"Getting Rid of Gunk - Reclaiming Sparkle"
How is it that the place where you go to get clean gets totally yukky!?!
The shower. I enjoy the shower. The feeling of the warm water spray and the smell of soap and shampoo – very cleansing to the body and the soul.
Until . . . all of a sudden . . . it wasn’t there yesterday . . . gunk!
Don’t feel so clean anymore. A good scrubbing and the shower is ready to provide more of what it does best.
So it is with our spiritual selves. We utilize our spiritual selves to keep us going – keep our thoughts positive and healthy. We continue to jump in to the spiritual realms to feel cleansed and relieved of the worldly stress and drama.
Yet, without keeping the spiritual self clean, we allow spiritual gunk to accumulate and grow. Black doubt creeps in and lodges itself in the corners of our mind. Moldy resentments and criticisms lurk in the drain.
So, how do we drain the gunk out of our spiritual self?
Scrub it out. Disinfect it. Rinse and repeat.
What scrubs the doubts, resentments and criticisms? TRUTH. Unfortunately, TRUTH about who we are, our value, our peace sits in the cabinet waiting for us to apply it. TRUTH is more than a sacred opinion. TRUTH is an immutable sacred fact. My beliefs about something give me my truth. Everyone has their own truth. THE TRUTH holds fast whatever the belief system.
TRUTH states . . . “I am a sacred being of Light.”
My belief might say . . . “I am sacred if I am good enough.”
