There is a big difference between loving yourself (narcissism and imagining) and love realized within the self. One is an affirmation that many think will happen if you have a change of a state of mind. The other is an awareness of the true nature of yourself and reality within consciousness.
It is not possible to know love within your mind. To the mind it is a word that brings up many images and emotions, but that is not the reality of love. It does not deeply confirm your deserve-ability as a being of light. Love is the fullness of awareness filling your being. It is recognition within your state of consciousness of the true nature of reality and yourself. It is knowing with absolute certainty that love is your true nature of beingness.
