It’s not about deserve, it’s what you believe & I believe in love.
None of us are deserving on either end. If you find yourself in good fortune or the complete opposite ~ you didn’t deserve it.
Let’s break down the word ‘deserve’
The prefix ‘de’ means:
de = ‘down, down from, from, off; concerning" (see de), also, away, from among, down from," but also "down to the bottom.
So If we replace the prefix ‘de’ with its meaning ‘away from’ then add the root word service, you get something like this:
When you believe you DESERVE, you are turning away from you dharma, or purpose. It literally means the complete opposite of being of Service
The word defined in the Oxford language dictionary: verb
The word WORTHY stands out like a sore thumb here. We are all worthy of compassion, forgiveness and a beautiful light hearted life. And yet, how many of us are fully devoted to being of service, of putting aside what we want, putting down our desires and picking up humanity.
Yes, we need to fill our cup 1st, this is the confusing part ~ allowing yourself to receive what you need so that you can be of service. So, when you demand a break, saying ‘i deserve to sit for a moment’ your emotion, your anger, your hate ~ perpetuates a lack of compassion for yourself ~ a lack of love. However, when you simply sit to rest without demand, guilt or even shame, you are being of service. You open to receiving what you need regardless of what the world delineates, you hold space for others to see how to receive and most importantly you send out a massive vibration of peace, of abundance, of Love.
So it’s not a matter of what you or I or anyone deserves ~ punishment or reward ~ it’s a matter of what you believe.
If you BELIEVE others DESERVE punishment, be warned, that goes through you 1st ~ and a very simple law of cause and effect (aka karma) is invoked.
And.....seeing that we are all One, the person you deem unworthy of Love, is simply a mirror of a part of you, that you hate.
It’s about what you BELIEVE.
I believe in Love
I also believe there is a consequence for every action. So when I observe a person cultivating hate, my heart opens for them.
~ I have felt the kiss of karma and have begged for her mercy ~
So now, I ask for their consequence to be as gentle as they need, to wake up.
Look inside ~ What needs to shift with you today?
