Morning Meds; 4 30 19
My spiritual journey has put me in many different spiritual states.
I’ve gone from youthful innocents, to damned, to forgiven, to exonerated*, to a new something I lack words to describe.
Most importantly, I know I am unconditionally loved and the fear invoked by all the previous states is gone.
*I was taught that I was hell bound, not for my actions, but for my inherited state of being born a hopeless sinner.
Makes me think of Steve Martin in The Jerk where he said “I was born a poor black child.”
When I realized that the Whomever or Whatever in charge, most likely isn’t some type of racist, who would damn someone for something that is not a fault or for something they had no say over, I concluded I was exonerated.
Being born a human, at no fault of my own is not a crime demanding eternal damnation.
For me this realization opened the door to unconditional love.
It also closed the door to hopelessness.
This has been my experience, I’m not wanting to step on what someone else believes.
It is just what I needed it all to get me to realize how loved I eternally am.
