Just how do you show love?

Hi just out of curiosity, I wanted to hear feedback from the people of this board how you show unconditional love to yourself.

Now the reason why I ask this is lately I've been in a weird noisy state and I tell myself to forgive and love, forgive and love but I stay stumped as to how I can do this. All along it's been great to intellectualise about self-love, Oneness and all that, but in my true experience, I think my Life has very little example of love....

I mean I give on a daily basis everyday and occassionally I have a good, welling up feeling that I can consider as love, but the occassions are getting fewer. In fact, I'm feeling a bit frustrated at all the negative energy around me.

Are there any real-practical day-to-day means of bringing love into one's Life and hence fulfilling a sense of self-love?

Well I think the key is loving yourself first. It all starts and ends inside of you and nowhere else. If you don't completely or unconditionally love yourself then loving others in this way is not possible. You don't bring love into your life. You become it. Then it flows to you in ways you may never imagine.

It's that simple yet that hard as we are indeed bombarded with negativity all the time. When it all clicked for me I realized just how simple it is. You can't force or fake any of this. Let it happen. You are driven by an infinite intelligence that perfect in every conceivable way. Know and trust in this and you'll be on your way to the kind of peace that only complete self awareness can bring.

Peace and love,

John

It seems that "Love" can be elusive at times. We know it's there and we can certainly feel it too; but accessing this emotion or energy can be difficult. When I was growing up I saw very little evidence of Love, either towards myself or between my parents. I had a real distorted idea of what Love was, but I knew there had to be something more, that felt better than what I had been shown. Love is something that I have had to meditate to achieve and really feel. It was something attainable, but only if I chose it. I've found that random acts of kindness help me to increase this feeling, that understanding someone elses pain in this world rather than having them understand mine and by simple and not so simple acts of forgiveness of self and others. When I do these things I tend to feel connected to something bigger than self, is that Love? Sure feels good.
