Day 9 - Cultivating Self-Compasion

Your task is not to seek for Love, but merely to seek and 
find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it. 

- Rumi, thirteenth century Sufi poet

How can I give what I do not have?

Love others as you love yourself...  starts with the premise that you love yourself. 

For ... 
When I am critical with myself I am critical with others. 
When I am kind to myself I am kind to others. 
When I am gentle with myself I am gentle with others. 

It is not a sin, or arrogant, or selfish to love ones' self. 

It is simply the necessary first step to loving others.
