When one truly accepts self, all this energy used for self-absorption is released as loving compassion.
High or low self esteem is a mind game....only self absorbed people play the game. But it's not possible to "decide" not to be self absorbed. The self absorption is a product of confusion and the healing is clarity.
It's the journey of all journey's from confusion to clarity. The confused mind is always thinking about the path out of confusion not realizing that thinking is the problem and acceptance is the solution.
