Question: How can we feel our own worth and not be bothered about other people’s opinions of us?

When you realise God, He will not ask you, “What did he think of you?” or “What did she think of you?” God will immediately ask you, “What did you think of yourself?” or “What did you think of Me?” God will not ask you what others thought of you. As soon as you stand in front of God, He is not going to give you a pass-mark according to others’ opinions of you. He is not going to look to see whether others appreciated or admired you. No, He is the boss; He doesn’t need others’ recommendations.

You are to God what you actually are: what you think of yourself and what you think of God in yourself. Your assessment is your own value. God doesn’t want us to waste a single minute worrying about what others think of us. Your life is God’s Life. God’s Life and your life are inseparable and God doesn’t need the opinion of the world to assess what you are doing. If you are praying and meditating, you are an excellent seeker. Your action is your certificate; your action is everything in God’s Eye.

You have to feel that you need God and that you have God. You are not aware of the fact that the thing that you want and need in order to discover your worth is already there. God is already there, but you don’t see Him. You are an instrument of God; His Capacity, His Vision, His Reality are there and He wants to manifest through you.

But how can you be conscious of it? You can become conscious through your dedicated, soulful aspiration and service. If you pray and meditate you will become aware of God’s presence in your life, and you will see that you are really worthy of God’s Love. Because of your prayer and meditation, God will make you conscious of His activities; and you will see that He is manifesting His Divinity in and through you. When you are conscious of this, who else but you can be worthy
