“How Do I Love My Neighbor As Myself When I Don’t Love Myself?” (Quora)

Dr. Michael LaitmanMichael Laitman, On Quora: How do I love my neighbor as myself when I don’t love myself?

Human nature is completely self-serving and egoistic. We thus cannot but love ourselves. Even if we hate ourselves, for instance even if we wish to commit suicide, it still emerges from a self-serving calculation. Egoism is at the basis of our nature, and everything upon it is thus built out of self-love. It is the sole motive for all of our behavior.

Based on a video conference with Kabbalist Dr. Michael Laitman. Written/edited by students of Kabbalist Dr Michael Laitman.
