When We Struggle with Feelings of Self-Worth

Happy Monday, Spiritual Warriors! Welcome to this week’s edition of The Source, and we’re exploring the concept of worthiness.

There are three basic directions that love can flow and three basic questions we can ask in every moment to determine the awakened status of our heart. They are:

  • Love of self—“In this moment, do I genuinely love myself?”
  • Love of another—“In this moment, how am I expressing my love to someone else?”
  • The ability to receive love—“In this moment, am I worthy of love?”

The Sacred Power of Your Awakened Heart holds the key to your divine magnificence. Your ability to see yourself in the hearts of others, feel worthy of love, and hold another person’s heart in your own, is what we learn as we walk the Fifth Divine Path.

When your heart is truly “awakened,” it is the most powerful, expansive, and transformational aspect of your being. In this divine state of bodhicitta, you can effortlessly give and receive love, flow gratitude, step beyond fear, awaken your purpose, and experience joy in each moment.

When storm clouds seem to overtake your emotions; when you find yourself feeling shame, jealousy, self-doubt, inadequacy, or loneliness; when the shield of pride you constantly hold up to protect yourself has become too heavy, your awakened heart is there to comfort and heal you.

Those moments of anger, arrogance, judgment, and condescension, where you brandish a sword of self-importance to demonstrate your strength, power, or confidence, your awakened heart knows this is simply a defensive ploy to attack the world and distract yourself from the tender hurt oozing from the center of your heart-puddle.

Your awakened heart knows all, sees all, feels all, and is capable of healing all the pain and suffering that rests inside you. And in its boundless wisdom, your awakened heart can deliver an ever-expanding wholeness to your every thought, word, and action.

The pathway to this higher state of existence is through living each moment from that sacred space of love to be divinely guided to fulfill your heart’s desires, summon the courage to take your life to the next level, and discover your meaning in life.

This week, be gentle with yourself, love yourself, forgive yourself, TRUST yourself, keep meditating, and I’ll see you in the gap. Namaste. -davidji
