You Are Worthy

YOU are worthy of love! You are not only worthy of it, it is native to what you truly are! You- specifically you– are cherished, adored, and celebrated! And, despite what you may believe or what you may think about yourself, you are deserving of that love!

Religious ideology often teaches that we must earn God’s favor or acceptance (“God” by whatever term) through action or belief. This is untrue. Unconditional love is just that: unconditional. But God’s love is not just unconditional in a general way, God is unconditionally loving even with full knowledge of all your personal failings and imperfections. Imagine the depths of love necessary to completely and fully love you even as you perform your darkest act- and only then would you even begin to just barely touch understanding the fullness of God’s love.

No matter what you have suffered, what you have endured, or what you have done- you personally are loved, cherished, adored, celebrated, and upheld. You are celebrated for being you!

Allow yourself to feel this, right now! Let go of all your self-judgments, all your pre-conceptions, all your stresses- and feel it, deep down within you. Let go, and allow yourself to feel and remember that you are profoundly, deeply loved! Though the human journey is long and filled with the obfuscation of physical life, your deepest being remembers. Your deepest being yearns for the love that you have never lost. Can you feel it, even if but as a precious glimmer?

When we know this about ourselves, when we know with confidence that we are loved and celebrated- really know it- how much better can we then express love in our world? How much better can we shine the light to each other when we know that the Source of all Life completely loves us, personally?

For indeed often as we seem to get lost in the fog of circumstance, it is by shining our light that the other person may remember the love that exists for them! It is by our kindness and compassion that the other person may be reminded of THE kindness and compassion that never ceases. We have the profound honor of having the opportunity to shine the light of love to each other in a place where we seem to have forgotten it. Many millions of beings yearn for this opportunity- you and I have it today.

So remember today, this very day, that you are worthy of the love of the Source of all Creation- and as you do so, shine it to those around you! Remind them that they, too, are worthy, no matter how messy life may seem! For as you shine the light of love to others and remind them of who they really are, you help facilitate the great plan of bringing the foundational Love of Being into this reality.

The Spiritual Message of Empowerment

The spiritual message is one of empowerment. This is because powerlessness is just a non-fundamental experience, while freedom and power are the enduring truths.

Spirituality is about moving towards what actually is. Since freedom and power are our true inalienable nature, true spirituality naturally moves towards them. But because we have fear, we resist our experience in a myriad of ways. We use our ideas and our will to set up many boundaries and to block our own experience. We even use ideas about spirituality to do this. We (seem to) lose the powerful truth as we assign it to the powerless form.

Can life itself be repressed? It can choose to express itself through a great variety of conditions and within a great variety of constraints, and those conditions and constraints can change, but life itself is totally free. Spirituality is about that true nature of life, about allowing it, and knowing it, and becoming it- not just about the nature of the forms or constraints that life expresses through. Spirit transcends form.

Thus no form can truly convey the message. And yet, as life seeks to express itself through its creations, it can strive to reflect its ineffable and inalienable qualities through them. Those qualities, among many others, are ultimate love, joy, peace, power, and freedom! And thus, the spiritual message is one of ultimate love, joy, peace, power, and freedom!

Goodness Can’t Help but Win

No matter what happens, life ends up using it for the good. There is no loss that is not eventually followed by the victory of life which becomes more through that loss. No matter the loss, failure, or destruction, there is always some good that comes into being afterward as a result. This is the nature of permanent life versus impermanent change.

Everything that happens within Beingness occurs for Beingness’ sake. There is no circumstance that can overcome Beingness, nor escape use in its evolution.

So while the churning of changing circumstance may seem to burn us, we can never be lost, and we can never truly fail. This means that we do not ever have to surrender to the feeling of defeat.

We Will Get There

Near Death Experiencers often describe that they sense everything being in perfect order. One may ask, how can this be, given all the apparent destruction and suffering in the world?

“Everything being in perfect order” does not mean that we are expressing love in the most optimal way, yet. We knowingly came into a very difficult constraint-set (the physical universe) to refine our ability to make love-based (rather than fear-based) choices within a challenging environment. We have a long way to go: each of us still often make choices based out of fear rather than love. But, because of the “divine law” that Source has in place, whether quickly or slowly (depending on our choices), we will get there. The process is unfolding successfully! But it’s a real system- real beings are making real free will choices- and that can get “apparently messy.” That messiness is a price that we were all willing to pay to participate in such an amazing endeavor of creative expansion!

To put it in religious terms: God’s plan cannot fail. We all choose every day how readily we will work with it, or not- but it cannot fail. The spiritual systems that are in place do, over time, encourage each of us to actually grow up towards love, to integrate our fears, and to fully express ourselves in a huge variety of conditions. As we do that, the plan of God is fulfilled. And, despite how circumstances may appear on the surface, we are doing that right now!

So take heart, have hope, and be encouraged! There is great opportunity and power in any given moment to choose love and compassion, even in the simplest of ways. As you do so, as a part of the One yourself, you actually facilitate the successful fulfillment of the great plan for this universe!
