You’re too full of yourself,” my mother use to say to me whenever I felt a surge of empowerment, that amazing feeling of Wonder Woman strength combined with a Divine connectedness to Spirit…
How can we be TOO FULL of ourselves? What does this actually mean?
Is it selfish or selfless to love ourselves so much that we “feel” power-full beyond measure? Both of these actions go to the heart of Self-Love. Both are instruments needed to activate healing and transformation. How many times have you wanted something and didn’t consider the effects it would have on others? In 70 years, probably more times than I can count. But, the wisdom (activation of selflessness) that yields from the repetitive action of selfishness holds our greatest life-lessons. With selflessness, comes happiness and joy. When making someone else happy, making their heart light and giving them hope, reflects right back at you, that’s… Self-Love.
I just celebrated my 70th b’day and I consider, every day I am given going forward, a miracle. So, as ONE of God’s miracles, I declare today and evermore, I am going to strive to be the very best I can be. “We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. As we let our own light shine, we give others permission to do the same.”-Marianne Williamson. No matter how big or small, when we inspire, uplift and empower another “Child of God,” we are demonstrating the primary tenet of selflessness.
The degree to which we love others is how much we can love ourselves. So, do we need selfishness to teach us selflessness? Stay tuned…
