I sometimes get criticized for expressing what some people consider as negative feelings and imply that such feelings are not consistent with Radical Forgiveness. In the video that follows, I address this issue head on. But first, let me say this to put it in context.
I believe that life on the planet is meant to be an emotional experience. That’s why we chose to take on a body. To deny one’s feelings is to deny the reason for being here. There is no such thing as a negative feeling. Feelings only become toxic if they are suppressed and denied and that stunts our spiritual growth.
We purposefully set ourselves up to have experiences that make us feel separate so we can feel what that is like. That’s what our soul wants. Once we have experimented enough with separation and have realized that it is just an illusion, we wake up to the reality that we are in fact all one. But that shift doesn’t happen in the head. It occurs in the heart and is felt as Love. Without we feel compassion for each other in our everyday interactions with each other along the way, we’ll never get there. We need to open our hearts and let ourselves be vulnerable.
There’s nothing to lose but our pain.
