your near future look like if you treated yourself the same way as you valued, helped and be good to someone you loved and valued? Can you keep the promises you make to yourself....reward yourself..
My very modest income is enough for me to treat others better than I have treated myself being I am primarily an environmentalist able to live of the land, for that cause I don't help others my future looks like I'll be one of the 5% of earth's man population to survive the next few years, some I help I don't expect to survive with me and some I do but that isn't the important thing, I do it because that is the way I am.
Elijah I came across a self care question and the context it was placed in made me see things differently. I tried to relay the essence of that question here of which I now realize I wasnt able to comprehend it fully in the way I tried to ask it.
Elijah I bet you are doing a lot of good. And I would like to say be tender, be nurturing to yourself when and where you can. Not easy depending on the surrounding culture you are exposed to. Why does one always have to be strong? Wouldnt it be a relief to lean/rest too? What I plan to do to show that I can value myself as another I do another is by modifying my impatience with myself. I have much patience for others but not for myself. If I can be tender here it will be demonstrating a healthy dose of self care.
Is there something you feel you could do to expand your nurturing self Elijah?
My dear Charmaine, environmental living is the rest the various scriptures speak of and has been all I have done since my August 6, 1976 new birth. The more one uses their body environmentally the more rested they become.
You would have to read my hubs and website, the building link on my profile connects you to, to find how I nurture myself. Mainly, every time human attempt to satisfy their sense perceptions by cooking their foods, adding to them doing what Monsanto does and the Chemical Trails (airborne Chemtrails) are we reduce the nurturing abilities of our air, food and water.
Have you ever been thirsty and drank as much "purified water" as your body could hold but were still thirsty? Have you ever considered why? Have you drank well water and just a little satisfied your thirst? Have you questioned why? The answers is; purified water removes the various life-types our bodies need so our thirst don't be fulfilled while ground water has them and takes but a fraction to do what purified water can't. That is another reason for not judging based on sense perceptions, we don't seek anything except the will to satisfy our judgments.
I think I have a puritanical streak within me that works against being generous, forgiving and understanding towards myself. I have guilt in valuing myself. No guilt when I value and love another. I think I am being greedy if I were to be tender in my approach to myself rather than to another. It sounds so out of place, doesnt it? I mean Im not talking about being all about "me, me, me". Just balancing the scales up. Do you falter here too? Or, are you practiced in this area? Right now, I have some personal planning to do. Planning will be the easier aspect to tackle. Its the action mode which will be challenging. But I am going to do it. What about you?
Being an environmentalist I don't value myself any more than I value another beings. When I cause pain to another I recognize it as karma as well as when something isn't exactly the way it could be with me.
While I was in the transition to who I have become all I could do was to think about me, me, me, my survival depended on it but in doing that it made me realize that is the way of all undomesticated beings of the earth. Believe me, it was a lesson well learned.
