Excerpt About Value
Not Valuing Our EssenceThere is another more universal and general reason why we don’t value our Essence. We talk here about how much of your suffering, how much of your conditioning resulted from the lack of love in your environment. Your environment wasn’t supportive, wasn’t loving, did not respond to you appropriately according to your needs, did not see your value. That is true. But we don’t see the fundamental thing that happened. The fundamental thing that happened, and the greatest calamity, is not that there was no love or support. The greater calamity which was caused by the first calamity is that you lost the connection to your Essence. That is much more important than whether your mother or father loved you or not. You lost your own love because of that.
