“You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection.”
We live in challenging times. Perhaps the challenges are greater for some than for others; or so it might seem , but the challenges are there, no matter who we are.
As the pace of life intensifies and the demands and challenges that we all face rush towards us like waves on a beach, the words of the Buddha are more relevant than ever.
But how do we do it? How do I show love and affection for myself? I suppose there are many answers that could be given to the question; What are the most important things in my life?
“No matter what is going on in the world or in my own life, it is up to me to stay true to a place of calm and assurance within myself so that my mind and body have a “refuge” upon which they can rely .”
