Who is the loving person? The loving person is the person who loves him or herself. I say this so often, and people say, Oh yes, you're so right, but they don't do it! You will never be able to love anyone else until you love yourself. Even With your Fat Thighs!
The essence of love is getting out of oneself and into others. When we care less about our feelings, our rights, our happiness, our security, etc., and begin to concern ourselves with the feelings, rights, happiness, and security of others, we will have found the true power of love.
Death is a challenge. It tells us not to waste time... It tells us to tell each other right now that we love each other.
