The Path to Perfection
I believe a spiritual journey is the path to perfection. This is what we can do for Spirit. His/Her desire is that we remember our holiness, heal our wounds, and forgive ourselves and others who we feel have wronged us. It can be difficult for us to see our faults. That’s where our relationships come in. They’ll show us exactly what we need to work on. It’s often been said that the world is a reflection of what’s in our own minds and everything is a mirror being held up to you. When we see goodness out there, it’s a reflection. When we see anger or negativity in someone, it’s still a reflection. Basically, it’s all in us. It’s like looking in a mirror. Once we recognize that and accept it, it changes everything. It brings all the responsibility home to us personally. That’s why the spiritual path is a mature path. It’s not for sissy’s. It can be rather confrontational.
Through our relationships we are shown our shortcomings and what we need to work on to be a better person. If you think your mate is bossy and demanding, then you need to look at where you are bossy and demanding. Your mate is revealing that to you. If you think your relative is an unhappy complainer, she is showing you your unhappiness and your tendency to complain. If you think your employer is selfish and inept, it’s in you. Many of us don’t want to hear these words. Well, (as the cliché goes) denial isn’t just a river in Egypt. This is a real strong clue if your relationships are a mystery to you. I encourage you to be open to this mirroring concept.
We tend to be uncomfortable with people who have displeasing characteristics, but metaphysically speaking, they are not the enemy, they are our savior. We need each other to learn valuable life lessons, without which there would be no personal growth. Remember one thing: the spiritual journey is about you, it’s not about fixing anyone else. Other people are learning their life lessons too. This is the way we improve ourselves and become a clear channel for God’s light and glory. It’s easy to be all you can be when you know who you are, and you understand how to correct or heal any adversities in your personality or character. Thank you!
