Goodness provides a service to others. Love realizes that there are no others.
If we are kind to ourselves, we will not be unkind to anyone else. The reverse is also true.
Kindness begins at home, with the self. Self-contempt is a grievous error.
Kindness is not personal. It’s like health—an activity of consciousness.
Consciousness is not personal. Love is not personal. We are individual expressions of the same consciousness. If we are ‘in love’, we are in love with ourselves.

The tribal mind is what takes us to war. It’s why humans kill humans.
We don’t actually die. What happens is, we serve the common good; we create a space for others. Ancestor worship, while pleasing to our ancestors, is a bit misplaced.
