Love Thy Self

Updated on July 7, 2013

Mike's Common Sense

Jesus said," Love God with all your heart, and soul, and love thy neighbor, as thy self." With our world in such sad shape, it is obvious, that we all are feeling pretty crappy about ourselves.

Think about it, it should be natural to love yourself, you fight to stay alive everyday; but how many of us really do love ourselves, in the way that Jesus meant?

Everyone has some issues with them self. Let's face it, no one is perfect.

I believe our world is a high school of learning for soul, and that is why we are here, because we aren't perfect!

You will never be closer to God than you are right now.

MIKE'S LAW: YOU ARE AS CLOSE, OR AS FAR FROM GOD AS YOU CHOOSE TO BE, THE DISTANCE YOU FEEL FROM GOD IS IN DIRECT PROPORTION TO HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT YOURSELF.

We have all been taught to feel guilty whenever we screw up. This is a control factor taught by the religions.

Life is nothing more than one huge trial and error experiment. We learn by making mistakes.

By feeling guilty, or ashamed, the natural response is to try and hide from God because we feel unworthy, just as Adam and Eve did after the fall.

We create our own separation from God. To know God you have to let him see you. Of course, we never hide from God, but we shut him out. We need to learn to take responsibility for our actions, but to drop all of the guilt.

Accept yourself, and know inwardly that God does love you...more than you love yourself.

Now love thy self.
