THOUGHTS 3601 TO 3604

MY THOUGHTS 3601
QUESTION 366: DO YOU UNDERSTAND YOUR UNIQUENESS WITHIN YOUR FAMILY, WITHIN YOUR CULTURE, WITHIN YOUR ETHNICITY, AND WITHIN YOUR FAITH? HAVE YOU LEARNED HOW TO MAINTAIN THE UNIQUENESS OF ‘YOU’ AND YET BE PART OF THE WHOLE? EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 3602
YOU VERSUS THE GROUP: ONE KEY TO YOUR SPIRITUALITY IS TO FIND A BALANCE BETWEEN THE UNIQUENESS OF ‘YOU’ AND YOUR OBLIGATIONS TO YOUR GROUP. AS YOU REACH HIGHER LEVELS OF SPIRITUALITY YOU MAY FIND YOURSELF SEPARATING MORE FROM YOUR GROUP. THAT EVENTUAL SEPARATION SHOULD BE DONE BY SHARING YOUR WISDOM AND BY RESPECTFULLY SHOWING COMPASSION FOR THE GROUP THAT YOU BELONG TO. ONE SHOULD NEVER LEAVE ONE’S GROUP WITH ANY FEELING OF CONTEMPT. IF ONE DOES SHOW CONTEMPT; IT IS NOT SPIRITUALITY THAT IS DRIVING YOU, BUT IT IS SELFISHNESS. WHEN ONE EVENTUALLY SEPARATES FROM ONE’S GROUP, ONE MUST ALWAYS REMEMBER YOUR FORMER POSITION WITHIN ONE’S GROUP AND HOW IT HAD HELPED YOU TO LEARN AND GROW. ANY SEPARATION FROM ANY GROUP SHOULD BE DONE WITH LOVE, COMPASSION, AND UNDERSTANDING. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 3603
YOU VERSUS THE GROUP: ONE PROBLEM TODAY IS THAT WHEN SOMEONE OUTGROWS ONE’S GROUP, THAT PERSON MAY EMPHASIZE THE SEPARATION BY SHOWING CONTEMPT OR DISDAIN FOR ONE’S FORMER GROUP. THAT ATTITUDE IS NOT A SPIRITUAL ATTITUDE. THIS IS THE GREATEST MISTAKE OF ANY CONVERSION. IF ONE CONVERTS TO A DIFFERENT FAITH, ADOPTS A DIFFERENT CULTURE, OR CHANGES POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY, ONE SHOULD NEVER SHOW CONTEMPT FOR WHERE ONE CAME FROM. YOUR PAST IS AN INTEGRAL PART OF YOU. HOW CAN ONE HATE WHAT IS AN INTEGRAL PART OF ONE’S ESSENCE! EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 3604
YOU: EVERY EVENT IN YOUR LIFE, WHETHER NEGATIVE OR POSITIVE, BECOMES PART OF THE TOTAL PICTURE OF YOU. YOUR LIFE’S PAINTING ISN’T FINISHED UNTIL YOUR SPIRIT LEAVES YOUR BODY. WHEN YOU TURN THOSE NEGATIVE DARK SPOTS IN YOUR PICTURE OF LIFE INTO POSITIVES YOU CAN PUT A BRIGHT COLOR WITHIN THAT DARKNESS TO SHOW THAT YOU HAVE LEARNED A POSITIVE LESSON FROM THAT NEGATIVE EVENT. MEANWHILE, COMPLETE YOUR PICTURE OF YOUR LIFE WITH BRIGHTER COLORS BY MAKING LOVING, COMPASSIONATE, RESPECTFULLY CHOICES WITHOUT INTENTIONAL HARMING ANYONE. EmilKoval©2012
