Whatever has happened in our life situation, that is the day to day mind activity that we obsess about, like the past, future etc, is completely on the surface and in the mind, deep at the bottom of the lake as in deep within us, where our soul is, there is peace and calm always. There may be a storm on the surface, but that is not the real world.
We are not our life events, we are not our actions, not our achievements, we are not the past or the future.
We are the beautiful, kind and loving human soul that we will always be, that is there deep inside us.
True worth is beyond the mind, our life situation and the exterior world, it is within and we are always worthy.
We are so conditioned to be driven by the outcome or result.
Our society is based on winners and losers, achievements and other things that can be easily measured by increases, like a bigger salary, a bigger house, a bigger job and so on.
The obsession with productivity, action and results is not enriching our lives it is killing our souls instead.
It is the biggest swizz of more modern history and the industrial age. We have allowed our worth to be linked to what we do or have. It’s great for keeping us as cogs in the machine, slaves to work, slaves to a lifestyle, slaves to debt, slaves to the mind.
An alternative is to accept that we are born worthy and will die worthy no matter what we achieve or have, thus freeing us from the conditioning and the mind to allow our souls to be free.
We can still do whatever we want, but we do not let it define or enslave us.
