Victor Hugo: “The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved; loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves.”
Whether we are loved for ourselves or in spite of ourselves, we receive genuine love always from our Unique Self.
The degree to which we perceive ourselves being genuinely loved for ourself is proportional to the degree we identify with the True Self, the unqualified Ground of Being of which there is only one. The degree to which we see ourselves as loved in spite of who we are is a reflection of how much we are out of alignment with our own Unique Self, a barrrier to fulfillment which keeps us from receiving and giving love unconditionally.
