Love the self, then love others

There is no greater glory than to find the internal switch that elicits tears. May they be tears of joy, tears of sadness, tears of rage, they are a sign of the life force in each of us. It is the lack of showing emotion that separates us from understanding how imperative embracing all feelings is. Once we transcend beyond the things we do not want to acknowledge, we can truly believe the next step of this journey we call life is assured to be steeped in understanding the healing power of love. It is the one emotion we are most afraid of, because it is the only one we cannot explain or control. The most important love affair you will ever have, is the one with the reflection you see in the mirror. It is from that beginning that all else will flow and the vortex we are caught in will spin itself out of existence.
