3-10. The more you attempt to measure your worth, the more illusions you will see. You are already Loved without reservation. Accept Love and you will be Healed.
The ego thrives on differentiation. To distinguish between seemingly opposed qualities is of the utmost importance to the ego, for it is an idea of distinction, a belief in separation and an illusion of difference where none exists, in Truth. You are already Loved, Completely. What need is there to attempt to determine the amount of this Love? Can you measure that which is infinite? Such a concept is nonsensical, preposterous and simply illogical. That which is infinite is by definition complete. It encompasses everything that has ever been, is now or will ever be. And you are Love to this extent, which is to say, Completely. Now, to the ego, that is what appears to be impossible, for the ego knows nothing of Love. Your ego wishes to differentiate you from others based on your accomplishments, your gains, or your value to society. But what are these measures, really, other than temporary agglomerations of reputedly important qualifications that have no concrete measurement? Certainly you can count your money, or recount your successes, or boast about your renown. But what are these forms of evaluation? Are they permanent? Are they eternal? Are they anything at all that you can carry with you after your time in this world has come to its end? No, certainly they are not. So how are you to measure your worth if you have no system of comparison that has any reflection in Truth? You can attempt this if you wish. You can vaingloriously repose in your castle, believing yourself to be somehow better, or more worthy, or more important, or perhaps even more loved simply because you have achieved great success. But is that truly how you wish to measure a worth that, if you were to look beyond the limitations of the ego and its bodily-centered awareness, would clearly be recognized as peripheral to anything that could ever be considered to be of genuine value. These are illusions that you are attempting to convert into meaningful and valid representations of a worth that you already possess. You are already unique. No other Child of God has existed, exists now, or will ever exist who will be exactly as you are. And so, because you are unique, you cannot validly measure your value, worth, importance or relevance against any other Child of God, for you are all completely different from each other and you are all irreplaceably valuable aspects of the Creation of God. Can you see how the concept of worth is a meaningless proposition when it is confronted with this most elegant of Truths? Worth is an attempt by your ego to present a reason why you should be considered to have more value that any other Child of God. Yet this is a strange concept when regarded from the eternal perspective of Love, for all of the Children of God are Loved, just as they are, for they will forever remain as they were Created, no matter how much they may stray away from God and from Love, trying in vain to create a world in which their bizarre requests for separation could ever be fulfilled. This is not the way of Peace, most precious Child of God. This is not the way to become Whole again - by attempting to divide yourself from eternity and to stand alone, in a world of your own creation, believing yourself to be wretchedly cast out of Heaven and destined to walk alone, unloved of God and no longer replete with the Glory of the Light of Love. This Light is still available to you. It has not altered over all of the countless millennia that have passed since your first attempted to dream of a world that could be at all representative of a separation from God that has never been Real. Still you remain, a blessed Child of God, unique in all possible ways except for one - the one way and the one reason that all of your mad dreams of isolation have forever been solely of your own creation. You are not worthy of the Love of God because of what you have done, or because of what you have accomplished, or how much you have loved, or how many you have - apparently - saved from their own devices. You are Loved because you are Love Itself. This is a simple concept but it remains forever antithetical to the ego, for the ego must dream of separation to continuously justify its own illusionary existence. Set these burdens down now, Child of God. They have never served you. They have but stood between you and the Light of Love, casting a long shadow that has served only to apparently obliterate the Light that forever illuminates the quiet stillness of your heart. What value do illusions have for you? Have they ever offered what you want? You may believe so. You may believe that illusions are preferable to the Peace that will Return when you accept that you are Loved, not for what you do, but for what you are. To become healed of these voluntarily elected wounds, you need only accept that you have committed a simple error. You have believed that your worth was measurable. You have believed that you had to, in some way, earn the Love of God through accomplishments, actions undertaken or riches gained, or that your worth can be given to you in some way by this world. Yet forever these concepts served you not in the least, for they have only blinded you to your innate value. No other Child of God is exactly the same as you. All are unique. Each is both indispensable and invaluable for they can all perceive this world just as they must, for just as long as they need, until they are ready to set down the mad dreams of the ego and accept healing and Peace in their place. Are you, as of yet, ready to See that you are Loved by God, Completely and Eternally? This healing is for you. It awaits but your simple surrender of all that you have attempted to use to distinguish yourself, to hold yourself up in the eyes of God as a special and - dare it be said - unique Child of God who is, somehow, more worthy than any other Child of God of being Loved Completely. This concept has served to separate you from Love, casting you into a darkness that you alone have created, isolating you from all of the other beautiful Souls who now dwell in this world, for your desire to be anything other than Love has served not to distinguish you - it has only wounded you. This need not continue. Healing is the outstretched Hand of God - it is ready to for you to accept. Release all desires to judge yourself and others and you will be ready to understand that the concept of worth is an illusion of the ego, for you are Loved and that is both all that you will ever be… and all that you will ever need.
