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.
Our self-worth is not the sum of what we have done or not, said or not, felt, or anything related to our past. Nor will it be determined by our future actions, words, thoughts and so on.
We are not what the mind dictates we are or we are worth, our self-worth is beyond the mind. Deep in our heart, we are always worthy and always will be, nothing can ever alter that.
If we start from that position of always being worthy, there is less to prove, well nothing to prove, nothing to act out, not feelings of inferiority or lack, no need for comparisons with others, we can simply be our authentic real self.
It starts with a simple choice, accept that we are worthy or listen to the noise of our minds.
