"The most important thing that we're saying to you is this self love that you
think you're looking for is not love of self, it's love that IS Self. And
there's a difference. There's a difference between loving me and being me who
loves. And it's being me who loves that is really you." Caribbean Well Being
Cruise, 4/1/06

******************************************

Abe - It doesn't matter what the focal point of your love is as long as the love that you're feeling is the love that really is you, you see.

Guest - I can flow love that way.  Are you saying that when I'm flowing love like that, randomly to anything and everything, that that IS who I am?

Abe - Yes, that IS who you are. (Ahhhhhh from audience)

Guest - Ahhh, so great.

Abe - That IS who you are. (Audience cheering, applause) And, the more you do it deliberately and acknowledge, 'That IS who I am,' then the more you demand it of yourself, and demand is too strong of a word, but the more you set your intention to find that and the more you look for it everywhere you go.  And the more you look for it, the more you find it, and the more you find it, the more you look for it until soon you just become it.  And then you become this stable being who is never off your balance...who, if someone looks at you and doesn't find appreciation as they are looking, you understand it hasn't anything to do with you.  It never had anything to do with you.  Everything that has everything to do with you you are in control of, you see.

Guest - Why is it so hard for me and others to look at our own human self and not feel that same ripple of appreciation and love?

Abe - Because you're looking for love to be focused AT you rather than love to be focused through you.

Guest - But I want to focus it at myself.  I know what you mean about third parties.  Ive been down that rabbit hole, but I'm talking about focusing it on myself.

Abe - But what we're saying to you, and we want you to love you like we love you.  But in the meantime, what difference does it make what the object of your attention is when you are feeling love?  And, the thing that is apparent, and we appreciate you saying it, and everyone feels it to some extent also, is that in your awareness of NOT loving self, you can't find self love.  And so we're just trying to build a bridge for you.  In other words, any time somebody hurts your feelings, it is because you're in a different vibration than who you really are.  And so, this quest for self love we think IS down the rabbit hole.  We wouldn't be looking for self love.  We'd be looking for the part of self that does love.  Rather than saying to someone that we love, 'I want you to love me,' we would begin training ourselves into a desire that says, 'I love loving you.  I love the feeling of loving you, and how you feel about me is irrelevant.  I love the
feeling of loving you.'

  • When you feel good about you
    you are vibrating positive energy
    when you vibrate positive energy
    you are positively attracting.

    If you are wanting all of those things
    to come to you
    which includes
    the mate you have been wanting
    the money you have been wanting
    the work that is more satisfying
    and more fulfilling
    the new house that you are wanting
    the car that you are wanting
    all of those things of a physical
    or non-physical nature
    that you have been wanting
    the re-claiming of your perfect bodily health
    that you are wanting.

    If you are wanting ANY of those things
    that you are identifying as your desire
    to come into your experience
    it is absolutely imperative
    that you come to a place of positive vibration.
    which means
    YOU MUST ADORE YOU

    If you do not like yourself
    then you can want
    until you are blue in the face
    and those things that you want
    cannot come into your experience

    ...this quest for self love we think IS down the rabbit hole.  We wouldn't be looking for self love.  We'd be looking for the part of self that does love.

  • Self Appreciation

    If you're not getting along with your mate.

    Your not getting along with your employer .

    Your own physical body is sick.

    You don't have enough money.

    People are not treating you right.

    There is not one negative thing that you are experiencing that is
    happening for any other reason other than you are not appreciating
    yourself.

    When you are critical of somebody else its not about them. It's about
    you.

    When you are condemning the world whether it is the political world or the religious world or the economic world or the ecological world... When you are looking at the flaws in the world ,it is not about the world it is about you! It is about the way you feel about you.

    And so we say friends , nothing is more important than that you establish your own relationship with you. It our promise to you that your Inner Being adores you but you close the door when you think thoughts of lack about yourself.

    The faith in me is my key to success, and for that alone, I love who I am.

     that's an exceptionally poignant sentiment there, thanks to you as well! i love how that feels!

     

  • hmmm, I just realized that DS had already posted this one some time ago. I guess I'll just leave the duplicate for now.

    xoxo

    • wonderful quote, one of my saving graces that i carry with me always in my heart :) duplicating...savoring..makes no difference really.

    • (((((((((((DS)))))))))))))  [those are huggies of appreciation to you,  for being such a nice abe buddy]

  • Self-acceptance
     
     
    Abe:
     
    We are wanting to help you find a way of accepting once and for all the perfection of who you are, and we want so much for you to find this place where you really are so sure of who you are that anyone else's opinion of who you are does not matter at all.

    In other words, we want you to be able to... mess something up altogether or blow an exam or crash your car or do any other number of things [to which] much of the world would say, "Well, that was certainly an inappropriate thing for you to do," and we want you to be able to stand proudly and say, "Hey, I did that and it doesn't have any relationship to who I am." In other words, "Who I am is Source energy physically embodied. Who I am is pure positive energy out here on the leading edge.... Who I am is an eternal seeker of alignment with who I am. But I'm not going to let any outside standards or judgments confuse me about who I am," and we feel that's what is at the basis of all of this for you. When you let somebody in really close where they might really know [you], then you start worrying about what they really think, and we want all of you to reach the place where it just doesn't matter to you so much what anybody else thinks -– it only matters to you how you feel. And when you reach that place then you attract those people that agree with that.

    Does that make some sense to you?

    We do not believe that anyone could sit in a room like this... and hear someone like Abraham, who knows the perfection of who you are, telling you how good you are, how wonderful you are, how really right you are, how really expansive and ever-changing you are, and we don't think that any of you could get it even close to the way we know it and mean it. What we hope to do is to incite within you a desire to train yourself into that dominant thought. We want you to train yourself into self-appreciation. And you just do it one little thought at a time.

    Want to talk some more?

    Guest: No -– that's perfect.

    Abe: One little thought at a time. We want your mistakes -– whatever they may be -– to strike you as humorous. [When it comes to] your opinion of yourself, no matter what, we want you to look for redeeming features. We no longer want the insecure masses who have surrounded you, who have used your errors as their justification for feeling better, who have convinced you that you are unworthy and inappropriate and flawed in this way and this way and this way as you don't measure up to who knows what standards -– we want you to just stand and sort of shake yourself off and begin saying, "I really don't give a rip what any of you are thinking because none of you have concentrated upon me fairly. None of you have really known -- none of you know who I am, none of you know how I am from Source, none of you have walked in my shoes. Nobody knows. Nobody knows. I have accepted this feeling of unappreciation unfairly and I've practiced it, and I'm no longer gonna do it."

    (lol. how's that as a topic to point at and get mad from unworthiness, think it might evidence a shift? oh...easy path up...then blame society and hold visions of the future with pessimism that society will ever be little more than something to pivot from...let hope sneak up and catch you on it's own...the vortex can take a person from there)
