When we forget that our true identity is Spirit the ramifications are enormous. The seed of inadequacy stems from overlooking this fact and the consequences of this emotion can range from greatly diminishing involvement with life, to becoming aggressive to prove oneself of value. Remember when we see ourselves as human alone, the tendency is to measure our value through behavior and comparison with others.
When we feel our spiritual nature, we are of value and significance, simply because we exist and are part of the creative force of the universe. From spiritual remembrance we are motivated by love, creativity, and learning, rather than fear and trying to prove that we are important. So sit with yourself and connect to the inner resonance of your Spirit.
