#SelfCondemnation } A dirty trick, but in #truth, self-condemnation is never appropriate. It is a dirty trick of the #ego, designed to bring one down. It is not God's will that we should so harshly #condemn ourselves. Only the ego would interpret our wrongdoing to mean that we are #bad, irredeemable, wretched creatures. Only #theego would respond to guilt by shutting down, and dropping out of life. #Thespirit knows better. The #spirit recognizes that no matter what we do, we are good, and we are capable of good. And when we see that we have done wrong, the spirit would jump to correct it, and to #heal it; rather than steep in #shame and #selfhatred. We don't need to condemn ourselves. But it is good and godly that we condemn our wrong actions, and that we reject #badness. That is our #Divine sensitivity at work. So, this is not a clarion call to throw away #thepower of discernment; only to realize that we are not what we do. Our actions do not change the person we essentially are. They do not rid us of the basic goodness and sensitivity that #God placed in our hearts. So, we can always renounce bad, and turn to the good that our hearts always call us to. #Discernment still stands. In this brave #newworld, many people understand the idea that they are good no matter what they have done. But few understand that that does not #eliminate the need for #morality. The #NewAgers boldly proclaim that we are #free of these ideas of right and wrong, good and #evil. We are #goodchildren of God, no matter what. It is true integrity to condemn the actions your heart hates; actions that violate the law of #love, which is your heart's law. Those actions should be #condemned, because they are #hurtful, and they are not true to who you really are. God gave you His #Heart. Your sensibilities and sensitivities are no different than God's. When you feel moved to help someone in need, when you feel guilty for doing wrong, when your heart responds #lovingly to another #humanbeing, that is God in you. Thus, there is no difference between #satisfyingGod, and satisfying your own heart.
