Do you love yourself?

Do you feel real affection for your true nature? Sometimes we underestimate the importance of a proper sense of love for ourselves. But Christ Jesus, when asked which was the most important commandment, speaks of two. First, "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart ...." Following this, he said: "Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these." Mark 12:30, 31; Loving ourselves carries the same weight as loving our neighbor.

How do we love ourselves? We do it rightly only as we consider ourselves to be 100 percent spiritual and acknowledge God, Spirit, as our originator. This radical position enables us to start right now seeing through the framework of mortality and accepting our inevitable perfection and immortality. Instead of belonging to the Adam-and-Eve category that classifies us as physical beings with human personalities, we exist in reality as indestructible ideas, forever pure and sinless, diseaseless and whole, ageless and beautiful.
