I feel like the biggest gap between Christianity and spiritual ascension is the idea of sin . When I look back on my past and the mistakes I’ve made, especially as a child, I’ve learned that if you view any part of who you are as wicked or wrong you are teaching yourself judgment and shame. I have foregone healing my past self for pride in who I have become.
But the past and the present are not mutually exclusive, so...if I was never this lost and lonely child, expressing his hurt upon others, I would never have become this found and loving storyteller, seeking to heal the wounds inside all who seek it. I just wish that, in my darkest times and deepest confusion, there was somebody there to tell me that they’ve been there too, and everything’s going to be okay. When the people around me said I shouldn’t ask these questions or discuss such personal things, my reaction was “well somebody has to!” The term “short shrift” comes to mind. Its defined as “rapid and unsympathetic dismissal; curt treatment.” Didn’t know I knew that one.... It means to me that when I barb at observing how other people mistreat other people and themselves, I’m actually observing the shadow of myself. Their pain is mine, quite literally.
So I say to myself try and show a little more compassion for how others are behaving instead of reaching for the dismissal button. I think that unconditional love is a gift one receives only through giving. But don’t take my word as truth. Find our for yourself. Listen for the voice of God and grant yourself the courage to follow a higher path of Oneness. #love #heart #god #faith #easter #blessings #wholeness #oneness #healing #help #guidance #dance #light #flow #true #change #psychology #within #past #present #gift
