Question: I grew up poor. I remember that I did not have any problem being with other children who were richer than me. However, as I grew up, I started noticing how adults would make me feel like I was less than the other children because I was poor. The more I grew up, the more I did feel like I was less than my peers. I unfortunately accepted that because I didn’t have some material possessions, I didn’t have any worth. I still suffer from that feeling of unworthiness up to now. I believe, although I study your teachings, that if I don’t have a lot of money and if I don’t own the most expensive possessions, I don’t have any worth. I would like to stop believing that poor people have no worth and rich people are superior to them, that it’s only by having all the money in the world that I will be happy, and I will feel like I am somebody.

Well, again, the answer — which is almost a standard answer — is that this kind of belief, of course, comes from a separate self. And you need to use our tools to uncover that separate self and let it go. You also need to make a decision to simply not accept this belief. But of course, on a planet like this, there is a very old tradition, where the fallen beings have wanted the majority of the population to feel that they are poor, that they can only be poor, and that as a result of that, they do not have the same worth as the elite, who are rich and have power and authority. The fallen beings have created this very, very elaborate collective beast, or entity, that projects at people that your worth is defined by your outer power, your outer possessions, the amount of money you have, the fancy houses, the smart sports cars, the jewels and so on.
Now, there are people who have grown up in relatively poor circumstances and not accepted this kind of belief. This messenger is one of them. His parents gave him the impression from early childhood that it is how you behave and how you are as a human being that defines your worth, not your outer possessions or your position in society. If you have grown up in an environment where you have come to accept this belief, it is because it is part of your divine plan that you demonstrate how to get over it. Therefore, you simply need to apply the tools that we have given so you can get over this, and then demonstrate to other people in the same situation that this is indeed possible, and here is how it can be done.
It is clear from what we have said that when you have Christ discernment, you realize that a person’s worth is not defined by the outer possessions, by the amount of money, or by anything else on earth. It is not your race, it is not your nationality, it is not where you are born that matters. All that matters is your inner sense of who you are. And all people have equal worth in the eyes of God, in the eyes of Christ. As part of Christ discernment, you naturally overcome this belief.
