Self Love is the Key

I think that there is an interesting parallel between our attitude to ourselves when we are experiencing disease and the overall level of self-love we experience and express. One is a barometer of the other. So by becoming aware of our personal response to when we are not perfect, i.e. sick in some way, we can really start to understand and get in touch with our level of self-love.

To truly know self-love and compassion is the only goal and all paths lead here. Returning home; the knowing of the divine self; soul consciousness; the higher self; Nirvana; Ascension and so on are different ways of describing self-love. If the divine, God, the great Creator, whatever term we want to use, is ultimately love then understanding self-love is embracing and becoming one and becoming one with all of creation.

One of the things that we will be exploring in these blogs is the gifts of disease. All of creation is in balance, Yin and Yang, dark and light, negative and positive. Duality is only when we see these as separate energies and do not understand that the one depends totally on the other for its existence.

We are very well trained in seeing the negative side of disease but to truly heal, balance needs to be found by exploring the possibilities, and therefore exploring true nature of disease by searching out the gifts.

Our constant mantra when Kevin was suffering (and I use that word consciously) with the cancer was “What is the gift”.

So perhaps today we can list the first two gift of being unwell. It is the possibility to see clearly how we can love ourselves more and how we can find more balance.  This gift is not to be underestimated.
