Ego vs Love

An exerpt from the book Teach Only Love: Twelve Principles of Attitudinal Healing, by Gerald G. Jampolsky.

The ego looks around for what to criticize. This always involves a comparison with the past or with others. But love looks upon the world peacefully and accepts.                               

The ego searches for shortcomings and weaknesses. Love watches for any sign of light and strength. It sees how far each one has come and not how far he has to go.

How simple it is to love and how exhausting it is to always find fault. For every time we see a fault we think something needs to be done about it. Love knows that nothing is ever needed but more love.

I haven't read this book yet. Someone shared this exerpt with me and I was very drawn to its message. This book is now on the top of my 'to read' list. Would love to hear your thoughts too.

To good health,
Chana
