Every human being is worthy or of value because they are Alive. What they go on to achieve or accumulate does not increase or decrease that worth. Living a life filled with enriching experiences, open-mindedness and curiosity allows a person to better realize who they are and how they impact the world around them. This realization makes life more worthwhile to that person but his/her worth remains the same. Society would disagree and continues to cause separation and discourse as a result. Youth, beauty, intellectual intelligence, money, job position, ambition, possessions and social status are some of the ear markers that society uses to determine a person's value.
It takes a strong sense of Self to not be caught up in this empty illusion.
We tell our children that they are special and unique but really we should emphasize that every child is worthy and equal. Yes our children have unique and special ways in which they express their creativity and will grow up and fulfill their dreams and desires but they are no more important or special then any other child.
We are equally worthy and interconnected. When we are able to take this concept from our mind and implant it in our hearts, a sense of relief, freedom and lightness will be unleashed. We don't have to proof ourselves to anyone. We are free to choose the way we want to live our lives with the understanding that we are not an island. Our chooses that bring peace or chaos to our lives affect the lives of those around us.
If we choose to feed into the fears, hatred and victim mentality of the world, then we add fuel to the fire. We are all worthy, we are all connected and we are all equal. Live your life following your inner guidance rather than from the desires of others so that you come to know who you really are and what gifts you have come to bring to this ailing world. We all have something to offer but more important we Are Worthy.
