“What people revere, they resemble, either for ruin or for restoration.” – Greg Beale
The word “worship” most often has a religious connotation. But we can revere, adore, exalt, venerate and glorify many things beyond whatever concept of a Higher Power we have–or don’t.
We can worship money.
We can worship being right.
We can worship a bigger house filled with more and sexier stuff.
We can worship the demonization of people different from us.
We can worship busyness.
We can worship expanding and protecting our ego.
And on and on.
Of course we can also worship compassion.
The thing to remember is that which we worship is a choice, each and every day, in the present moment.
The other thing to remember is that, ultimately, we become what we worship.
