Moving From Unworthiness to Worthiness

“We are all avoiding the relationship with ourselves which is sacred because we have to go there and love ourselves. You have to go and love the part that feels unworthy. How do you move from unworthiness to worthiness? You bring your love, heart, and compassion.” – Agapi Stassinopoulos


Your Soul's Calling

“The reason why I have so much compassion now for anybody who says, ‘I don't feel like I know my place in the world. I don't feel like I belong. I feel like a stranger in a strange land.' So, I tell them, ‘My darling, let me tell you how that is the case for most of us. If you really think that people get up in the morning and feel like they belong in this world, there are very rare cases of that and God bless them if they feel that way. 99% of people walk around feeling amiss, feeling like they're not enough, and feeling the human condition. For me, my awareness was basically my soul had a calling to be here and to find itself without the man, the children, or a successful career. My soul had a calling to find it in the universality of its immense love and then my heart opened up.”  – Agapi Stassinopoulos


Exploring Our Divine Intelligence

“We have 37.2 trillion cells give or take that are giving us life in this moment. So, the fact that we all have Divine Intelligence and that we are more than our personalities, egos, or unique selves. When we go deep inside of ourselves in a meditative state, we can see that we are the ocean of love and mercy. We are the divine, the spirit, and the soul. And you do have a personality, a history, and your inner child but that all becomes part of your human experience. So, how you get to own that is to know that you are worthy of the love of the Divine that is your cells and the worthiness of that takes courage.” – Agapi Stassinopoulos
