One of the things we were talking about in Masterful Living class yesterday is how so many spiritual students will approach their entire spiritual journey as though they are trying to become more holy. They’re trying to eliminate their sinfulness.
The only problem is that they’re not sinners. None of us are.
No matter what we’ve done, or not done that ego pretends is a sin, we’re still not sinners.
It’s hard to believe in our innocence when lifetime after lifetime we’ve been indoctrinated as sinners. A Course in Miracles tells us that one of the most chaos inducing beliefs we can have is the one that has us believe that we’re sinners, but we’re not.
When we can see with Divine Vision, we’ll see that there is no sin.
There is no stain on our permanent record.
And, there’s no stain on ANYONE’S permanent record.
There is no punishment, but what Love does is it calls correct.
Love offers correction.
Another way to say that is that we experience our karma – which isn’t a punishment, ever. God does not punish. Our karma is neither punishment nor reward. Karma is, in many respects, a teaching.
When we make loving choices we learn through loving results and experiences.
When we make unloving choices we learn through pain.
Let us change our mind about punishment. Let us release any idea that someone should be punished for any reason whatsoever. Instead, let us call for their mind to be corrected.
After all, Spirit doesn’t punish, only the ego thoughts are of punishment.
Let’s put punishment behind us and choose Divine Vision instead.
This is our choice on the path of growth to spiritual maturity.
Sometimes we stumble and fall, but if we’re knocked down, we get up again. And again. And again and again and we don’t ever stop getting up.
I’m writing this before bed, long before the election results are well in, so I’m not commenting on that. I only encourage you to remember that nothing real can be threatened.
May truth be revealed and Love prevail.
