Be relentless

Be relentless in living

Be relentless in loving

Loving your-self

Be relentlessly happy

Be relentlessly sad

Don’t numb yourself from life

Be you
All of you
Be grateful
For all of you
Be loving
Of all of you
Be gentle
With all of you

And then love thy neighbour as you love yourself

I wanted to give this a try. Not yet happy with it though.

I wrote this because a while back, a long discussion with a friend, highlighted that often adversary we feel towards others, is based on us seeing things in them we do not like about ourselves. So we project our secret self-loathing, or even just the niggling dislikes, onto others. As someone who has very well honed skills in self-loathing I was always intrigued by the commandment of loving ones neighbour as one loves oneself.
