Some indulgences can be spiritual experiences, even cartoons with amazing storytelling.
One thing the Herd is oblivious to:
We judge ourselves on our intentions, others judge us on our actions.
We tell stories about what is important to ourselves, and believe others can see our good intentions.
Never gonna happen.
Everyday, preach the Gospel, and if necessary, use words. (Saint Francis)
Loving others unconditionally begins with loving ourself unconditionally.
We know this.
When we have trouble accepting others, could it be that we are still struggling with loving ourselves?
The devil is the second most powerful force in the world and if we let our guard down (even for a second) he can trick us and turn us on a path we have no idea we are on.
Stay humble. And thankful. For each day, for each gift. Including the countless victories we have over the devil.
Anybody out there struggle with addictions?
It would be better if we changed the subject right?
(I guess that would be denial)
Want to transform yourself?
Start by overcoming one of your addictions.
Do you ever wonder how you come across to others?
