The quote was crafted in pink chalk on the schoolhouse chalkboard that covers one wall in my bathroom. One of my students had left it floating in the inky blackness. I stood and read each word slowly, carefully, just as it had been written. Whenever I have moments of questioning my relative value in the world I am Awakened. The Sacred has reached into my heart and blessed me with the Truth. Life is a gift!
What is our value and how do we measure our worth. Can it be quantified? Albert Einstein said, “ The true value of a human being can be found in the degree to which he has attained liberation from the self.” Profound statement from an evolutionary man, it’s also true!
For when you achieve liberation from the small self [ego] you no longer perceive yourself as a separate being, but as a correlative expression of the unifying field of consciousness. A part that is also the whole.
When you are liberated from the self all that is unreal dissolves and all that is real manifests. All illusion is absorbed and only the Truth remains. The Truth is that your a Divine Being. Self Realization is the purpose of your life.
At any moment you can experience your value by remembering your purpose. To become who you are, to express it in a meaningful way in the world…to this you were born! Your greatness lies in knowing and living this Truth. Your life is a gift to the world, and your gift to the world is your life.
