I am worthy of love simply because I exist :)



“As I looked at the great tapestry that was the accumulation of my life up to that point, I was able to identify exactly what had brought me to where I was today.

Just look at my life path! Why, oh why, have I always been so harsh with myself? Why was I always beating myself up? Why was I always forsaking myself? Why did I never stand up for myself and show the world the beauty of my own soul?

Why was I always suppressing my own intelligence and creativity to please others? I betrayed myself every time I said “yes” when I meant “no”! Why have I violated myself by always needing to seek approval from others just to be myself? Why haven’t I followed my own beautiful heart and spoken my own truth?

Why don’t we realize this when we’re in our physical bodies? How come I never knew that we’re not supposed to be so tough on ourselves?

I still felt myself completely enveloped in a sea of unconditional love and acceptance. I was able to look at myself with fresh eyes, and I saw that I was a beautiful being of the Universe. I understood that just the fact that I existed made me worthy of this tender regard rather than judgment. I didn’t need to do anything specific; I deserved to be loved simply because I existed, nothing more and nothing less.”

I’am going to be happy – no matter what

pexels-laughing child indian - Surajith S.


“We are really advocates of just getting as happy as you can be — which takes care of everything.

Even if you don’t have reason to be happy — make it up. Fantasize it.

Make a decision that you’re going to be happy one way or another — no matter what.

No matter what, I’m going to be happy! If I have to ignore everybody;

if I have to never watch television again;

if I have to never pick up a newspaper again, I’m going to be happy.

If I never have to see that person’s face again, I’m going to be happy.

If I have to see that person’s face, I’m going to find something to see in that person’s face that makes me happy.

I’m going to be happy.

I’m going to be happy.

I’m going to be happy.”

– Abraham Hicks

(the above words by Abraham have been shared from the blog joypassiondesire)


Off course, the “inner work” is to reach a point wherein no matter what your physical reality is, you feel happy but if you are not able to feel happy while in your current physical reality, then are you supposed to tolerate your negative emotions till you wither away?

No! You can get some distance between that which pains you and you. In that time and space that you get, you can sharpen your focus till the time you are able to focus on any topic (even if it was painful to you earlier) and find something in it to feel better about it (it can be but need not be enthusiastically happy…. just feeling better is awesome too while on your path to feeling good about it) i.e. you achieve stability in your good feeling thoughts. As you do that, you reconnect to your invincibility, to your freedom. The power which creates worlds flows through you. In fact, it is you.

Yes, sometimes, because of the way we are focused on a situation, we cannot feel positive emotion. There is nothing wrong in it. We are human and we need to be easy on ourselves. Negative emotion always tells us that we have grown but have not gone ahead with our growth. Whenever we feel upto it, we can change the way we are focused on it and thereby taste true freedom – i.e. free to feel whatever emotion we want to feel irrespective of what is happening around us. Sometimes, choosing to distance oneself from what is painful helps in reaching this place of strength and therefore, is the path of least resistance (it need not be but sometimes, it is and only you know that by the way you feel about it). From this place of strength, we are of value to ourselves and to anyone else we may want to be of value to.

You are special

A young girl looking at camera - Christopher Campbell

“You aren’t worthless like they made you feel. You aren’t so broken that you could never heal. You aren’t stupid like they made you think. Listen as I say this, you are stronger than you believe, and smarter than you seem. You are special, you are something else, be proud to be yourself.”

The amazing human body

This is so empowering….


Seeing with the brain

An article on the blog –

Vision consists of your eyes detecting light and converting it to electro-chemical impulses in neurons which are then given meaning by your brain.   Hence, the real “seeing” occurs in the brain with the interpretation of the impulses. For this reason, as long as input from the surrounding world can be delivered to the brain, through any means, for example taste or touch, and the brain can learn to make sense of it, seeing can take place. Substituting one sense for another has allowed people to successfully see the world without vision.

In his book, Incognito: The Secret Lives of the Brain, David Eagleman tells of Paul Bach-y-Rita, a neuroscientist at the University of Wisconsin, who, in the 1960’s, developed a device which presented a tactile display to blind people in effect allowing them to see. The blind subjects had a video camera attached to their foreheads. The information from the video camera was converted into tiny vibrations on their backs. Of course, at first, they were bumping into things, and it was nothing like vision. However, after wearing these visual-tactile substitution glasses for a week and learning to correctly translate the vibrations into movement instruction, they became quite skilled.

But, there is more. Eagleman writes:

The stunning part is that they actually began to perceive the tactile input – to see with it. After enough practice, the tactile input becomes more than a cognitive puzzle that needs translation; it becomes a direct sensation.

If it seems strange that nerve signals coming from the back can represent vision, bear in mind that your own sense of vision is carried by nothing but millions of nerve signals that just happen to travel along different cables. Your brain is encased in absolute blackness in the vault of your skull. It doesn’t see anything. All it knows are these little signals and nothing else. And yet you perceive the world in shades of brightness and colors. Your brain is in the dark but your mind constructs the light.

To the brain, it does not matter where those pulses come from – the eyes, the ears, or somewhere else entirely. As long as they consistently correlate with your own movements as you push, thump, and kick things, your brain can construct the direct perception we call vision.

He tells the story of Eric Weihenmayer, an extreme rock climber, who is blind, but has learned to see with his tongue. In 2001, he became the first blind person to climb Mount Everest. While climbing, Eric uses something called a BrainPort which takes video input and translates it into patterns of electrical pulses onto a grid of over 600 electrodes in his mouth. This allows Eric to discern qualities usually associated with vision such as distance, shape, direction of movement and size.

Demonstrating the concept in reverse, Eagleman tells the story of Mike May who was blinded by a chemical explosion at the age of three. Forty-three years later his vision was restored by a new surgical development. The bandages were removed, and Mike was to look upon the faces of his children for the first time. What was supposed to be a heart warming scene, was not. Although his eyes were working perfectly, Mike did not have vision because his brain could not make sense of the torrent of input from his eyes. With learning, over time, Mike came to have the experience of sight.

Vision is learned. Seeing is in the brain.

You are ever-expanding into more

Butterfly - Patti Black

“When she transformed into a butterfly, the caterpillars spoke not of her beauty but of her weirdness. They wanted her to change back into what she always had been.

But she had wings.”

– Dean Jackson


You are ever-expanding into more and when you go along with your expansion, you feel joy. Others who are not going along with their expansion may not feel that joy but that does not mean that you can’t feel that happiness. Yes, relationships are important to us but we have our own individual journeys. As you continue feeling that joy predominantly and consistently , you allow the law of attraction to match you up more with people who are also feeling that joy and therefore, find it easy to look at you and feel more of that joy. Isn’t that what you would want? You are ever-expanding into more and as you go along with your expansion, you not only feel good, you also attract more of that makes you further feel good. It’s a vicious cycle of well-being 🙂

Selfish enough to feel good about yourself

Lady with white flowers - Neill Kumar

“I will never let myself down, treat myself like a doormat, or make myself small so others can feel big. I have learned that this is the biggest gift that I give, not only to myself, but also to the planet, because I paint others with the same brush as I use on myself.”

– Anita Moorjani


When you are selfish enough to feel good about yourself on your own, you are able to feel good about others too. When you are at a place of ease within yourself, it’s easier to look at others with kindness and love. Of course my suggestion would be don’t do it for others, do it because it feels so good to feel good about yourself and from that place of strength, can you imagine the value you would bring to yourself and to anyone else you would want to be of value to?
