I have come to understand that most of our suffering arises from looking to others for their approval, affirmation, and proof that we matter.
This is learned, socially and culturally sanctioned. This is not in any way true. Not at all.
When we learn to go within, to understand that we are worthy because the very core of us is aligned at all times with “the energy that creates worlds” (Abraham), we will no longer search outside ourselves for meaning.
True belonging is our birthright; it was ours before we came here and it is ours for all eternity.
