Every man possesses selflove, and also justified, but it is not allowed to exceed the love for the fellowman, what is however the case, when the man goes past his trouble, when he believes, not being able to share, because he possesses not much himself. Read more:

Right measure of selflove - "as thyself. "

27. November 1954. B.D. NR. 6121.

To bring a sacrifice in favour of your fellowman is true unselfish neighbourly love - then you love the fellowman more than yourselves. And if you give him the same, what is desirable to yourselves, then you love him as yourselves. I just demand this neighbourly love, i.e., it must also be practised in free will, and it will bring in spiritual blessing to you. But so you are also prepared to sacrifice, so you voluntarily do without, to be able to give to the neighbour, then this neighbourly love is far more valuable and therefore also the success for the soul far greater. A measure of selflove has been granted to man, because such is necessary for the fulfilment of the earth task, that man may preserve his bodily life, that he gives to himself that, what the body needs, to be able to cover earth life. But this selflove is not allowed to exceed the measure, so that man does not remember his neighbour - that he just gives everything to himself, therefore love is directed wrongly. For that reason I added the words: "as thyself. " And therefore man will now be able to apply standards to his thinking and acting - he must, if he wants to fulfil my will, remember his neighbour in the same way, as he gives to himself. And according to love willingness of the heart man will now fulfil my command more easily or more difficultly. But who moves himself back behind the neighbour, his heart is extremely willing to love, and he will reach perfection very easily. But everything is left up to you. I indeed gave you the love command, but who does not want to fulfil it, he pays no attention to the command - but who has love in him, he does not need my command. And only this is right love, which gets active out of itself, without being urged to do it through commands. But that man, whose attention is drawn to my love command, can also perform works of love without inner pushing, at first only stimulated through this command - until then the love spark in him flares up more and more and makes the man himself happy, so he busies himself lovingly towards the neighbour. But only that is assessed, what is caused by love for the neighbour. Love thy neighbour as thyself. Every man possesses selflove, and also justified, but it is not allowed to exceed the love for the fellowman, what is however the case, when the man goes past his trouble, when he believes, not being able to share, because he possesses not much himself. He is to also share the little with him, and he will not be hurt as a result, for so he does it out of love, it will be amply repaid to him - for I myself measure out to him, as he has measured out. But the loving man does not first consider; he also gives under sacrifices, and his reward will truly be great in heaven. For he will always get richer, the more he sacrifices, the more he makes fellowman happy. He will be allowed to receive much love and be in contact with me, because he has changed himself to love.
Amen. B.D. NR. 6121.
