We sometimes are too apologetic about who we are and why we are here. There's an East Indian story about a prince who is discovered living in a very humble village. As a small child he had wandered away from the court and had been found by villagers who raised him as one of their own. The point of the story is that even in humble circumstances, the prince was still a prince. Each of us, no matter what our circumstances in this life, is still an important and precious child of this universe. We belong here. We deserve and are entitled to the best this life has to offer. Let's not be too shy or timid in claiming our good— let's step in and claim it quickly, because we belong here.
