Wisdom from Michael Eisen

We need to make self-love a lifestyle, not just a practice! I truly believe that the root cause of the majority of the challenges and problems that we as humans face is a lack of self-love, self-worth and self-respect. This is the true epidemic that we face at this time in our evolution.

The funny thing is, though: we are all born with the natural ability to love, respect and value ourselves. It is not something we need to learn how to do as we grow up – for the most of us it is something we just need to remember. If you don’t believe me, go spend some time with a 2 year old. They will show you how easy it is to love and value ourselves.

For me, one of my greatest teachers is my niece Willow, who is almost 3 years old now. She has no issue at all with saying “I love you” to herself in the mirror or blowing herself kisses.

So true. I believe the people who hate other people are only projecting the hate they have for themselves onto others. It stands to reason that if you don't love other human beings then you don't love yourself because you are afterall, a human being. This doesn't mean that you don't believe in God.

BLAH BLAH BLAH. The one we most lack is the love of Christ in our life. Wisdom comes from Him and Him alone. Not self or other people.
