No provision for spiritual self-examination?
I think it is not necessary, if this refers to ancient beliefs. It's best to live life as best you can, morals,
ethics derived from religious and spiritual experience, for me the best proof that consciousness can exist. If we pay attention, day by day, minute by minute ... What better examination of conscience, to live as well as possible and take advantage of our successes and our mistakes and act accordingly?
Of course, this is more difficult, requires effort as wrote Bonita Grandfanda topic.
I was thinking about the value of experience.
I can I watch?
-Yes, I can see my growth, my awareness of the progress or static, also from the error.
Then he asked me;
Should I remove all memory of my previous experiences to grow?
- No, no way, because all of them, good and evil, right andwrong, have formed the basis for what I am today.
This serves in my mental file for me to grow?
- Definitely, Yes!
All experience is valuable, because they are the steps by which we ascends, the important fact is to realize and acknowledge to separate the good from the bad, not as criticism, but to enhance future experiences. I think that only destroys the unwanted, ie what is useless, which lacks the value, which is too shallow.
How will I grow if I delete my experiences and I do not take it as part of learning in this planet decimal?
The answer is very simple:
-If it did, there is no growth, only a continued ... start again from 0.
The Supreme walking with us, together we can grow for growth of everything, but if we stop, or walk back, we lose everything.
When a new experience in life, should in my opinion, always have a connection, a door to the past, to be able to open it, from time to time to see if I'm really making progress.
Everyone is the architect of itself, each is a pioneer in life, because we are learning...
But of course, as Jesus said "...would not destroy the door but rather would seek for the key wherewith to unlock it.”
For me, this means that we try very gently and discretion when evaluating our past, present and future.For me, this is a good examination.
(1778.2) 160:3.4 My philosophy tells me that there are times when I must fight, if need be, for the defense of my concept of righteousness, but I doubt not that the Master, with a more mature type of personality, would easily and gracefully gain an equal victory by his superior and winsome technique of tact and tolerance. All too often, when we battle for the right, it turns out that both the victor and the vanquished have sustained defeat. I heard the Master say only yesterday that the “wise man, when seeking entrance through the locked door, would not destroy the door but rather would seek for the key where with to unlock it.” Too often we engage in a fight merely to convince ourselves that we are not afraid.
