How to Be Truly Spiritual

One cannot be truly spiritual if one has one grain of anger, fear, doubt, envy, or other negative emotions. Yes, one can say “I am spiritual” but, if you have any negative thinking toward another soul or a situation, then you cannot be spiritual in the truest sense of the word. How many of you react to situations that you know you should not react to? How can the world be healed if individual souls cannot heal themselves? It is within oneself that one needs to start changing. How many of you have problems with your brother, sister, mother, father, friend, work associate? Yes, I am speaking to you who answered that statement. How can the world be changed until peace is found within yourself? How often do you find yourself justifying yourself? How often do you find yourself becoming angry with someone? What a waste of energy! Just think what you could do with that wasted energy! You could manifest something you desire, educate yourself – there are so many ways to use the energy in a positive way. The more you do this, the more you will be able to create and manifest. It just takes you to stop the flow of negative energy.

I can hear you saying now, “But the person will not speak to me,” and I will reply “Do you need them in your life – truly need them in your life?” You are here for your own life, not for anyone else’s! If you can stand in front of God, as you know this energy, and know that you are without blemish, that is all that matters. Your justifying yourself to someone does not change things because there will always be two points of view. As I wrote in another message, “Each man has his own truth.” Why is it important that you are right? Do you think you will lose face by not justifying yourself? I will tell you that you will not. You will move forward in consciousness because you will no longer be trapped in the old energy of justification. You will no longer be living in a stagnant energy. As you let go, as you move forward, you will then begin to see a new side of life, one that you could not see before because you were caught in conflict.

Let go of the need to be right, to be the victor. Do not give anything any energy. What does it matter except to the Self who has to do this, because this is what it thinks it must do because of habit over years of life. Just walk away. Let it become the other person’s problem, not yours. Give it no energy at all. You will soon see a difference in your life. Yes, there will be the sadness of letting go. Perhaps the situation has been happening over many incarnations. However, one soon heals. Just remember that. The healing process starts immediately – as soon as you let go!
