Trying to love yourself is to miss the point. It starts with the assumption that love is not yet here. In the absence of trying, one can discover that it’s already done.
In this recognition, you simply allow love to flow freely. As it flows, this is the gift you share and receive. As you share love, you experience love.
This is loving yourself, it is allowing love to flow. It literally has nothing to do with loving who you think you are, and has everything to do with seeing the love that’s already here.
