(Author of The Twelve Gifts from the Garden) Charlene Costanzo wishes you could see and believe how worthy you truly are.
“The world needs a sense of worth, and it will achieve it only by its people feeling that they are worthwhile.” – Fred Rogers
I think Fred Rogers got it right. Do you?
I believe that on the highest and the deepest levels, creation knows its goodness, and the soul knows its worth. But the vision of our ordinary consciousness is limited, sometimes clouded by wounds and worries, so we often don’t recognize our true worth.
Today, for the world’s sense of worth and our own, let’s aim to treat everyone we encounter with kindness, sincere caring, and dignity. This will nourish our sense of worth and show others their worthiness. Whatever you choose to do, please also notice anything that stirs your wonder and appreciative awe.
Little by little, we shall see from that place where the soul knows true worth.
Let’s especially help all children to know their worth and worthiness.
THE NINTH GIFT IS REVERENCE.
May you appreciate the wonder that you are
and the miracle of all creation.
