LOVE YOURSELF. KNOW YOURSELF. -part 1-
Anton Leonard Claiborne
Knowledge of Self, you probably have heard or seen that phrase before, however, most often, you will hear people use the saying - Know Thy Self. The latter is slightly different, yet, it is the same as having knowledge of self or self knowledge. What I was taught about this empowering instructional guidance was: Know Thy Self and Knowledge of Self, the definitions are the same, but rarely are they understood, accepted and used in real life situations.
In my book, One Mind One Heart Many Hands, I present Knowledge-of-Self as a tool, and I teach my students how to use the tool in order to live life in the best manner for their lifestyle. I teach: Knowledge-of-self or self-knowledge allows you to look at yourself, without prejudice. It allows you to look at yourself, exploring as a scientist, studying and looking for that which can be discovered or made better or understood.
I also teach: Knowledge-of-self is the foundation of harmonious love relationships. It teaches self-love. It draws one into the acceptance of the greatest love of all - love of self. Being in love is awesome, but you will never know the full potential of being in a love relationship, where you two are in love with each other, unless both of you have self-love.
Being truthful with yourself - is loving yourself.
Keeping commitments to yourself - is loving yourself.
Moving forward and leaving your past in the past - is loving yourself.
Learning about why you make the same mistakes - is loving yourself.
Self love requires time in order to learn it. The time we use learning to love our self is rewarding because we begin to understand ourselves emotionally and physically. This understanding is what is referred to as having...Knowledge-of-Self.
When we decided to learn the reasons why we do things, we are using self-love. After learning why we do something, then proceeding to live life using those reasons, that is using knowledge of self. With the continued use of knowledge-of-self, living life becomes easier and fun, again.
After reconnecting with the love-of-yourself, you decide to be in a love relationship, well, with your rediscovered knowledge-of-self, genuine love mates will be accessible for you. People who want to be in love, just like you, will be easier for you to connect with. This will happen because, a person who loves who they are, will attract lovers who also have self-love due to knowledge-of-self.
Know your self...love your self. Live in the greatest love of all. Learn to use the awesome thing called, knowledge-of-self so you can attract the lover who has knowledge-of-self. Your union will be nourished by a love free of uncertainty and over flowing with good-times. You will find yourself in a harmonious love relationship which you will want to last far into your senior years and beyond.
