“If you truly loved yourself, you could never hurt another.”
The first major thing in finding true love is you need to love yourself. If you love yourself only, you can create a strong foundation to have a lasting bond with someone and also it opens yourself to be fully present for them. If you truly love yourself, you can see the reflection of the love within someone else as we all are connected to each other and we all are spiritually one.
“Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.”
If you seek peace and love from something or someone outside of yourself, is not exactly correct. As for the Eastern Philosophy, if you do that, you put yourself for eventual disappointment. You all know that everything is fleeting and emotional happiness moves like the wind. But, the real happiness comes from a state of being as it flows naturally within. You don’t need to add extra things as it is already there. If you can notice completeness within, you can truly, honestly offer something, love in a relationship.
“Love the whole world as a mother loves her only child.”
The whole world deserves our love; not only a person or a family. The problem in the world today is the concept of “Us four and no more.” People always think that their effort and time is worth only for their family. But, what if we imagine the entire world as our family, we’ll start to expand the love circle, and we’ll feel an obligation to help others. If everyone thinks like that, the world would be a different and a beautiful place.
“Whatever words we utter should be chosen with care, for people will hear them and be influenced by them for good or ill.”
It’s really easy to get angry and project it to the others, especially those we love. If we are using negative and harmful words to others, it can easily damage your relationship with them. And you won’t be able to create a strong bond with anyone.
“Hatred does not cease through hatred at any time. Hatred ceases through love. This is an unalterable law.”
If you are in a situation where someone is using hurtful and damaging words to you, you should remember that there are always different ways in how we react. If we choose to come from a place of love rather than coming from anger, it can save a relationship. It also helps the other person to realize that there are better ways to go about things. Remember that, reacting with anger only gives more fuel to the fire.
“Happiness will never come to those who fail to appreciate that which they already have.”
A common thing that can be found in relationships is one or both of the partners are looking around to see if the grass is greener on the other side. They are on a constant subconscious desire to see if they can go for something better.
It means they’re not committed.
It’s better if you have the gratitude for what you have, if not it can really set things ups to failure. Always be thankful for what you have.
