Be – Do – Have

We are conditioned to Do in order to have the things we desire so that we can ultimately experience happiness. As a student at the University of Santa Monica, in the master’s program of Spiritual Psychology, I was introduced to the concept of Be – Do – Have. The more I practice residing in the heart of who I am as a spiritual being the more I am attuned to the power of BEING. As I center in my being ness and then take action from that place inside, I am aware of greater ease and grace, showing up in my daily life.

Most of my life, the focus has been on taking actions and doing. My personal experience is one of effort and struggle as I took actions in order to have what it was I thought I wanted so that I could experience peace and joy. I struggled to get what I wanted which was ultimately joy. I thought that if I completed my to – do list I would be at peace. But that rarely happened. I experienced moments of relief when I accomplished the items on my to-do list. Invariably the relief was short lived. There was always more to do. Such the nature of being human.

As I connect and reside in the infinite consciousness of my Self II am noticing actions coming from a place of inspiration. As I take actions from inspiration (In-Spirit) I am aware of greater ease and grace. It has taken many years to connect to the place inside that is eternal, peaceful and expansive. The number one method I have used to connect to my Presence is Spiritual Exercises. Through my doctorate program I learned that the only wrong way to do Spiritual Exercises was to not do them. I began with 2 minutes and over time built up to 2 hours a day. It was through commitment and accountability to my SELF that I maintained a practice of daily spiritual exercises.. The more I spent time in connection with my True Self through spiritual exercises the more I experienced changes in my life. Everything that no longer served my True Self had to go.

I was married at the time to an active alcoholic who acted as if he were sober. He was lying to everyone including himself, I suppose. The more I became connected to my divinity, the more I became self empowered to live according to my values and Soul’s calling. The more I connected to my SELF and lived my Soul’s calling the more the relationship crumpled. He succumbed to his addictions due to his unresolved shame. It wasn’t long before I left the marriage. There was no choice but to leave. When you claim your inner inheritance as an extension of Universal Creation there is no choice but to let go of negativity. Negativity can be your own addictions or someone else addictions. Negativity of any form resided in against-ness. As we connect to the eternal Source of our being-ness it is a given that against-ness no longer serves us or our lives.

When you begin or expand your spiritual life it is common for your life to shift in ways that bring you to your knees. The ego is devastated. The Essence of your Divine Self is elated. Pain is the touch stone of spiritual growth and expansion. In my doctorate program we are reminded to use everything for our learning, growth and upliftment. The greatest pain yields the greatest blessings. Today I am freer than I have ever been. I am residing more often in my Essence of the pure Self. I am braver, calmer, happier and more faithful. I am slowly but surely making spiritual progress. Oh by the way, as you connect more spiritually, there are those who will try to tear you down. There will be those in your past who will throw your human-ness and errors of your ego in your face. They will try to destroy you with your past human-ness. Stay strong in your inner knowing that ultimately “You do not exist.”

Compassionate Self Forgiveness

Forgiveness is a challenging yet profoundly important path to learn and maneuver. We are aware of how important it is to not only forgive others but to forgive ourselves. Anger, resentment, judgment, feelings of betrayal and bitterness affects our health in ways that we do not consciously comprehend. The delusion is that we can get away with these feelings of against-ness without consequences. The truth is every time we judge ourselves or others we are inflicting wounds on our psyche.

Our inherent nature is unconditional loving. That is who and what we are at the core of our True Self. When we condemn or hold a position of self righteousness, we are tearing flesh, so to speak. We are hurting ourselves. At the core of our being we are engaging in fragmentation and splitting off from our inherent Loving Presence by misinterpreting ourselves and others as other than who are, Spiritual beings using this human experience to learn greater SELF AWARENESS, transforming limiting beliefs and releasing anything unlike loving.

When we are feeling hurt by perceiving we are being judged by others we are also wounding ourselves. We are agreeing with the judgment on some level. We know this by our reaction of hurt or anger. As we grow more secure and confident inside of ourselves any judgment from others simply fall away. It is your barometer of progression. If you know the truth of who you are, as HU-man, reactions to others will be minimal. You will find yourself living in greater peace which manifests as greater health, physically, emotionally, mentally, financially and interpersonally.

After my divorce I was feeling so disillusioned, disappointed, betrayed, lied to and so very hurt that my mind and emotions were full of judgments. It took a great deal of effort, on a daily basis, to work with and release my sense of self righteousness and feeling like a victim. Even though I was victimized by his behaviors there came a time to move forward, to release the negativity, and to take back my power and my life. I am grateful to the various resources available to me in order to heal my mind, body, emotions, finances, and heart. Today I am stronger, wiser, more compassionate and healthier because I chose inner freedom through compassionate self forgiveness.

When we go through major trauma it is wise to give ourselves plenty of time and space to heal. There is so much turmoil and disorganization that happens as the result of major life changes. It is as if we need time in the recovery room after a major surgery. The healing process is unique and individualized. It is important to give space and time to feeling all of the emotions and processing all of the various events leading up to and after the life altering circumstance. We can seek out various resources such as grief support groups, counseling, coaching and spiritual communities that may be very supportive during these times of loss and trauma.

The more we can forgive ourselves and others the more inner freedom and joy we experience. Our health thrives. Our relationships flourish. Our finances blossom. Our joy returns with more potency and aliveness. Compassionate self forgiveness is a process of recovery and healing. Give yourself the gift of healing.
