A Quote by Swami Sai Premananda on love, principles, god, and sweetness

Going forward, when you open your mouth to yell at somebody, you should know immediately that that is coming back to you. That is also self-love. Self-love is understanding the higher principles of a human life, the laws that we’re bound by and have to live within. I’ll tell you, there is self-forgiveness and there is self-acceptance. If you can work on these alone you will grow in love. You will have this love for yourself. Then the more God-work you do, naturally love for yourself will come because you begin to have such beautiful feelings inside you, such tenderness inside you, such compassion inside you, such sweetness that you say, “Yeah, I love me because I’m pretty lovable.”
