What Value Do YOU Place On The Self? – by Ariel

.

Value may be defined as the important and lasting beliefs held by society, about what is good and desirable – what has relative worth, merit or importance. These societal values have throughout history, had a major impact on people’s attitudes and behaviour. Therefore it raises the questions “what value do we place on the self and others? Is our true value as a human being really determined by how society sees us?”

Is Your Value Only On Your Business Card? – by Shuddhaanandaa Brahmachari

There are two worlds, one physical and the other ethereal or astral! As such there is not much difference between the two. In this world your education, success, social status, money, these create your identity shown on your business card. In the after-world they have no value, it is your character, spiritual attainment, love, compassion and deepest devotion for the Divine that decides who will be your companion there! It is the light of your soul that is of all value!

Attitude of Gratitude – by Annette

Since the theme for the feature articles of our July 2015 issue of the magazine is VALUE it got me to thinking about the value of our lives, or rather, how we place value on our lives and for me that means gratitude. In other words, when we have gratitude for something, anything, it then has value to us.  I am applying this thought process to our lives here but you can actually use the same logic when considering everything from vehicles to food to the thoughts, words and deeds of others; gratitude will show us value and that which we value, we are grateful for.

If You Don’t Value Yourself…Nobody Else Will – by Tanya

My Philosopher Dad always used to tell me, “If you don’t value yourself, nobody else will!”.  It didn’t really resonate with me when I heard it the first time… but I was only 20 then.
.
He said it while I was considering lowering my commission on a real estate listing.
.
My Dad and I worked together as a real estate sales team in the 80’s when mortgage interest rates were averaging 20% and the real estate market was lean and mean — in more ways than one!

Value Yourself – by Sara Jane

You are very special, don’t doubt it because very one is special; no one is more or less special than anyone else. You were also born perfect, with all the gifts, talents and strengths that you require for this life and for your life purpose, whatever that may be. It does not matter what your chosen role is for this life, it is essential within the big picture of life. Think of a mechanism and all the cogs that make up that mechanism, every cog however is essential and if the smallest cog stops working it affects the smooth running of the whole mechanism.

What’s Value Worth? – by Gerard

.
As a fifteen year old boy I looked around and thought, “the world’s a crazy place to live”. People did stupid things, governments were corrupt, nations were selfish and ideologies were creepy. War was all over the globe and we lived in fear for the Soviets and nuclear attacks. The Rote Armee Fraction, the Brigate Rosse, the Basques and the IRA spread terrorism over Europe. I was confident things would get better over time. Peace would spread, equality would grow and people would become wiser; love would rule the world.

A Culture of Spending – by Linda Lang

.
A Culture of Spending,
that’s the headline in the newspaper a few days back. It was written about government spending but one doesn’t have to look too far to realize just how widespread that culture has become.  Just look at the plethora of “Increase Your Prosperity” packages being marketed to you.

Value This!!!! – by Marie Pollnow


In the past few years value has been significant for me.  I say this in the context of “my value.”  How do I value myself and how do other people value me?  What is my inner compass and what do I do when I value myself?  How do others treat me?  Good value has not always come easily to me since for as long as I can remember I was told how to look, learn, act, feel and be.  I learned these lessons in church, from my parents, television, school, nuns, teachers, coaches and relatives. My value as painted by others wasn’t pretty except for my mother’s unfettered love, devotion and encouragement.  Believe it or not having red hair in a small town elementary school was no easy task.  My mother would always comfort me when I came home from school crying as the kids called me red-headed woodpecker, Annie, Red Headed Ridinghood and Pipi Longstocking.  Once someone put gum in my long flowing red hair.  Another time a boy spit in it–that was the worst.

Act IV of My Life – by Roseann

.

Each time I think “nothing has changed since I turned my life to working with Spirit”, spirit shows me how everything has changed because I now see everything from a different perspective.
I now see life as a play and wonder how the next act will “Play” out. Are we having fun yet? What could be the pay off for living life as we planned it? The payoff must be grand for our higher selves to put us in these creations. Some of us have designed lives filled with amazing joy. Yet, others have created lives filled with hardship after hardship. The thing is we have all experienced many diversities in each the many incarnations we chose to be a part. No matter what a life looks like from the outside, the joys and hardships are all part of everyone’s life. It shows up in unique ways because here on earth we have taken on unique personalities. When we cross, we realize we are experiencing for each other as we are all one.

Soul Value – by Paul

Paul E. Martin: Professional Interspecies Communicator
       ….. the Animals and Plants Voice of Love
.
.
What is of value that you would consider it relevant? Value in material terms connotes an agreement or attachment. Value also relates to principles and lifestyle. Then what is real value? To arrive at the answer, it would seem necessary to relate to one’s truth.
.
.
A comment about truth here requires noticing where one is located physically and spiritually. Location is about physical external space of the body and internal space where the mind resides. The mind can do both strange and wonderful things. The feelings of the heart and soul follow the activity of the mind. After all, it is in thinking that one makes choices of what stays and what goes. Therein lies the value.

All this talk about change – by Lykke

.
It has been going on for several years, and still, there is a lot of talk about change. Also right now. In several intuitive horoscopes for June, I have heard that NOW, is the time to really create a change.
.
This NOW may seem fairly constant, and just get me to conclude that we live in a time of change, but anyway.
.
All these talks have an impact on me, because I really dont wanna miss any opportunities. Though I love my life, I allways wanna make it even better if possible.
.
Every time I take in statements like this, they do something about me. So yesterday I got this urge to do something completely new. After REALLY, to follow what I have a passion for, after what I deserve. Ithis mood, I can be so fired up and excited, that I’m ready to “sacrifice” everything, say no to both my job and my volunteer work, so I can go for something intirely new. Create the life that really is me. I am a brave soul, so I would not hesitate to do this. If not….

Value Yourself – by Holland Haiis

.
What do you value most? As I take a moment to think about what I value most in my life, the answer is simple, relationships.  But, I also question whether this was always my truth. Reflecting on relationships from the past gives an understanding as to how far I have come. Through time it becomes easy to take a relationship for granted, and it is also easy to take yourself for granted. Let’s face it, who is always there in a pinch? You are.

Value: Understanding through Self Love – by Danielle Hughes

Love is the key. To truly understand the value of something or someone, we must first look to ourselves. Do you value your time, efforts, love? Do you value your ideas and opinions? To truly understand the value of other things and people, we must first learn to value ourselves.
.
True self value springs from the foundation of love.  Loving yourself first is the only way to feel the value of another without constraints. Self love is sometimes the hardest love to accept, we are often our own greatest critic. All of our own actions are viewed through a critical lens, when left unchecked this lens widens and becomes the point from which we view all else in the world.

Having FUN with VALUE – By Lee Pryke

.
Expanding my vocabulary is always fun for me, and adds great value to my writing. We used to pick a new word from the dictionary when I was in University, and find ways to use it every day for a week. It has been several years since I played this game, so today I decided to play with the theme word VALUE.  I encourage you to play too. I decided to see what each letter of the word value could mean. A great source to find words is adjectivesstarting.com

When It’s NOT What It Is – by Mary K

.
We all live in hope – a desire accompanied by expectation of or belief in fulfillment. Without hope, creation ends, leaving no reason to draw another breath. But with hope, we shoot rockets of desire out into the Universe and when we hold steady that expectation of fulfillment we soon find ourselves in the midst of it. So you see, hope is a prime piece of our creating ability. The very fact that you are, right this very minute, drawing another breath and reading this, is a huge indicator that you’ve got hope!

Why do We Need Eternal Hope – by Anne DeButte

.
“Hope springs eternal in the human breast;
Man never Is, but always To be blest.
The soul, uneasy, and confin’d from home,
Rests and expatiates in a life to come.”
Alexandre Pope
.
Life has many ups and downs but what keeps us going is hope. It is our resilience, that invisible thread that pulls us along. Buoys us up and keeps us afloat. Take away our hope and we are lost. A part of us dies. “Why continue on” we think? Hope brings in the potential, the possibilities, new beginnings, new learning, newborn ideas, new pathways to follow or new journeys to pursue. amazing-hope-The hope that tomorrow our dreams will come true, our “ship will come in”. Hope lifts us like a balloon and can make our bleak situation manageable as long as we have hope. We treasure it and bring it out for those moments of need. We can polish it off and let it shine bright. We can follow where it leads us. To all those possibilities we wouldn’t otherwise get to see.

The Inner Spark – by Brian Escobar

.
There are those things in life which we just feel so inclined to do, regardless of being able to see the light at the end of that tunnel, but nonetheless we persevere and keep chipping away at the marble until the angel is freed. People will ask why, and sometimes so will we, but often the heart knows before the mind can fully understand.
