Self-Love

Self-Love

Everyone claims to love the Lord more than they love anybody or anything else. But in reality, a human being loves himself more than he loves anybody else.

We help others and exhibit generosity for our own satisfaction and pleasure. Self-love is very discreet and you never happen to notice how much you love yourself.

In loving your own self, you exhibit love to others thinking this love will bounce back and that you will gain respect and love.

A common man will never think that he loves himself. But you love your children because they are your children and you love your wife because she is your wife. You do not feel the same love for another person’s children or wife.

Have you ever thought about how much you love yourself? Most people don’t think about it.

Everybody loves himself but you cannot love anybody else until you stop loving yourself.

Either you love yourself, or you love your wife, children, business or the Lord. You cannot love two different things at the same time, including yourself. If you say, ‘I love so-and-so,’ it means you love yourself and that person.

When you love others, you love them for your own sake. You actually love yourself and you express love to your children, wife, parents and fellowmen.

Now the question is: are you able to see whether or not you love the Lord more than you love yourself? Do you have a criterion upon which you can judge whose love weighs more in the scale of your heart?

In order to weaken self-love in you, you have to learn the art of forgiving.

If you have learned to forgive your enemy, it will benefit you greatly. By doing so, your ego will weaken thus lessening your self-love. However, if you retaliate and take revenge, you are causing great harm to yourself because it will strengthen your ego.

Ask yourself: is it easy for you to forgive others, especially those who have really damaged your good name, who are slandering and back-biting against you? It will always hurt; but relatively, it will become easy to say, ‘No, I am not going to retaliate. I will forgive.’

True forgiveness is not verbally saying, ‘I forgive you.’ Rather, it means there are no negative emotions or malice in your heart for that person. Your heart is clean.

But this ability to forgive comes with the abundance of Divine Energy in your heart and souls.

New Video: Sab Se Bara Shirk Kya Hai? | ALRA TV | By Younus AlGohar www.youtube.com/watch?v=D2h5i7ZIRjY&t=97s

What is the worst form of Shirk (Polytheism) according to God? Younus AlGohar explains in light of the Koran.

Main points:

God says in the Koran 25:43, 'O' Messenger of God, have you not seen those who have made the desires of the Lower Self as their Creator?'

- The greatest form of Shirk is arrogance; it is to practically worship your own Lower Self.

'One who manages to purify the Lower Self is successful.' (Koran 87:14)

- Until the Lower Self is purified, God will pay you no heed. The enlightenment of the Spiritual Heart and the purgation of the Lower Self hold the same status in the application of God's love as a letter from your employer and bank statements do when you apply for a visa. If you do not have these things when you send in your visa application, it will always be rejected even if you apply 1000 times.

Similarly, if you pray to God and ask for his love without purification of the Lower Self and enlightenment of the Spiritual Heart, God will become upset with you. God will say, 'What a foolish man! First become capable of seeking my love.' To be able to request God for his love, first, you have to fulfil the aforementioned prerequisites. If you do not have these things in your possession, do not ask for the love of God. Those who claimed to love God without fulfilling these conditions either became Sunni, Shiite or Wahhabi.
