The Heart of Spirituality

Last night, I was teaching a teleclass on Healing Body Mind and Spirit. Talking about the energetics of karma and how our unresolved experiences are stored in the core of our auric body reminded me how important it is to infuse our spirituality awareness with compassion and heart.


Without compassion our spiritual truths become dry and brittle, rules and regulations, judgmental and hollow. The simplest truth can be a weapon of hurt when it is not softened by compassion.


A woman has recently written a book about the dangers and cruelty of positive thought. She is a cancer survivor who was hurt and angered by people telling her that positive thought and affirmations would help her heal.


This is a prime example of how truth without compassion can be a problem. She was clearly harmed emotionally enough to want to write a whole book about it. I imagine the people who tried to encourage her with positive ideas and thoughts felt they were helping her and that they believed positive thought had helped them through the physical and emotional trials of life.

When we infuse our spiritual truths and beliefs with compassion we are able to see where another person is coming from, honoring their feelings first before we rush in with our wisdom. We can be gentle, supportive, kind and compassionate. We may believe that positive thought cures everything from warts to cancer, and yet we learn to accept that another person's belief system may be very different and they have a right to their beliefs and their personal course of action. 
As we communicate from this vast open place of acceptance, we bring our own positive thought into the vibration rather than mindlessly repeating the things we've read in books or seen in movies about how this affirmation or that meditation will help. Sharing our wisdom when asked directly is often a good filter to use.


An attitude of loving support and acceptance is more truly the heart of spirituality. Within that heart lies true healing.

Yours in Spirit!
