Practicing Maitri

“In order to have compassion for others, we must first have compassion for ourselves.” (Meagan McCrary)

They all say
Love all beings
Treat them as you would treat yourself
But how can you emanate a love
You don’t already have
It all has to start with you
Loving you
Not in a conceptual way
Not in a right or wrong way
But as a Human Being
An indivisible part of the whole
A perfect piece of the puzzle
A wise and deep Being
So make friends with yourself
Find compassion for yourself
Care and embrace yourself
Know your never ending worth
Your always renewed love
Try practicing Maitri

And start feeling at Home
With yourself
