Infinite Lovers are willing to share about themselves and their self-worth. People without love think negatively about themselves and their self-worth.

The heart of opening to love is self-love and honesty with yourself. The earliest writings of yoga are credited to Patanjali, and mention the idea of ahimsa. Often translated as non-violence, it’s more than not killing or being violent with other sentient beings. It’s also about not being violent to yourself.

Those who are spending their energy hiding their true selves (even from themselves) or putting down themselves, are moving away from love. On the other hand, those who are open and comfortable and most importantly, kind to themselves, become walking invitations to love.

This is one of the Infinite Love Principles. For the full list, follow this link.

Please leave comments with your thoughts and feelings about this and the other Infinite Love Principles.

  2. Yes, most of us do that – hiding or holding back – thinking it might somehow protect us. Being love and loving ourselves lets us drop our defenses so we can be seen, and so we can be loved.
    Being willing to share means being willing to be the love that we are.

  3. Very good post Captain.
    I’ve got few thoughts to share with you.

    Just like the way we need to be self-loving, it is also required to be friendly with ourselves.
    I think friendship is equally valuable as love is. Friendship has its own riches just like love has its own.

    I’ve got a question for you Captain.
    Doesn’t negativity has its own advantages, such a way it can be valued ?

  4. Dear Satzie,
    Thanks for your observations and your interesting question.
    Yes, negativity does have advantages, just as positivity has disadvantages. We can’t have one side of a coin without the other.
    So, the best we can do is see things as they are without judgement. Accepting reality is much more powerful than conjuring up some image of ourselves. Being willing to accept ourselves just as we are, can make us more loving of ourselves and also more lovable.
    Those who think too negatively about themselves – or too positively – may be lost in right/wrong thinking.
    Thanks again for your thought-inspiring questions.

  5. Thanks, yes, shyness can sometimes be modesty. Being love lets us be who we are without any sense that others will put conditions on us, or even that those conditions will affect us. I think it was Hafiz who said “Even after all this time. The sun never says to the earth, “you owe me.” Look what happens with a love like that. It lights the whole sky.”

  6. Great post, VP. It is astounding that encounters with such simple truths can spark such feelings of recognition, knowing and holy desire. It leads me to believe the upside to existence as we have known it is truly TREMENDOUS.

  7. Dear Michael,
    Thanks for noticing and sharing that flash of recognition. Yes, this is only the beginning of something truly astounding! Isn’t it great?

  8. Thanks for your comment – which was also thought-provoking. Maybe we’ll never know which comes first, or maybe belief in abundance and expressing love are two sides of the same coin?
