Re: Self-Esteem Without Selfishness: Increasing Your Capacity for Love

Indeed, Devra, it's a way of catching people's attention. But it is also true that the "self-love" felt by a good christian is much more than self-acceptance...

There are, indeed, so many ways in communicating. One of them is repeating beautiful words -as in Hail Mary- because, after years of intimacy, the most important things have been already said...

You're right! Every passion should be assumed before beeing trancended. Not doeing is unhealthy. Actually you always see sex-obsession even in hedonists who assume but doesn't trancend, as in puritans who trancend but doesn't assume!

This approach fits with every passion or created reality (affection, love for the world and so on)

Very good and synthetic explanation!

I know a little about St. Edith 'cause I did my doctoral thesis about her thought. I could add another significant aspect of her personalist approach on truth: a couple of times, when she was studying Aristoteles and Thomas Aquinas (for instance in Endliges und Ewiges Sein), when she didn't agree with them, she honestly says it. In a delicate way, she dares to write: perhaps I don't understand it very well but I think that aspect is wrong.

Her intellectual honesty is one of the things in her I liked most...
