Value Added

Mona_Lisa,_by_Leonardo_da_VinciBy design, you’re special. It doesn’t matter where you were born, what you do or your perspective; you are valuable on the planet. You are truly awesome…it’s an exciting thought!

The first thing an oppressive mind does is to have you doubt your value; convince you that you’re nothing. It is the initial step to a system that demeans your person over time. The devaluation of the soul is an age long strategy that cripples the victim to near inactivity.

A baby’s value is generally not doubted, long before they do any ‘meaningful’ work. That’s our design and it doesn’t change in adulthood. The soul is valuable, even before action.

I know this contradicts the idea that what we do confirms our value. Well, I’ve noticed that people generally produce more and take more risks when their self worth is secured before work is done.

Your presence is value. Your essence solves a problem. Like a skillful artist, it’s important to sharpen your edge.  However, it’s deeply rewarding when you do it from a point of confirmed worth. A royal touch makes any element royal, not the other way round.
