The utter importance of self-love and self-respect


Although there are many, many nuances and facets to people, as well as to everything for that matter, when it comes to one of the more profound ways through which I and we express ourselves, as both consciousness and as individuals, it is pretty much always the case that the so-called “inner world” creates the so-called “outer world”.

This applies both esoterically, in terms of how we create our own reality, with regards to – among other things – how we always create, mold and shape it to our will, including how we create and pull in synchronistic events and opportunities that reflect our own mode of being or “resonance”, as well as in terms of how our behaviour towards ourselves is reflected in our views on life, and how we treat other living beings; human or otherwise.

So, if you hate yourself, you’re going to tend to hate the world, life and other people. If you’re indifferent or apathetic towards yourself, you’re gonna have similar views towards life and other living beings.

Likewise, when we love and respect, know and comprehend ourselves, we naturally tend to exhibit similar behaviours towards others.

I’ve seen people literally be in a state of “happiness” when witnessing someone else having problems in their life, experiencing hardships or just generally being in a shittier state or situation than they’re in. That can take an extroverted form of ridicule, in the line of “Har, har, look at you, you’re so shit!” or the introverted form of “Oh, I’m so happy someone else is as fucked up as I am, or worse.”, as if that somehow makes it okay. No, it doesn’t! And you’re a self-loathing sack of shit, and you’re not doing anything to improve yourself; and then you’re just looking for petty excuses to remain a lazy, weak-ass bitch. Fuck you! Learn to actually love yourself, motherfucker!

Now, while I am and will continue to be berating people, when I consider that they’re doing shit to themselves and thus contributing to bringing about more pointless, artificial suffering to the world by doing so (well, for anyone who falls for the bullshit, and nobody else), my vitriol comes from a motivation of actual love and an intent to actually have them face themselves, while reminding them both of the bullshit that they’re doing, as well as that they can easily overcome it, if they so choose.

I will always treat others as I treat myself. I am honest to myself, and thus I’ll be honest to everyone else. I criticize myself harshly and honestly, but fairly and proportional to my mistakes and the reasons behind making them, while also knowing that I and we are infinite consciousness, and thus infinite potential, and thus everything is always a choice. As such, I am very easily capable of recognizing my own aptitudes, abilities, skills and so on, while also always looking to improve, and appreciating myself for it; but first and foremost, loving myself for no reason. I love myself because. Because why? Just because. Because I am. Because whatever. I love myself unconditionally.

When one actually loves themselves to such an extent, two of the most natural results are the approach of always being interested in self-improvement and self-elevation, as well as an increased empathy towards others.

And since we’re not “comparing dick sizes” in the puerile macho-fest and artificially divisive endeavor that is the modern definition of “competition” in our currently fucked up society, we don’t have a finite point of reference for our evolution. Instead of wanting to only superficially “improve”, most often in things that you’re not really interested in, by the way, because “jobs” or because you want to “one-up” someone, before then stagnating when you think you’re “the top dawg” or have a monopoly… yeah, instead of setting up a rigid, stagnant pole to shackle yourself onto and then run in circles around it, what we do is we don’t put limiters on our progress, and instead of “raising the bar”, so to speak, we don’t set up a bar in the first place.

Instead, we know that the only person we ever need to be better than, is who we were the moment prior. This way, there is no finite point of reference for our growth, and therefore the we tap into more, and more, and more of ourselves as infinite consciousness and potential. The path is no longer narrow, and often times there is not even a “road” of which to speak. It’s an omnidirectional and omnidimensional adventure! There is also no artificial pressure, because we consciously do things our own way, which also includes the approach of never accepting any bullshit from anyone. As well as because we’ll thus naturally not be handing out any shit to anyone, either.

Live and let live. Do no harm, but take no shit. I guarantee you, that when you love yourself genuinely, you’ll overcome all challenges and you’ll do it consciously and confidently.

Both in general, as well as if you see you’re doing shit, or if you’re currently inept at doing something that you’re actually interested in, and say that you want to do; or, alternatively, that you’re doing something that you’re not excited to be doing. Piece of advice: stop making excuses!

Making excuses is a sign of weakness and cowardice. Walk the talk or shut the fuck up. You say you don’t like your job and want to do something better with your life than being a wage-slave? Or, you realize you’re working an immoral job, like in a “government” (slavery system) position of any kind? Renounce the job! Create or/and look for opportunities! Learn to be more autonomous and self-improving. There may be challenges, but if your choice is genuine, everything you will experience, no matter how pleasant or unpleasant it may be, will be a means through which you’ll achieve everything you want to achieve, and become the beautiful, strong, intuitive, intelligent and compassionate being you genuinely are. Peel aside the layers of bullshit and indoctrination, break the shackles of fear and undo the bondage of ignorance, and you will be anything you’ll ever want to be. Literally and metaphorically.

Our world is a living, caring, nurturing, sexy and soothing lass. Nature is intrinsically profound. Life is profoundly beautiful. And, ya know what? So is death, when you realize that it’s not the “oblivion” that most people erroneously believe it to be, and it’s actually one of the many ways through which we shift our individual attention from one form to another.

Anyway, the point is, everything and everyone is infinitely spiritual, intuitive, intelligent, beautiful and so on. Things beyond the illusions of life, nature and reality, infinitely more so. In this context, I say “illusions” not in a derogatory sense, but as an allusion to the idea that anything that has “form” or “definition”, or which can be pointed out and said that “hey, this particular thing is this particular thing” is actually a manifestly “finite” expression of ourselves as infinity, unlimitedness and veyond; as well as ourselves as such, manifesting “in-form” and engaging in what’s pretty much an equivalent of roleplay, with and between ourselves and different aspects of ourselves.

Once we remember that, we can be “in” the world, but not “of” it; playing out whatever characters we chose to express ourselves as, in life, and being involved in that adventure and endeavor, while at the same time recognizing it as such and as a piece of art that I/we always create, as well as remembering ourselves as such, both as and beyond it.

Then, we also remember, among other things…

Nobody and nothing has a higher claim to our lives than we do.

There can be no “chosen” ones. Only we can save ourselves, and only we are responsible for doing so. All suffering is self-inflicted and all evolution and elevation are self-facilitated.

Freedom is never given. Freedom is never taken.

I/we are all and always free and freedom, imagination, will and intent… infinity, unlimitedness and veyond… among other things…

Why, how and what we choose to manifest is always a choice, and the choice is always ours to make.
