. . . you could never hurt anyone." Buddha
When we exercise compassion and Love for our self, we understand the human condition and through Love we recognize that on so many levels we are all the same. From that perspective of the Heart, Loving our self is also Loving other human beings as well because we are all one. We know what hurts us would hurt another and we know what makes us happy would also help another to be happy. The Golden Rule: "Do unto others as you would have others do unto you" also reminds us of this principle. Love is a positive energy which resonates with more positive energy. As we so Love our self, we naturally vibrate that same love to others.
