POEMS: “Do you love yourself?”

from an older post

They say that practice makes perfect…

and you’ve always been smart,

but you’ve got hating yourself,

right down to an art.

It’s not just a step,

in your morning routine

to glance in the mirror

and not like what you’ve seen.

The voice in your head lies,

but it won’t let you know,

you gave up on ignoring it,

along time ago.

Flowers in a vase,

keep guard by your bed,

yet you still see their beauty,

though their petals are dead.

If they were a person,

they’d have themselves too,

but they would always be loved

by someone like you.

Although your petals are wilted,

and you think no-one knows,

you are only counting your thorns,

while the world sees your rose.

    What, if we love God first, then automatically we love all, including ourselves…

    Have a great evening my friend 🙂

    1. Absolutely dear Didi, you are so right!
      From God Source everything has its life.Always our priority is to love God above all.
      It’s just that sometimes we forget that we are also a part of God, and we can be very hard on ourselves…so we also need to realize that Oneness, that we are not separate, and feel unfolded by that infinite love.
      I always appreciate your wisdom that makes us think of the bigger picture dear friend.
      Sending best wishes to you as well, in gratitude and Oneness, Amira ❤ 🙂

      1. Thank you very much, dear Amira
        Our world is like a jungle in which we easily lose our orientation. Many times it happens that we mix things because we do not recognize the difference from what is what as we are in the clutches of our mind. The more we focus our attention just on one thing at a time, the more we can make us of it and get a deeper understanding as our attention is completely absorbed then on one thing and not scattered here and there. This is indeed a dilemma in which we often find us confused and mislead. It is similar when having a garden hose with many holes in it – at the end only a bit water comes where we want to have the water, but when the garden hose is without any holes then the full water can reach its destination.

        Thank you so much, my friend – I always appreciate your comments 🙂

        1. I like very much the image you used about the hose with the many holes, where our attention is all over the place, and we lose the focus and strength of the single spurt of water…
          Words of wisdom dear Didi, for us to ponder!
          Thank you dear friend 🙂
          In gratitude, Amira ❤

            This image I told to you came from Sant Kirpal Singh’s lips – when listening every weekend to a spiritual lecture hold by Sant Kirpal Singh and Dr. Harbhajan Singh – so the credit goes to them 🙂
            In fact our attention is scattered and busy with thousand of things but we need to concentrate this power on one thing at a time this will bring us much deeper and will help to water inner fields.

            Greetings from my heart to yours
            Didi

  3. It’s a great lesson and something we can remember with this image in our minds, to remain focused… Even though it sounds simple, it is not easy to rise our consciousness above this plane of duality…
