Today we will speak of value. This is not a subject we have addressed here before, but we feel that at this time it may be well to do so.
What is value? How may it be best determined? Is it being determined in the best way today? Let us suggest today that perhaps the understanding of what value is may need to be modified somewhat.
The true measure of value is whether a thing, a thought, or an action is beneficial to life. The ultimate value to a being, to your being, is life itself. Does the thing being valued enhance life? Does it harm life? That is always at the heart of your own determinations, is it not? Perhaps you might be mistaken, but do you not always determine your valuation of something by what you perceive to be best for yourself?
