Sometimes we think we have to take care of others to the point that we lose ourselves.
But that does not allow love to flourish… because love starts at home… and home is where the heart is… and the first heart we know is the one we feel beating in our chest… our temple… our spiritual home within.
To love, is to take care of ourselves too… not to the the exclusion of others… but to feel peace inside without shame, guilt, or anger so we can love freely.
To give love without love in our heart produces envy, confusion, and shame.
Thus if we clear away all negativity in our heart… we have nothing keeping us from spreading the light of love.
