In this section of the E-Book Back to the Garden: Cultivating Love in Our Lives, we focus on our Divine qualities. We work to shift our sense of identity from the ego to the Higher Self, which is the source of all our virtues.
Once we have surrendered gratefully to the Higher Self, we can transform egoistic self-love to true Self-Love. We can begin to transform the romantic, egoistic love relations that never seems to last into loving partnerships that endure. We can move from alienation to Unity consciousness, from sorrow and separation to a sense of oneness with the Divine.
This introduction to the e-book Back to the Garden explores the spiritual laws of love in all its varieties, the nature of soulmates, and the importance of subtle energy exchange in a happy marriage.
On one thing all spiritual teachings agree. It is better to be loved than not to be loved, and it is far better to love than not to love.
When mindful awareness blazed in the Buddha like a bright sun, Buddha achieved enlightenment. Buddha had used a certain aspect of his egoistic mind to transcend the ego altogether.
Give yourself permission to love yourself first. This is not selfish, egotistical or easy.
