last year i was madly infatuated with a person and i felt like i wasn't a complete person without a returned feeling. i had a dream about this person last night, which is how it all started in the first place, and now i feel it coming back. what i came to through self counciling meditation was to fill my self with self love. am i on the right track?
Yes that is absolutely the right track.
"There is no remedy for love but to love more." ~ Henry David Thoreau
Your intuition has been very direct with you and it is a good idea to heed it. Though there is one bit of crucial advice I will give:
Just love. It doesn’t matter what or who you love, in fact the vaguer the better. What you love isn’t the point, just loving is what matters. So when even the notion of loving yourself gets in the way, drop it and just love.
Who knows, one moment you may feel unworthy of love. Many people do. But love is not a commodity we give others or deserve or earn. Love is your natural state of being.
The next time you feel love, stop and see from where it comes. It arises from within you. We fixate so much on what we love, we actually think the love comes from that thing. Love only ever comes from you.
So that is the distinction I would make. Love yourself. And when it comes time, be ready to let go of even that limitation.
Then you will never know a day without love for the rest of your life.
“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” ~ Rumi
Namaste sis! Much love
