For the first time, I spent Valentine’s Day differently. I gave love to others and also to myself. Self care and self love are integral parts of each of our lives. By loving ourselves we create more space to love others. Open your heart and let the spirit speak.
"Love is a process in which ego is lost and infinity is experienced. Love is a creative energy, an experience of one’s Self within oneself. Love knows no pain—no sacrifice is too much for it. Love is an absolute one-pointed state of mind, focused on the well-being of the other person, who is called lover or beloved. In love we honor. In love we grace people. In love we support. In love we sacrifice. In love we give. In love we elevate. In love we pray. Human love is for one thing only: to love your soul. The Infinite world around you will be in love with you. Man has to live in love—love which is not lust. Love where there is no possession, no slavery of another person. Love which is a giving. Love which is for the sake of love. Love which lasts forever. Love which is a total sacrifice. Love which is more than the grace of God itself. Love which gives a halo around the face of the person. Love through which one can see God in the eyes of the person. Love with which the body shines, the words become sweet, and the communication is absolutely beautiful. That love for which one sacrifices his own life to save a little bit of injury to another person. That love with which one pleasantly and peacefully takes all the pain in his heart to redeem another fellow being. That love can only flow when one knows how to tune into that universal God. The game of love means to identify ourselves as Infinity, not as an individual—that’s the difference.It’s a huge difference, you have to understand today. You cannot identify yourself as an individual. You have to become a very simple, solid, neutral, well-mannered, and loving person. Love is the experience within one’s self of one’s own selflessness; that’s why love is God. Love is the most secure place in an individual. It is very secure, very deep, very curative healing. It has no pain. It’s not limited. The highest state of security of an individual is when a person is in the state of love. It is a consciousness which can penetrate through anything for that thing and nothing can penetrate it. When you feel and experience selflessness within yourself and you can vibrate for someone, then you are fulfilled with love. This is the highest state of individual consciousness." — @yogibhajan
My prayer for you today is that you will make space to love yourself. Through this practice you will see how effortlessly you can begin to love others without judgement. Find a spiritual practice that works for you. Look within. Become vulnerable with yourself. Vulnerability: look up, look in, look forward, look around and look back.

💫Today’s @innercompasscards Reading💫
Have the courage to be vulnerable, and show the real you. Para- doxical as it may sound, there is real strength in vulnerability. It is tempting to show people the perfect version of you. You have spent years building shields in order to protect yourself and minimize the risk of painful criticism. You wear a mask to hide your imperfections. the danger of all this, however, is that you miss the chance to really be you. From that space can you make honest connections with others? Let this card inspire you to try out new things. Be your authentic self. Take risks; it is okay to fail. There is no such thing as perfection, let go of that false ideal. Vulnerability gets linked to fragility and getting hurt, on the contrary, it means that you do not need protection, there is nothing that you need to be protected from. Pretending to be vulnerable just to get what you want, manipulative and insincere. It takes bravery to show yourself, naked, and to expose yourself in all your vulnerable splendor. Authentic strength opens many doors leading to inner depth, real communication, love and the courage to follow your heart.
