Great words…

“If you are unkind to yourself you will be unkind to others,
and if you are negligent of yourself you will be that to others.
Only by feeling compassion for others can you feel compassion for others. 

If you cannot love yourself,
you cannot love others and you cannot stand to see others loved. 
If you cannot treat your own self kindly
you will resent that treatment when you see it in anyone else. 
If you cannot love yourself,
loving others becomes a very painful endeavor with only occassional moments of comfort. 
In other words, loving others, or how you treat yourself,
is your own dose of your own medicine that you really give to others at the same time.”

– Gary Zukav, The Seat of the Soul

    Those are some very powerful words. If not taken into ones self, the consequences can be a very fruitless and disagreeable life.
