Love and the Self:
From Robert Adams:
Robert's December 13, 1992-12-13 Satsang. He tells how to love yourself by loving the self that appears in the moment. This was in response to a question asked of him: HOW DO I MAKE LOVE TO THE SELF? DO I LOVE THE HIGHER SELF? LOWER SELF?
ROBERT: The self im speaking about is not the higher or lower self. Think of someone you love unconditionally, ultimately, no strings attached. It may be your dog or cat or a person. You have to have unconditional love for this and feel that love. Realize that love you feel is love for yourself, you are the guru, god, Krishna, your wife. Feel that love.
This requires practice. If you practice this you will develop really fast. Most people think they have to love the self that appears or love god or brahmin. You cant love God if you dont know what he is. You cant love Brahmin if you haven't experienced it. You have to love something you've experienced. And it expands, becomes all-pervading.
