Self Worth Matrix

Self-Esteem-Storage-by-Jamie-Flickr

I have been meditating on the issue of Self Worth of late (along with Duality) and, over the course of a series of guided work and meditation, I’ve come up with the idea of a personalized Self Worth Matrix.  For basically ALL of my life I have judged and assessed myself based on what “the World” tells me is good or successful.  The problem with this is that I have basically made decisions in my life that take me in an opposite direction.  Why would I continue to judge and assess myself by “the World”‘s standards when I have flouted its infinite wisdom in the first place?  Good question! 🙂

So I came up with topics, issues, and tasks that are authentic and have meaning to me:

1. Help Someone

2. Do Something Creative.

3. Decide and Act Intuitively (based on Divine guidance/Intuition).

4. Connect Spiritually (prayer, meditation, grounding, healing, open-hearted connection to God).

5. Communicate Love (to another person).

6. Do a “menial” task that furthers my dreams/calling.

I then created check boxes next to these items.  I intend to do each of them at least once each day, however this is not some sort of task to add yet another checklist … this is a way to re-wire and re-program my brain.  This is a way to generate validation, good will, kudos, and “back-slapping” for myself on the things that have meaning and are important to me … where I can tune out that negative Inner Voice and drown it out with affirmation.  No matter WHAT that Inner Voice says to me (or what anyone else has to say as well!) I can respond with,

“Nope, today I have done every, single thing that has meaning to me … today has been a great and productive day!  Awesome job!!”

It is my belief that in doing this, over time, the negative Inner Voice (based on social programming and other people’s “Shoulds” and “Shouldn’ts”) will be changed to an affirming, positive Inner Voice based on these domains that have value for me.

Give it a try … what is YOUR personalized Self Worth Matrix?  Remember, it’s not about “making yourself do something” … it’s about finding a way to generate Self Worth for what is important to you.  You WANT this list to be comprised of things that make you feel good.

Religion4All is an idea: that every human being (no matter their race, religion, sexuality, social status, lifestyle, or any other possible factor) is LOVED by God; just … as … they are.

We all are loved by God, and NO religion or person has a monopoly on it. Every single person on this planet is loved equally by God … SO many are cut off from God because they are told they don’t belong. God loves everyone … we ALL are beautiful creations … we don’t need to cringe when we hear the words “God”, or “religion”, or their judgments … God LOVES us all!

There is no requirement to change in order to be LOVED by God, or to LOVE God. God is LOVE, and LOVE is God … period. There is no one who God loves more than anyone else … there are only those who choose to LOVE more … to love God more, and consequently then to love each other more. In doing so, we grow closer to God … and know God.

By opening our hearts, and minds to God (free of boundaries like religion, or social trends); by LOVING God … we are exactly where we are meant to be. If we maintain that openness, never allowing any person or event to make us close our hearts, we will be guided by God to be who we are meant to be.

In that space of openness we can then live a life of LOVE, and be guided to where we are meant to be … forever in LOVE.
