I am a spiritually (and physically LOL) clumsy person who experiences the love of the divine on a daily basis. I am a great person, with many wonderful and useful talents given to me by my creator. I try love myself even when I am being "bad." I notice that it is a struggle to love others as myself but I am wholly devoting my life to that very thing. It seems that the struggle to love others is harder the closer that person is to me. In considering that, I realize that it is my ego trying to protect itself from rejection that causes it to be harder to forgive and love unconditionally.

I find that the more I use my spirit rather than my mind in dealing with others, the better the outcome and the more love I find for myself and others.

Do you think of yourself as a good person or are you still punishing yourself for those mistakes you have made in your life?

Do you believe that at the core of your self/ego you are evil and cannot change that?

When you let all these self-judgments go, you will be free.

The truth is that we are ALL clumsy spiritually. We all want love but struggle in giving it freely to others. However, we are not inherently evil but inherently good.

How do you view yourself spiritually?
