Take the Weight of What You Don't Want Off Your Shoulders!

Key Lesson: What you're really weary of struggling with is the weight of unseen resistance, and not the unwanted condition you imagine needs to be resisted.

Avoid This Trap of Torment

Authentic self-healing must begin with truthful self-seeing. Just as the rising sun dismisses our fears of imagined dangers hidden in the darkness of night, higher consciousness of any unwanted condition must precede its correction. For those who would be free, the choice must be to see. Now, here is an important insight. It will help keep you safe and strong throughout your entire journey as you uncover the undiscovered parts of yourself.

Whenever we see something in us that is cruel, selfish, or otherwise self-destructive, our first temptation is to hand ourselves over to another dark state called self-condemnation. Most people will tell you it feels natural to first judge and then loathe ourselves when we stumble over some secret ugliness in our heart.

In these times of trial, we need only remember that the Living Light never shows us anything in ourselves that it hasn't already started to change for us -- if we will only let It! This is the hidden meaning behind that timeless spiritual instruction "Let go and let God."
