Taking More Gentle Care of Our Selves

Though we rarely get much support and encouragement for it in the so-called real world, taking the very best care of our selves is our first responsibility to all beings on this planet.

When we are being loving, tender, kind, gentle, forgiving and emotionally generous with our selves, we are filling our deepest selves with rich nourishment.

The more fully we nourish our selves, the more likely it is that we will have abundant, healthy energy with which to grow our selves; energy that we can then radiate and share with all the beings and creatures around us.

Finding time and ways to listen inward to our deep selves and learning to trust what we hear inside of us are at the beginning of this practice.

Talking lovingly to our selves, making time and safe space to be with all our feelings – happy, sad, grieving, confused, joyful, angry, rageful, goofy, bratty – are essential.

Treating our selves as lovingly as we would treat anyone else we truly cared about is the path.
