Let Yourself Be Worthy

“The least of things with a meaning is worth more in life than the greatest of things without it.” – Carl Jung

Pretend I’m an enlightened Yogi-Zen Master sitting high on a jagged, wind-blasted, unforgiving mountain. You’ve traveled through hell and brimstone to reach the top. The path was filled with a plethora of trials and tribulations.

You’re now exhausted, covered in sweat, and seeking only one thing: wisdom. Imagine me illuminated, meditating, glowing like a fractal-Buddha. My wrinkles, my long gray beard and my wise eyes staring down the improbable universe that surrounds us.

You are taken aback, astonished by my vibrant, thunderously quiet energy. You’ve come for answers. And though you’re skeptical, your curiosity trumps your doubt. The stories you’ve heard about me could no longer be ignored.

And so you ascended the mountain, and now you’re standing in front of me, nearly out of breath, and you ask:

“Oh wise master, how do I conquer fear, guilt, shame, and attachment?

I look down at you from my precarious stone perch, eyes blazing with thousand-year-old wisdom. Moments go by without a word. The silence is deafening. Finally you can take it no longer,

“What,” you plead, “what is the answer?”

I open my mouth as if to speak. More moments go by. Seconds pass as if in infinities. Then, finally, I say only four words: Let yourself be worthy.

That’s right! You want to conquer fear, guilt, shame, attachment? Let yourself be worthy. You want to break mental paradigms and stretch comfort zones? Let yourself be worthy.

You want to think outside of boxes and hijack evolution into revealing its secrets? Let yourself be worthy. You want to discover love and recondition preconditions? Let yourself be worthy.

You want to usurp thrones, burn down high-horses, and change the world? Let yourself be worthy. The irony is that you just climbed a MOUNTAIN! That very act was an act of self-worth. I mean, the very act of climbing that mountain was an act of conquering fear, and letting go of guilt, shame, and attachment.

You had the answer within you all along.

You let yourself be worthy of climbing that mountain, only to find that the journey WAS/IS the thing. My answer “let yourself be worthy” is the answer to almost any “how to” question one could ask.

All too often we live slow, inert, humdrum lives, grinding our way through a nine-to-five day, oblivious to what lies outside our comfort zones. We are mostly ignorant to what looms outside the almighty “box” of the status quo.

We tend to be consumed by our over-consumption. We’re more inclined to decline into the quotidian stagnation of our habits, than to rise up and “seize the day.” That is, unless we allow ourselves to be worthy.

The beauty of it is that nobody else gets to dictate our own worth. We may give into people’s opinions on the matter, but when it really comes down to it, we are the ones who allow ourselves to be worthy or not. Every single one of us has the capacity to “right the ship.”

Every single one of us has the potential to “change the world.” We just have to allow ourselves to do it.

We have to give ourselves permission to become game-changers. Otherwise, we’ll just keep playing the same old boring games. We are, each of us, valuable. We are, each of us, precious contributors.

But it is up to each of us alone to wrestle whatever inner-demon needs to be wrestled, in order to clear the path for our potential to shine. Fear, guilt, shame, grief, lies, illusions, ego-attachment; all these things dissolve in the face of self-worth.

Embrace your fear and insecurities. Embrace your anger and your doubts. Dance them into something worthwhile. Transform the fear into courage by letting yourself be worthy. Transform the anger into passion by letting yourself be worthy. Dance with the fire. If it burns you to ashes, rise like a phoenix. Life is too short to live it second-guessing your authenticity.

Your unique gift to the world simply cannot be given if you’re worried about the nature of the gift. You are here to shake things up and create something that nobody else can. Stop holding yourself back.

Let your fingerprints glimmer under the black light of everything you love. Seize your life by seizing the day by seizing the moment. Fall in love with yourself all over again. Be fierce. Be brilliant. Be extraordinary. But first, let yourself be worthy.
