The remarkable thing is that
we really do love our neighbour
we do unto others
as we do unto ourselves
We hate others when we hate ourselves.
We are tolerant towards others
when we are tolerant toward ourselves.
We forgive others when we forgive ourselves.
We are prone to sacrifice others
when we are ready to sacrifice ourselves.
It is not love of self
but hatred of self
which is at the root of the troubles
that afflict our world.
