The heart of opening to love is self-love and honesty with yourself. The earliest writings of yoga are credited to Patanjali, and mention the idea of ahimsa. Often translated as non-violence, it’s more than not killing or being violent with other sentient beings. It’s also about not being violent to yourself.
Those who are spending their energy hiding their true selves (even from themselves) or putting down themselves, are moving away from love. On the other hand, those who are open and comfortable and most importantly, kind to themselves, become walking invitations to love.
