welcome ourselves to our heart! After all, we know and have known ourselves more than anyone else our entire life!

Self
I must pay better attention to my own worth and love. It is too easy to sacrifice oneself as it’s what you do as a mother, wife, employee. But who are we to others if we don’t love ourselves. I must practice this more.

Self love and compassion
Initially I thought this story was to teach me that I need to be more compassionate to others before myself, to always love others or think of others and be content with sacrificing myself, my own beliefs (and I was ready to accept that). But it surprised me when it said I must equally love myself just as much as I love others. Even my enemies. It taught me that sacrificing myself may just be the same as sacrificing my friends, loved ones, the sick, the old, the useless, the enemy. We are to love all the same, even ourselves.

Love yourself
I loved this story; sometimes I forget to love myself as much as I love others, but to give the best of you, first you have to recognize that you are great and hay you have a lot of love to give... give it to you too.
