The spiritual journey is not the journey of a lifetime, it is the journey of eternity. By actively searching for the truth about yourself, who you are, why you’re here, what’s after this, you have chosen the spiritual journey. You already know deep down that what is here on Earth can be flashy and fun (or not so much) and that there is something more important, greater, that calls to us. One thing that impedes our progress on this journey is guilt. We like to think that other people make us feel guilty but the truth is they can’t do that. Only you can make yourself feel guilty. When you feel guilt then you have reason to attack yourself. Attacking yourself keeps you small and attached to this world at a very base level. I’m assuming you don’t want that. So how do we get out of guilt and on to that greater call?
We use guilt in a myriad of ways but here is a place to start. Banish the words “I hate” from your language. You might change to “Oh, that’s interesting”, or “Hmm, that’s not for me”, or “Yikes, why am I feeling so strongly about that”, or “Is that out of alignment with me and should I be doing something about that”. Whenever you catch yourself saying the H word, stop and change it. Do not say you will do better next time. Actually stop and change your wording right on the spot.
That one simple change is going to change your perspective of what is. It will show you so much that is in your mind that is keeping you back, stuck, guilty. And, of course, once you are fully aware of it you can change it. The more stuff that you bring to the light the further your spiritual journey goes.
Another aspect of guilt is that it is mired in the past. We just love to keep the past going on and on. The present and the future are wide open and instead of embracing that we bring the past in to fill it up. Guilt is what we use to ensure we bring the past forward. I have to clean the house (or I will feel guilty). I have to__________ or this or that will happen and I will feel guilty.
You are the only one who perceives your guilt. You cannot use it to punish anyone else. It is yours, only yours. “Your past was made of anger, and if you use it to attack the present, you will not see the freedom that the present holds.” A Course in Miracles The present is wide open for you to make new choices that will lead you ever higher on the journey of eternity!
