Forgive the past. It is over. Learn from it and let go. People are constantly changing and growing.
Do not cling to a limited, disconnected, negative image of a person in the past. See that person now. Your relationship is always alive and changing.
— Brian L. Weiss (via hellanne)
Let everything happen to you.
Beauty and terror.
Just keep going.
No feeling is final.
— Rainer Maria Rilke (via revolvver)
Self-love is the foundation of our loving practice. Without it our efforts to love fail. Giving ourselves love we provide our inner being with the opportunity to have the unconditional love we may have always longed to receive from someone else. We can give ourselves the unconditional love that is the grounding for sustained acceptance and affirmation. When we give this precious gift to ourselves, we are able to reach out to others from a place of fulfillment and not from a place of lack.
