A Life Purpose Exercise: How Do You See Yourself?
By Melanie Votaw ©
Your self-image has a lot to do with your ability to discover and pursue your life purpose. It is important to cultivate self-love and enhance your self-image. Today you are invited to take steps towards this end with the Life Purpose Exercise below.
You Are Love
Society does each of us a disservice when we're taught that self-love is egotistical. Emmanuel, a spirit guide channeled by Pat Rodegast, says, "True self-love is not ego. True love is great humility. Love and compassion for others cannot exist until there is a goodly supply for self. How can you feel the love of God if you do not love yourself? Are they not one and the same thing?"
You must first fill your own pitcher with love before it can spill over for others. You can't give to anyone else if your own pitcher is empty.
As Emmanuel eludes, we are all connected to one another and all part of the Divine. Love is all there is; your essence is pure love. You don't learn how to love yourself or others; rather, you open your heart to the love that is already present and let it flow back and forth between you and others.
In this spirit, you are encouraged to do some self-evaluation with this life purpose exercise now.
