L- Love yourself first. There is no other person that deserves your love more than you.
O- Others love themselves too, fiercely. Therefore respect others and refrain from harming all living beings.
V- Voice your love to yourself and others as often as possible. Contemplate on this everyday and spread your positive thoughts to all living beings.
E- Extinguish any guilty feelings. Forgive yourself and then others. You don't need to carry the baggage of the past. Guilty feelings weigh your mind down. Thus it is best to let them go.
Why did we create this blog
This blog was created in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting in Newtown, USA, where 20 first-graders ages ranging from 6-7 were massacred by an angry 2o year old gunman. This took place on the 14th of December, 2012. We believe if he was taught how to love himself, how to be kind to himself, how to be compassionate to himself and how to appreciate himself, from an earlier age (pre-school) none of these things would have happened. It was a very sad occasion to all of us and it is time now to change its course. We have to acknowledge this happened, forgive the person who did it and learn from this tragedy. -Devni W.
