Negativity and You

Negativity and You

     Negativity is not you. It’s just not you. Negativity is always transient; and as Spirit, you are Eternal. Spirit always was, always is and always will be. A moment of negativity, even if that moment lasts a lifetime, is going to pass. Negative crap uses its energy up, but Spirit is energy. Negativity has energy and power, as much as we decide to give it; but Spirit doesn’t just have energy, it is energy.

     You can spend all day, all week , all month on eradicating a negative from your life. It may seem overwhelming, it may be tough; but you will succeed if you are relentless.

     Forgiveness is so very important. We seem to be creatures with an incredible capacity for hanging onto stuff that serves no one. Things we don’t even consciously remember being hurt by or pissed off about or jealous of are stored in the cells of our bodies and in the depths of our subconscious minds. It’s all poison, and it must be flushed out.

     One thing I think I should mention at the outset here is that forgiveness, as far as the spiritual perspective is concerned, is a bunch of crap. There’s really no such thing. The idea of there being a “me” and a “you” that exist as two separate entities is a human-perspective-created fiction. Even if there was truly such a thing as a “me” that was somehow separate from “you”, “you” only do things to hurt “me” or piss “me” off because “I” asked “you” to backstage before the show. The fact that you take the time and effort to do them is something I should be thanking you for, not forgiving you. Alas, to gain that spiritual perspective we must transcend the human perspective. And forgiveness is a great tool for that.
