How do we know if we are good, smart, lovable, or successful? Too often people rely on external measures to determine their value. Teachers evaluate our intelligence, parents affect whether we receive loving responses to our character at an early age, and our culture defines for us what is successful.
But what if a teacher’s measures are limited and narrow minded, or a parent has trauma that blocks their ability to express love, or a ruling society is a Nazi regime? Can external measures be trusted?
My guides say, “Be the one who listens fully to Spirit.” We all have a deep core of Spirit within us that is the true barometer. Once I was told to put on my horse blinders and walk my path. Don’t get confused by the opinions of others.
