Thoughtful Thursdays – #174 – Sins and Secrets

Standard

Sin = wrongdoing, transgression, crime, offense.

Secret = not meant to be known or seen by others

To my understanding a sin is an action done out of ignorance.

To my understanding secrets can be surrounded by shame.

Ignorance does not protect us from consequences.

Shame keeps secrets in place.

If we have a secret that causes shame it may cause ignorant actions with many consequences.

We all have “sins and secrets” we want to go the grave with. But the burden of carrying “sins and secrets” is so very painful. Here are some safe ways of releasing the pain.

  1. Write your heart out without censure.
  2. Find a therapist or someone you can really trust to talk it out.
  3. Don’t beat yourself up, have compassion for yourself.
  4. Research the issues you are dealing with.
  5. Change what you can, leave the rest alone.

We are all human and we make mistakes, this is part of life. And every day is a new chance to change.

 

Love – Emmitt Fox

Standard

There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer.

There is no disease that enough love will not heal.

No door that enough love will not open.

No gulf that enough love will not bridge.

No wall that enough love will not throw down.

And no sin that enough love will not redeem.

It makes no difference how deeply seated may be the trouble.

How hopeless the outlook.

How muddled the tangle.

How great the mistake.

A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all.

And if you could love enough, you would be the happiest and most powerful person in the world.
