Rudy Francisco: Perhaps we should love ourselves so fiercely



Perhaps, we should

love ourselves so fiercely,

that when others see us

they know exactly

how it should be done.

– Rudy Francisco

Yes. And the love is a simple love of presence, meeting what’s arising in me in presence and with love and patience. Meeting whatever is arising in that way, no matter how scary it may at first seem.

It’s such an irony that it can seem scary to meet our own experience in this way. And yet, that fear is the gatekeeper to a life that’s far more peaceful and authentic.
