“I will say this to you as clearly as I can: If you do not know how to take care of yourself, and if you are not willing to do so, nobody else will take care of you. Your lack of love and commitment to yourself attracts people with similar lessons into your vibrational field. Then you will simply mirror back to each other that lack of self-understanding and self-commitment.
Commitment to another is impossible without commitment first to self. This is important. Those who try to act in a selfless way are putting the cart before the horse. Embrace the self first and then you go beyond it. What I am suggesting is not selfishness. It is the ultimate surrender to the divine within.”
Paul Ferrini, in “The Silence of the Heart”
