Over the past several weeks I have had the incredible opportunity to sit with some amazing people; each client has come to me with what appears to be a different crisis, problem, and situation. And yet they all seem to have the same core issue, value. As I listen, the following question comes up, “What is value? Where do you place your value?” Some of the answers that were given to me were the following: in their job, money, partners, kids, health, families, themselves, and success. All of these are very noble, honest, and wonderful ways in which we have been conditioned to place value. So what is value? Where is it? Value is worth. Most us put value on things outside of ourselves, and some of you reading this blog are probably saying well that is easy, value is inside. Great but when we say something is inside ourselves then we search the mind for the answer, or we go to the heart, or we are with our breath, or we try to meditate. So what does it mean to go inward? Everyone is talking about it, everyone has a technique and yet only a very few seem to find it.
Each of you is the face of God. Let me say that again, each of YOU is the FACE of GOD. I didn’t say some of you, or many of you, or a couple of you, I said each of you. Meaning everyone of you. Knowing that now, your prayer should be to know unconditional love, because that unconditional love is loving you now, and that is who you really are striving for. Can you receive that? If you can receive that fully, then you will understand the will of god which is love, love, love, with no conditions. Many us are playing a sick game of thinking. That’s right thinking. Your value is not found in thinking, your value is not found in judgments of yourself and others, of what you think are your mistakes, or thinking that your mistakes are who you are. Those are conditions. Can you live a life unconditionally loving? Can you receive that unconditional love?
Every space you are in is God, it is everywhere and in all places at once. In eastern thought they call it nothingness or a void. Does not matter what you call it, it is the same. It has no owner, identity, condition, levels, or judgment. IT IS AND IT WILL ALWAYS BE. God is not story, just like you. You are not a story, a condition, a mistake, a problem, a struggle, and there is nothing missing in you, because you are one with the ONE. So you are in it already. Turn your attention on your value. Your value is found in the observer. The observer is still. When a label comes, judgment, gossip of another or yourself, you have lost the observer through identity of a false creation.
Unconditional love is found before the story. Find out yourself, for you are the FACE OF GOD ITSELF.
