You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection. ~ Buddha

Kirk Douglas, legendary actor and Hollywood icon, tells a deeply thought-provoking story.

Some years ago he was driving down the freeway in Southern California when he spotted a young man hitchhiking. He pulled over and the youngster jumped in.

It was only after he was in the car that he took a look at Kirk. With a shocked expression on his face, he blurted out “Do you know who you are?”

That’s a great question to ask ourselves. Do we know who we are?

Here’s Spirit.

  • When you know your true self life gets easier, even effortless.
  • You will then find it easier to trust your inner guidance, your intuition. You will find it easy to love yourself unconditionally.
  • There is nothing more important than that you do this.
  • Self-love is the key to all you search for.
  • When you love yourself unconditionally you are fully aligned with your spirit, with God. Then you will know, beyond doubt or question, you are God.
  • We know this concept is sometimes hard for human minds to grasp.
  • Any time you have a hunch, a premonition, an inspiration, a sense of something you could not consciously know–these are all communication from your spirit, from God.
  • Your connection to God, to your spirit, is your true home. Wherever you go, you are home.
  • You are powerful and wise beyond your wildest dreams.
  • You deserve all the love you can give yourself.
  • If you insist on worshiping someone, make it yourself, your spirit–that part of you that is God.
  • That part of you that is God is the real you, the whole you.
