The Trail Of Our Truth
There is a direct relationship between self-compassion and how you behave. What you are hateful of within yourself will find its way into your behavior in harmful ways.
Look behind you as if gazing all the way back to the beginning of you as a human consciously behaving in the world. If that trail of behavior is one unending flow of consistency radiant with truth, self-compassion and peace, then you don’t need to read this book. For myself, this trail has breaks, like a lifeline in my hand seeking its true North.
Don’t dwell on the breaks and inconsistencies; start with now. Start with knowing what the true action of self-love and compassion is. I say this because in my own looking back, those actions contrary to my current behavior, which are in alignment with the spine of my life, were the result of a behavior lacking in true self-compassion.
