What does this truly mean? Does it mean that others judge you by whom and what you ‘associate’ with or does it mean that you judge yourself by the things you express as a result of your erroneous beliefs? As with fear, there is false guilt and real guilt. If a child stepped out into the street and got hit by a car and you did nothing to stop it (assuming you were in a position to stop it) and you felt ‘guilty’ that you did nothing that would be genuine guilt.
Guilt is a feeling of responsibility or remorse for some offense, crime or wrong that you have committed; whether real or imagined [dictionary.com]. The above example is real guilt; however, there is an imagined or ‘false’ form of guilt that one accepts as ‘real’. The typical controlling, dominating or manipulating form of guilt is; “Go out and have a good time while I sit at home alone. Don’t worry about me; I’ll be OK all by myself.” A sensitive person will be imposed with guilt from another when they accept the manipulative words of another as true.
When it comes to fear you hear the acronym repeated ad infinitum by many New Thought people that fear is False Evidence Appearing Real. That is true for ‘false’ fear but NOT for ‘real’ fear. Real fear is Factual Evidence Actualizing Reality. For example, if you feel and believe that you make a step and you will receive dire circumstances as a result, then it is false fear. If you make a step of the edge of the precipice and fall to your death it is real fear.
It is true that there are many more false situations of guilt and fear then there are real ones; however, we must use our minds to discern the differences and not listen to teachers, gurus, spiritual leaders who downplay the effect of real guilt and real fear. These conditions exist for a purpose; to allow you to evaluate your beliefs and behaviors in order to survive, thrive and manifest your Divine purpose in Divine order.
When you discharge your erroneous beliefs as a result of your evaluations and awareness of those effects of your evaluations, then, and only then, will you be able to move forward toward the actualization and fulfillment of your Divine purpose. The greatest impediment to your individual progress is retaining the beliefs, choices and decisions that led to your current state of NOT being whom and what you were created to be. Let go of everything that separates you from listening to the guidance from the Divine. Get out of your own way and be the love that you are; no matter what ANYONE else says or does.
Jump off of the virtual cliff and not the literal cliff. You will embrace eternity when you leap off of the virtual cliff and you will experience physical death when you leap off of the literal cliff. Discern these facts and judge your self-survival always predicated on the mutual survival of all.
Move forward and thrive by judging which behaviors are detrimental to the mutual growth and expansion of all and which are not. Decide which things are real and which are not. Decision comes from the Latin word ‘decisio’ which means to ‘cut off’ any other possibility. Decide for life and NOT for death. It is up to you and no one else. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
