Love Yourself

I believe that I've posted about this particular book before now but I wanted to put this out there again regardless because I've gotten back into it and I think that I'm in a better place than I was before to get the most out of it.

It's a simple message that I think would have received a little more attention if it was longer. As the author states in here, he thought that increasing the page numbers of this book would have only served to pad his ego. That may be true but again, people don't like buying tiny books.

As I said it's a simple message, which essentially boils down to creating a positive mental loop. If you've looked into Neuroscience or Meditation at all, you'll be familiar with the term mental loop or the default mode in the brain. I'm not an expert on this so I'm not sure if my terminology is dead on but...essentially your brain, and your thoughts are not the result of your conscious creation of them. Does that make sense? Unless you've made an effort through various types of mantras or meditation, your thoughts have largely been determined by what you've been taught or experienced. Those experience from your past have created grooves in your mind in which you continued to run through again and again.

The point of all of this is that you can change the way your brain works (neuroplasticity) by actively thinking or meditating in a certain way. This book wants you to say, "I love myself," over and over again so that, even if you aren't paying attention to your thoughts, you'll start there instead of running over an old painful habit of emotions.

If you are so inclined, you should check this one out. Or, simply start thinking, "I love myself," over and over for at least 30 days and see if you notice any difference in your thoughts or in any other aspects of your life.

I know that I'm not the first one to say this but, if you can't love yourself first, nobody else will.

This is a link to Amazon if you wanted to check it out. As I've said before, I don't think that I'm getting a kickback on this or anything else on this blog right now. So don't pick it up for my sake (So sake, the word, and Sake the beverage are spelled the same. How bout that?)
