"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
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.'
