I spent many of my younger years feeling like I was bad and wrong. I clearly recall times when I felt in conflict with an authority figure or disagreed with something I was taught. I was told and assumed internally that I was the one with the problem. I remember thinking that I wasn't good enough for God yet, I wasn't mature enough yet, but one day I would be, if I kept trying hard enough. Looking back on my younger self, I feel sad because I had internal knowing and inherent goodness. I had gifts and possessed truth, yet I continued to chase an ideal. May this meditation help you to see the gifts that are already inside of you and the ways in which you have been shaped by your relationship with the Divine.
