I finally asked myself

About the poem:

There is no short cut past self love. Without exquisite self-care, we have nothing to give others. This basic scientific fact eluded me my first 40+ years on the planet. Self love is the basis of all love, and must be the basis from which we make every step and every move, if we want to be a powerful, peaceful force of good in the lives of others.  Every day, I have to ask myself this question again to stay on track.

    • Yes, so interesting that most of us grow up thinking that it is somehow wrong to love ourselves first. Yet, so true that it is the path that solves so many serious problems. Just wonder why it took me so long to learn this. Well, I’m glad to hear that you learned it too! Thanks for the message!
