Do you ever experience sadness? regret? envy? resentment? longing?

If you do, do you resist it, pushing it away and attempting to replace it with some other feeling?

Do you set it loose and allow it to wreak havoc upon your Life until it loses momentum?

Or do you embrace it, simply allowing it to Be, holding it close to one's heart as a dearly Beloved Friend, staying fully present with it until it's stopped its squalling and nestled back into your Essence as a welcomed part of your whole?

Which approach is more Self-Loving?

Which sets the better example for how we should treat one another?

Kindness to Self makes one a kinder person.
Kinder people contribute to a kinder Reality,
and create a more caring World.

Don't we therefore have a responsibility to the World to treat ourselves (including our emotions and perceptions) with Loving Kindness, first and foremost?

    Hi Suzanne. Kindness and love to myself is very important. In fact the old adage of "Love one another as we love ourselves" would seem to be primary.

It took me a long while to learn how to reparent my hurting inner child. But we are
the best of friends these days. She trusts me and I am gentle with her. She is such a fragile being as all our inner children are.

Kindness is one of the most beautiful things I know.

Another ancient saying "Love covers a multitude of sins".

Thank you for your blog.
