Christian dictum love thy neighbour as
Christian dictum is : love thy neighbour as thyself. But how can
I love others if I don't love myself?
Osho: The first and foremost thing is to be loving towards
yourself. Don't be hard; be soft. Care about yourself. Learn how
to forgive yourself -- again and again and again -- seven times,
seventy-seven times, seven hundred seventy-seven times. Learn
how to forgive yourself. Don't be hard; don't be antagonistic
towards yourself. Then you will flower.
And in that flowering you will attract some other flower. It is
natural. Stones attract stones; flowers attract flowers. And
then there is a relationship which has grace, which has beauty,
which has a benediction in it. And if you can find such a
relationship, your relationship will grow into prayer... your
love will become an ecstasy... and through love you will know
what God is.
