Self-love, and difference between self and the Self
What is self? Me, I.
This thing that you refer to as the self, is not one thing.
Let’s for the purpose of understanding, call it, self with a small ‘s’ and Self with a capital ‘S’. Understand this!
We operate incessantly with this only (‘s’), with our thoughts. And here, there is no possibility of any Love. Just ruled out.
