Worthy Now..

The greatest challenge for most of us is to believe that we are worthy in this now regardless of all. Worthiness is such a quality that demands no pre-requisites yet as humans we have unknowingly, knowingly, unconsciously and/or consciously crafted, agreed to and committed to requirements that leads to “being worthy”.

 

This engagement to “worthiness’ pre-requisites” often resonates as follows:

I will be worthy if I find my purpose on earth

I will be worthy when I no more respond to external triggers

I will be worthy when I have healed from trauma

I will be worthy when I have mastered meditation

I will be worthy when I feel grounded enough

I will be worthy when I am no more triggered by my partner’s actions

I will be worthy if he fights to have me in his life

I will be worthy when I can hold space for myself

I will be worthy if everyone think that I am amazing writer

I will be worthy when my mother finally sees me for who I am

I will be worthy if I stay committed to my yoga practice

I will be worthy when I have my own place

I will be worthy when I am flowing through and trusting life

 

Do you resonate with these statements?

How strong is the resonance?

On a scale of 0-10, give a rating to each of these statements in view of your current life. (0 as this is not my current state and 10 is the highest state of how true and resonating this statement is for you in your life)

 

“Here's what is truly at the heart of Wholeheartedness:

Worthy now.

Not if.

Not when.

We are worthy of love and belonging now.

Right this minute.

As is.”

~Brené Brown

 

We live in a conditional world and most of us facilitators are working and walking to undo these conditions for ourselves while holding for our fellows to undo theirs.

There is fine line between seeking to better oneself as human and believing that one is not worthy until one reaches that peak of betterment.

We may want to deepen our commitment to ourselves, to our close ones, to our community, to our choices and decisions. We may want to transcend our limited beliefs, break the cycles of unhealthy patterns, heal from trauma and own our responsibility to our life.

All of the above are “ok”. They are focal points but none of the above determines our worthiness.

The prime reason why many of us struggle past our goals, our life failing to validate and celebrate ourselves, our lives is because we are in utter dislike with who we are right here right now; we are unable to see, feel and hear worthiness in ourselves right here right now.

 

“Just remember, we have to love that thing that we want to change.” ~Brené Brown

 

These words may seem counter-intuitive. If we seek to change ourselves then we have to love that thing that we are, gently learning not to attach our identify to behaviors, roles, events, habits, situations and circumstances.

Self -Shaming | Self Loathing | Self Spitting

Self Blaming | Self Disrespect

All these demotivate and belittle

Self love and self respect motivates, inspires and aspires self and the world 

 

You are worthy right here right now

There are no conditions to be being worthy

We are worthy right here right now

The body will catch us quick

The mind will disagree

 

But keep playing that song

“I am worthy right here right now. There is no power on earth that can invalidate my worth not even mine.” 

 

May we be brave enough to walk on this path

May we be gentle

May we be kind

May we be held gently and kindly

Dear Megha,
Thank you for sharing such a thought provoking piece. I liked the line, ''I am worthy right here right now. There is no power on earth that can invalidate my worth not even mine''. Indeed, we have to value ourselves and keep our faith on ourselves first.
Best regards,
anjana

I ask myself Am I worthy? What is worthy anyway?

The dictionary said: worthy - a person notable or important in a particular sphere or having or showing the qualities or abilities that merit recognition in a specified way.

after reading the meaning, still I ask myself Am I worthy? hmmmm yes I am :)

Thank you for sharing Megha :)

isn't it interesting that even the dictionary defines "worthy as an external quality" instead of an innate inborn and unquestionable beingness of human

in a world that has externalized worthiness, we will strive to reach a standard that will remain unattainable.

Yes, we are born worthy. Unfortunately many cultural norms teach us differently

I will say fear-based and scarcity beliefs led us to this point where we set standards for everything including human worth.

this is a path that we women have to walk, reclaiming our worth and knowing that no one and nothing can define us

Hello, Megha,

I love this so much! Women in general struggle of worthiness because of so many standards place before us in order to be deemed accepted. Thank you for sharing this post for self-reflection. I love Brene Brown!

We are worthy, dear. Please keep on posting!

Hi Megha, our worthiness is incomparable to anything, but yes at some points due to culture and society we are made to feel or look unworthy of anything at all. Thanks for shearing this beautiful thought its also a reminder to self worth.

Self esteem, the way a person feels about herself negatively or positively and we should not let others determine how we feel with ourselves. I think that is what World Pulse has taught me. We are not here to condemn but to exhort one another to achieve greater heights. When the world is condemning us for whatever reason, always know that we have a family here to encourage us to reach the skies.

Thanks.

Thank you sis, truly, lack of self confidence and self love is something that kills many people and they keep trying to be other than themselves. Self love reveals self worth. Thank you for sharing this beautiful piece.

indeed self love reveals self worth.

the more we allow ourselves to face our stories, heal, shift and transform, the more we start moving into our worth

Dear Megha,

Thank you so much. I take this away: “I am worthy right here right now. There is no power on earth that can invalidate my worth not even mine.” This is sufficient for me and I think for us all.
How lovely it all is; let's keep the inspiration and motivation going.
Light and love
Marie
