Stop "Borrowing" and Start Being Spiritually Debt Free
In this world, the way it always turns, there are times when it seems natural to borrow whatever may be required to meet a special, short-term need of some kind: maybe a little money, a tool from a neighbor, perhaps a favor. Then, it is true enough: we are in debt until we make good that loan.
But, spiritually speaking, any reaction we identify with--lean on, to "get us through the night" -- is the same as borrowing a temporary identity: a false sense of self inseparable from the reaction that gives rise to its troubled appearance.
Which brings us to the great law that underpins all such transactions of the unconscious kind:
Whatever is borrowed must not only be returned, but it is always called for in an untimely moment, one that invariably demands compounded interest due. And then, as so often happens, there seems little choice but to borrow again...ever-deepening the circle of spiritual debt.
William Shakespeare hints at the spiritual lesson hidden in this insight that, with a little liberty granted the author here, should be clear for all to see:
IF we want to be free... "Neither a borrower, nor a lender be."
