Your Own Worth


Rumi says,  “You are more valuable than Heaven and Earth. You do not know your own worth.
Do not sell yourself at a ridiculous price – you who are so valuable in God’s eyes.”

Once you can glimpse your own worth, you are filled with humility -you, who are so valuable in the Mother’s eyes.
You carry Her caress in your heart.
How can you think yourself any less than the Gods and Goddesses think of you?
Your heart is so pure; it is only the ego that brings you unworthiness.
You are so infinitely precious to the Universal Mother.
You are the secret unity of the Mother and Her child.

It is you who chose the path, and you walk along by your own choice.
The time comes when the path does you, and then the ego begins to melt away and only life remains.
Listen to your Soul that wants to return to the Cosmic Soul while still in your body.
It is a love that wants to be known.
The ego cannot stand this and sends a great fog of illusion.

This path is the work of love and learning to become soft in the hands of the heart, even as you become a warrior on the brightest path.
Life is meant to be joyful.
Even when harshness touches you as it has touched us all, you know that behind the clouds of grief is the joy of being alive.

I love you with all my heart.
