There is a reason many of us are unable to see how much we are loved, how much the universe supports us, how we are surrounded by beauty. It is because we don’t think we deserve that much love, that much wonder. How could we? We are given every breath we take, we are given the freshness of a new morning, the taste of water, the stability of the earth beneath us. Why should all this love be ours, what could we ever do to deserve it, and what could we ever give back?
And so we think it isn’t real, or isn’t good enough, or we rush off into a million distractions without appreciating the gift of the moment. The truth is always with you. The universe needs you as much as you need it. You could not exist without sunlight, wind, water, earth; they could not exist without you. You are precious. You are irreplaceable. You are part of the mystery, the dance, the magic.
You do not need to do anything to prove yourself worthy–you already are. There is nothing you need to do or be. Notice the love around you, appreciate the gifts you are given and give thanks for the beauty without and within. Or don’t–they will still be there; truth will not change. We give because it opens our hearts to more joy, we appreciate the world because it creates more joy and beauty.
This is who you are: Loved. Precious. Infinite. The more you let yourself relax into that knowledge, the more peace you will find.
Let the beauty you are be what you do.
