“Every situation… nay, every moment… is of infinite worth… for it is representative of a whole eternity.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
People are most often challenged with issues of self-worth. Self-negation is the most causative of our primal data because it is a remnant of the ego-driven involutionary cycle of individuated consciousness. We all carry the illusory history of what we are not… as we truthfully evolve into what we are as forms of one blissful consciousness.
The easiest access to total worth… as Goethe says… is the moment as a representative of a whole eternity. Life only ever happens and is experienced in the here and now. This eternal now is true reality as one blissful consciousness and therefore has all worth. If we are challenged with illusions of self-worth… self-negation and inadequacy… our foremost remedy is wakefulness within the eternal now.
This week… let us endeavor to be more wakeful within the momentary happenings of life. As has been aptly said… be here now. Always remember that within the eternal now of life… all worth is available because in truth there is only one blissful consciousness happening.
