PBP Week 27 – Nurturing Ourselves

I only have a few moments for this week’s post, but wanted to share something that appeared on  Tcich Nhat Hanh’s Facebook Wall earlier this week:

The Foundation of Love. If we do not know how to take care of ourselves and to love ourselves, we cannot take care of the people we love.”

You know, I don’t think anything I could add would make this statement more profoundly true or meaningful.  A thought occurs to me, though:  Learning to love, nurture, and care for oneself is an incredibly important step on the path to finding, understanding, and celebrating our spiritual selves.  And it can be one of the toughest and most difficult lessons that we encounter on our journeys.   That’s all for now… just take care of you and the rest will follow.
