Are you worthy?
There is an antiquated equation locked away in our mind that is uniquely our own. Through trial and error and observation of ourselves and others we have come up with our very own way of judging worthiness. For instance, if we laid around on our butt for a week and did nothing but eat bon bons and watch sitcoms, we wouldn’t expect to reap huge rewards for that. On the other hand, when we put in twenty hour days of work and deprive ourselves of anything remotely like fun, we expect that we will be rewarded. But what happens when we put in the time and the effort and no reward is forthcoming? What happens when the person who does little or nothing is rewarded and we are not? We scream that life is unfair but is it?

By the time that we are sixteen years old, through a system of rewards and punishments, we have formulated our definition of worthiness and for most people it remains unchanged for the rest of their lives. The big secret is that the equation is useless. You and I can open the door wide to receiving so much more but first we must understand that any and all receiving comes from a positive place. No, this isn’t a think positive and your bills disappear message! This is a stop being negative and expecting positive results message! For example, the person that sacrifices their health, happiness and well being for their spouse and children expects a reward. It doesn’t happen because they can’t invest in a negative and get a positive. The person who sacrifices some pleasures but NOT their health, happiness and well being is rewarded all along the way because they love themselves. They take a loving, positive approach to their life.

A positive approach to life starts with love. It can start no where else. Ask yourself “Am I in love with my life right now?” It is this answer that opens or closes the door to everything you want. The lilies in the field and the birds on the wing are adorned and cared for because they are in love with life. All that has ever been required of us is that we be grateful for and in love with our life. Upon that a GREAT life is given. You are worthy not because of any equation but because you love your life, period.
