Do not look for Love. Calmly offer Love and let her return to you.

— Sean Dragon

There are three significant reasons why you should show in words and deeds that you love Your Self, every day.

1st: You deserve it. You deserve it because you are a unique creation of the God of Love. I want you to remember that. You are not a random incident, you are one of His gifts to the world, and you deserve to love but also to be loved. So, teach others how to do it.

2nd: You need it. You need it because of all that you've been through, for everything you've struggled for, for everything you've accomplished, for all the times you've failed, you've been broken, you cried, you've been hurt. You need it to retake control, to stand up on your feet again and continue. You need it to be able to manifest all the incredible potential that He has placed in you in order to offer His miracles to the world. We all need your miracles.

3rd: Is the way you will change the world. The change begins from within. The world gets better when we get better. The world will become happy when we become happy. The world will be Paradise again when we re-find the key to Paradise in us, and this key is Love.

That's why I ask you to remember to love your Self. Not your Ego, it's different. It is another thing to love your Self and another to be selfish.

When I truly love myself, I understand that I am as important as any other person, but I am not more important than anyone. I realize that I am an integral part of a beautiful Unity and not a lonely traveller. I know that I must be happy so that to be able to make other people and all the creatures around me happy. I understand that by offering Love to Myself, I offer Love to God, and just like every good father, the best Father of all wants His child to be loved, and His child is you.

I hope that the following thoughts will help you remember this Truth. Meditate on them and make them yours.

Source

1. I am not perfect, but from this awareness, all my miracles begin. None of those who changed the world was perfect.

2. Love is, first and foremost, a way of living. I choose to live with her rather than against her. I offer Love to the world starting with myself.

3. Remember that God does not bring to your life the people, the situations and the things you want. He brings people, situations and things you need.

4. When you feel sorrow because you think someone has forsaken you, remember that no one leaves you! It is just God, who clears your way from anything can delay you on your path to your Truth and Bliss.

5. As you grow up, it becomes more evident that --regardless of the effort of the material world to convince you of the contrary--, there is no problem in living a life that seems strange to many because it obeys to your Truth and is full of Love, while society serves the opposite. They will envy you not by malice, but because they would like to have the courage to choose their Truth and Love. They will envy you because they would want to be able to respect and love themselves.

6. Brutality, Selfishness and Ignorance are the three great generals of darkness. Show them the respect they deserve, in order to defeat them someday, but don't be their servant.

7. Whatever the present moment has brought to you, act as if you had chosen it, no matter how hard it may seem. Since the Universe sent it to you, it certainly has its purpose. It is better to work in collaboration with the Universe than against it.

8. There is the life we dream, the life we deserve and the life we will live. The purpose of our Spiritual struggle is to make these three become one.

9. Do not ever see the duty as a burden. Approach it as if it is an opportunity to express your spiritual understanding in order to make choices that will help you get more of it. Because spiritual understanding leads to happiness.

10. The beauty of a diamond is lost in the dark because then it can't reflect the Light. That's why you have to seek the Light within you and smile to reveal it to the world and reduce the darkness.

Source

11. When darkness embraces the world, then it is a moment the world needs your Light more.

12. Do you want to know what real happiness is? There is one way. Wherever you are, whatever you do, be Love.

13. Sometimes your joy is the cause of your smile, but in some hard times, your smile can become the cause of your joy.

14. You can face every moment either as if you are a victim or as if you are the hero of an adventure. Everything is a matter of choice.

15. Praying for the people who harmed you may not change them, but it will undoubtedly improve you.

16. Remember that without your own efforts, this World would have fewer chances.

17. Be compassionate, be kind and goodhearted and always give love. Love is the Wholeness; we are parts of it. Every new piece that re-joins to the Wholeness is filled with the happiness of the other pieces and adds to them its own.

18. I do not believe in age; I believe in Love that becomes bigger and clearer. I believe in the Revival and the Wisdom of experience.

Source

19. In the noise, you cannot hear the secrets the Universe whispers. The more you quiet internally, the more you will listen to His wise guidance.

20. Of the responsibilities we have, the greatest is to live happily. Nothing can make the world better than that, because the world is changing by happy people.

21. No matter how hard they try, they will not make me see enemies everywhere. Only blessings everywhere.

For the one who loves, time is a friend.

— Sean Dragon

Thanksgiving to Bill

About a year and a half ago, as I just had started swimming in this beautiful "ocean" of HP, Manatita told me "read Bill Holland's Hubs." It was one of the best advises ever! I am blessed to know you and read your writings, my brother Bill! For a strange reason, I felt so close to your Spirit from the first lines I read. I love the way you write, your talent to put the Light and the Kindness of your Heart on and behind your lines! I Love you, Bill, you are a treasure for me, and as I can see for many others! Thank you for the greatest lesson of all, how to be My Self!

Gratitude!

I wish you the best for your new book! I am looking forward to buying it!

      My sweet Li-Jen, I am so happy to know that you relish my tribute to Bill! Thank you for your kind words. I was sure that you would like most the one with the diamond because it resembles you. You are a diamond which is seeking the Inner Light to become sparkling for the world!

      My dear Sister, Dora, thank you for your words! They are honouring Bill, who has proven that deserve them, but also me, who I wish to be worthy of them. They are priceless words coming from you, a luminous and helpful Soul who is loved by many people including me. Thank you for offering the Light of your Heart to all of us!

      I call you sister and it isn't just a word!

      Hey Sean. Nice tribute to Bill! It's good to show others that you love yourself because you influence others to love themselves too. Each point is meaningful and I like the poetic sounding one about a diamond and Light. Thanks for sharing.

      Such lofty thoughts! Nobody deserves this exceptional offering more than Bill, and it comes from an equally insightful soul. It was also Manatita who pointed me to BillyBuc. All noble men.

      My dear brother, John, I am happy to know that you view my dedication to Bill as a wonderful work! Your opinion is always significant to me. Indeed, he is an inspiration and encouragement to us all in so many ways! But you also are an inspiration to me, and I thank you for your work. I have read some of your poems to my students, and they think the same for you! Therefore, for me, there is no bigger joy than to know that my words would be helpful for you. Thank you for your wishes about my books, I appreciate them.

      Gratitude for your poetic treasure!

      My beloved and precious friend, Linda, everything I write is de facto a tribute to Manatita because, in my eyes, he personifies Love and unconditional offer! Indeed they both are a reminder of the goodness in humanity and the need to selflessly give to others, and that's the reason I thank God every day for still sending people like them for helping us. I have offered previous works to Manatita (and I am preparing a book for him), and I thought that this hub is the least tribute I can offer to my brother Bill. My humble "thank you" to his golden Heart! What better than a piece of my Heart? Thank you for your Love. I treasure your friendship!

      With people like you and Bill, Heaven is a place on Earth!

      Very beautiful thoughts, Sean, my Bro.

      Every point that you stated here is a jewel and the most essential one that each one of us should practice for our betterment in this world. Thanks for this wonderful article.

      It is a worthy and beautiful dedication to our deserving brother Bill Holland who is so nice always showing the light to us.

      My Dear Sean, what a wonderful dedication to our brother Bill. He isn’t an inspiration and encouragement to us all, as are you. There are so many wonderful lessons here in your words that I will save and print this hub out so I have daily reminders.

      Good luck with the books you are working on, I am sure they will prove very popular. It is always a pleasure to read your writings.

      My friend I took your words into my heart today. I chose to be antagonistic with my wife and I chose to feel old. My choices. And so upon this rock it was my choice to be joyful that my wife and I care so much for each other. And that old is a state of mind and forever better than an alternative.

      This is the day that the Lord has made I shall choose to be joyous in it.

      A lovely, loving tribute to Bill, and by extension Manatita. Both of them have offered countless words of encouragement and love on these pages. They are a reminder of the goodness in humanity and the need to selflessly give to others.

      My dear Peggy, thank you for your beautiful comment and your support! I am much obliged! Yes, Manatita and Bill are teachers for me, teaching virtues in so many ways! But as you said, fortunately for us, there are so many wonderful people here on HP!

      Any action of kindness, like yours, is a powerful prayer!

      There truly are some wonderful people here on HP, and you have highlighted two of the best. Manatita and Bill are made of the same cloth. This is a wonderful article which I intend to share as well as keep to reread on occasion. Thank you for writing this!

      "Do not look for Love. Calmly offer Love and let her return to you."

      — Sean Dragon

      "Whatever the present moment has brought to you, act as if you had chosen it, no matter how hard it may seem."

      I had not heard choosing like that. Dang it all I do that. Maybe my choices are formed a little to my challenge seeking adrenaline junkie days. Nowadays it seems overcoming a separation from love is my choice.

      Bill was my first buddy here on HP. He let me interview him. I cannot find it. (2013?)

      My Brother!

      I believe there are some people brought into our lives for a reason. You are in my life as a reminder of the good in people, that there are loving,compassionate people who want nothing more than to share the light of love with others. Thank you for that....thank you for this....thank you for your love and friendship. I am deeply touched by this act of kindness.
