Can we love others without loving ourselves first?

Truth is at best partial, at worst error. We are at best explorers, at worst believers. If we desire to fully grow we must keep exploring. . . Welcome Explorers! (And curious believers too!)

This is a group for exploring and testing each other's new ideas, and for the potential of creating even more together!

As a starting point we'll discuss the possibility of:

A natural morality based on our passion's values;

A politics that roots out resentment so we can enjoy

a unified diversity;

And a culture of 7 billion honest individuals---

with not one truth!

 

This morality, politics, and culture have one goal: That we each flourish--that we each fully bloom into all that we are--together.

 

Can it happen? Should it happen? What do you propose? Let's talk about it!

    Rick, Amity and Yoshi--I really enjoyed meeting you and speaking with you tonight. Sorry I left in such a hurry but my stomach was not feeling well. I hope to see you all again soon.

      For the discussion, personally, love cannot be explain by any religious book. We have to feel about love including ourselves. As Mohammad Gandhi said love can save the world. I also believe this feeling!

    Can we love ourselves so much that we don't care about others?

    Can sacrificing for other be an expression of love and/or love of oneself and/or something else?

      Yen, we rely on you to ask these great questions! I'll ask the group tonight and let you know what we come up with. Wish you were able to be here.

    I am not feeling well and may not be able to make it tonight.

      Okay, only you can know whether caring (loving) for yourself is staying home or coming to this discussion, but I hope its the latter!

    I am sorry I cannot make this because of another event I am hosting.

    Is the expression "hating oneself" really mean "loving oneself" in disguise?
