Freedom Comes From Self-love

Some years ago, I had a sudden insight. It fell into my mind one day, like a leaf falling into the still water of a lake:

“What if life is not a battle, but a love story?”

This deceptively simple question changed everything.

The Matrix keeps us in a constant state of war with ourselves and with each other. Freedom, the goal of all those who seek higher awareness, can’t be gained in battle — freedom can only come from self-love. Self-love is unconditional. You don’t love yourself because of what you do, what you know, or even because of who you are; you love yourself as God does: for the mere fact of your existence. No one can give you freedom; you have to earn it. Not by battling, not by hard work; freedom can be obtained only by surrendering.
