4. SELF-LOVE, SELF-ACCEPTANCE. YOU ARE THE NUMBER ONE

Prentice Mulford

Undoubtedly to some, the idea of giving so much love to self will seem very cold, hard and unmerciful. Still this matter may be seen in a different light, when we find that ‘looking out for Number One,’ as directed by the Infinite, is really looking out for Number Two and is indeed the only way to permanently benefit Number Two.

(Rhonda Byrne, 2006.)

Unless you fill yourself up with love first, you won’t have anything to give anybody.

Wolfgang Amadeusz Mozart

Neither a lofty degree of intelligence nor imagination nor both together go to the making of genius. Love, love, love, that is the soul of genius.

(Robert Holden, 2005.)

Before you devote your life to
A person, a marriage, a family,
A company, a political party,
A peacemaking campaign,
A religion, a revolution,
A spiritual path,
Make a different declaration:
First, give yourself to love.
Make a resolution that love will be your
Purpose, your aim and the essence of your being.
Then, let this Love
Inspire you,
Support you and lead you
In each matter
That you’ll devote yourself to.
