Another death of a woman has occured, and renewed calls for health care reform are rising even higher. But, in these cases its not the reformation of the health care system but, of the human heart and mind that should be reformed. We certainly could slant these stories to show that this is a lack of respect for women, or the continued expression of racial discrimination or an American backlash against immigrants coming to the U.S., yet truly this may not be the case. It’s more of a case of the lack of humanity, a hardening of the heart, a turning away from the compassionate heart and the love of Self ,the God within. Where is the love? Are we living in a world devoid of love for ourselves? You may wonder what loving ourselves has to do with the treatment of others.
Self love, not selfish love but, love of one’s self, is the beginning of true love. We live in a world that loves the Lord, loves God, has deep love and reverence for Allah, loves life, and all too often many people don’t love themselves. How can you love another, a Spirit without loving yourself? I know of no God or Goddess that requires you to love them and allows for you to turn your back on yourself. The God that allows for the love of it and not require you to love you, is a false God, a God of the human imagination,a an expression of the human ego. Would not this God require for you what it requires for itself? Self love opens the gate of light that allows the true self to see The Most High in one’s self, to see The Most High in all things. This Most High God/Goddess knows that when you love yourself you are loving and reverencing the The Most High in yourself and, that God is living in every man, woman and child and creature on this planet and you could no less love that God and not love yourself and you fellow human relatives.
Because the people working at Kings County Hospital in Brooklyn, New York where Esmin Green lay dying on the floor. And, where Edith Isabel Rodriguez perished on the floor at Martin Luther King Hospital’s ER in Los Angeles, California could not see the God in themselves, could not see the God in these women they, allowed them to die like animals on a slaughter house floor. Because the people working at these facilities could not see themselves in these women as they lay dying, a little piece of them each died the moment their sisters died.
