Learning to Relate from Freedom rather than from Duty or Obligation
This Video Class is in English without additional translation.
The power of guilt is strong. Perhaps most of us can relate to times in our lives, even today, when we give up our truth because of guilt. Very likely, we have been conditioned to be ruled by guilt since early childhood. Today, we may find ourselves behaving out of a sense of obligation and duty at the expense of our life energy.
Particularly when we are intimately connected with another person, it brings up a lot of fear to possibly hurt or disappoint the other person when we follow our truth moment to moment.
Facing guilt is one of the rites of passage on the journey toward freedom.
When someone wants something from us and comes with an energy ranging from gentle requesting to outright demanding, we are faced with a challenge to either listen to our own needs and truth in that moment or react automatically and habitually out of a sense of duty.
If we choose to give from guilt or habit, the price we pay is a deep sense of inner disconnection and then eventually discontent and perhaps even anger towards the other person.
In this video class, we will look at the power of guilt and teach some concrete steps for learning to relate from freedom and truth.
The format is teaching, some questions and a guided meditation.
