Love your neighbour and yourself

A thought for today....

"Love is the centre and the core of everything, and that Self is the place where all love must begin. Those who love others grandly are those who love themselves grandly. Those who have a high toleration and acceptance of others are those who have a high toleration and acceptance of themselves. You cannot show another a part of you that you cannot show yourself. Therefore, begin where all growth, where all evolution, where all love must begin: with the person in the mirror.

Will you not love yourself grandly today? For the world's sake?"

Neale Donald Walsch

About this author

I write books, short stories, and sometimes boring stuff that I am sure no one will ever read - but I am paid to write it!

I paint pictures to recover from writing and I write to recover from painting pictures. I have a day job that pays the bills. I am married, Christian and have degrees in arts, town planning and theology.
I love strawberries and tomatoes but not together. In winter I eat porridge for breakfast but in summer I eat granola.
I hate the slugs and mice that eat the veggies I try to grow in my garden. I live in Scotland.
