What if our values are rooted to our original principles centre and that the universal principles are by definition timeless and unchangeable?
For instance, our need for not hanging out with toxic people is rooted to self-respect. Truth is most of us have been loved conditionally and/or inconsistently. Sometimes, we could even have been merely treated as belongings and extension to our narcissistic parent(s) who, generally, give birth to kids for two reasons: 1. Brighteneing their public image and nurturing the illusion of being “decent" people, 2. Getting huge amounts of narcissistic supply.
Result? We grew with an intrinsic worth discriminated against. We built so many limiting beliefs about ourselves. Our attachment style (the kind of bond we have with our caregivers) is insecure. Our self-respect has been compromised.
By-product? We repeat the patterns we’re familiar with, and engage in toxic relationships because our “values" are distorted and in phase-shift with our natural constitution: the principles center, the conscience, the compass we have to know what is right from wrong and which was only numbed under the life-time of conditioning. Respect is one of those major universal principles and it starts with self-respect.
More to the point, I believe that whenever our values are not rooted to our original center, it makes sense that they change and they have to. But, whenever we reconnect again with the source and the pure spirit through re-writing our invasive subconscious program, our needs and values become stable and crystal clear! 💙🧚♀️🌞
