The Unknowing of being Self Love is the Cause of (Most) Suffering.

Self-realization is Love-realization. Love-realization is the realization that one is literally Self Love itself. Self Love IS the state of beingness. One is for One is. One cannot not be. One's unknowing leads to systemic suffering among all sentient beings. It is only by understanding that One is Self Love itself that suffering will (c)ease for it will set off a chain reaction of compassion towards all sentient beings. May all beings thus know themselves as Self Love for it is what they inherently are. Self Love is the first truth and it is evident in all.
