I love myself above all things.
I do my learning because of this selfish love. I must know my station of servitude, in order to behave with due respect to the Manifestation of God and to all other human beings. Otherwise, I cannot obtain the good pleasure of God, which is most beneficial to my eternal life.
Every day, I keep on learning to gain more knowledge about the love and justice of God. The more I gain this knowledge, the more I will enjoy the freedom in observing the divine laws and principles.
God loves me so much to bestow on me the rational sense that distinguishes me from all other creatures. Why don’t I love me enough in preserving this power of understanding in His Service?
I am thankful to God for teaching me how to love myself.

Religion is the light of the world, and the progress, achievement, and happiness of man result from obedience to the laws set down in the holy Books. Briefly, it is demonstrable that in this life, both outwardly and inwardly the mightiest of structures, the most solidly established, the most enduring, standing guard over the world, assuring both the spiritual and the material perfections of mankind, and protecting the happiness and the civilization of society — is religion.
(Abdu’l-Baha, The Secret of Divine Civilization, p. 71)
Obedience to God
Highest level of freedom
