338 Common Misuse of Self

It must be the common misuse of words like self-love, self-gratification and self-interest that too often cause us to miss the Divine intent hidden within. Out of enlightened self-interest I am learning to seek and find our Father’s will for me. For sure that’s loving me and for sure it is Self-gratification. The only time we have is now so I must love myself now, be self-gratified now, interested in me now. If not this now, when I do experience these it will be a now. I’m being the individual our Father created me to be, and now has an immediacy about it. How could I love others as myself if I don’t love myself? I am interested in carrying out the mission or purpose our Father gave me. If I did not experience self-gratification I would not know when I was on His Path Home. I can now hear an AA Pharisee say to me; "you better call your sponsor or go to a meeting." Now that’s not a bad idea. It will let me experience a little self-love and enlightened self-interest by going to a meeting, which will cause me to have a little immediate self-gratification. Thy Love be done.
