Everyone can be your teacher, and everything can be an object of worship.
When you can free yourself from the scales of judgement in your lower mind—where one thing is held in higher virtue than another—in your higher mind, everything has the same value.
In this space, you see the teacher learns from their student, as the student learns from their teacher. In every exchange and in every relationship, there is value to realize.
When you can accept yourself and your true nature, you see this shared value. In acceptance of yourself, you lose the need to rank and weigh, and to judge any thing and any one as better or worse.
In this space of equanimity, you understand you create the value you give, and the value you receive.
What’s curious is that in this effort to understand our world and improve our self, we allow ourselves to realize the infinite value we possess.
