Self-Forgiveness ~ Matt Kahn ~ 7 September 2020

Source: Matt Kahn

In every moment, you and everyone else is always doing the best they possibly can. If anyone could do better -- they would. When anyone can do better — they will.

While spiritual teachings can give greater focus and attention to heart-centered choices, they are not to be confused with rules used to punish yourself with. Instead of ridiculing yourself with unrealistic ideas of perfectionism, most moments of healing call for a deep level of self-forgiveness where you are able to truly forgive yourself for any misjudgments in perception and reaction by truly accepting yourself -- talents, flaws, and all.

No one is designed to do this perfectly and it's for such an important reason. It is to guarantee that in en route to realizing how conscious, liberated, and heart-centered you already are, life creates moments to intentionally burst any bubble of perfectionism the spiritual ego tends to hide in.

As the spiritual ego gets down on itself for not "nailing it", you are able to embrace such a part within you, allowing your love to further set free the aspect of self who only knows how to be rewarded with praise, honor, and accolade in exchange for doing something "right".

Let your journey be insightful, illuminating, clarifying, and sometimes, as messy as its meant to be. No matter the roads traveled and the choices made, everything is made right in the end.
