Via Mindfulness in Daily Life: Gyalwang Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje
deepest reasons to love yourself have nothing to do with anything
outside you—not with your body or with others’ expectations of you. If
you ground yourself in your own goodness, nothing will be able to damage
your self-esteem. Take delight in your inner nature, in your virtues,
and in all your beautiful qualities.
- His Holiness the Gyalwang Karmapa
