Loving Yourself and Others.                      

Loving yourself and others.

  • Would you tell someone that they look terrible?
  • Do you routinely tell people that they ought to dress differently, live somewhere else, or eat different foods?
  • Can you imagine telling a stranger that they ought to have achieved more than they have?

Have you ever (or recently) done any of these things to yourself?

Most spiritual-religious traditions advocate loving God, loving your neighbor, and loving yourself.

I think it’s a good idea, too.

So, love yourself some this week…

With love,

Rabbi Brian

The 77% Weekly

The 77% Weekly: The Religion-Outside-The-Box Newsletter
helps people find and be with (the) God (of their understanding) 40 out of 52 weeks a year.

Why 77%?
Two reasons:
1) 40/52 = 0.76923 and it is sent every Monday except the last of each month.
2) In school 77% was a passing grade and ROTB wants to remind you that life isn’t graded, it’s pass/fail.

Religion-Outside-The-Box is a donation-supported,
non-denominational, internet-based, 501c3-tax exempt religious congregation.

Few problems are solved by an email your in-box.

This is an exception.

40 curiosity-satisfying, soul-nuturing messages from rB
Plus $130-savings on patience

Wonderful! You did it. Look for an email soon! (Unless you want to work on your patience, of course.)
