My books always demonstrate to me that we teach what we want to learn. My latest book, with a release date of December, is an eight week course in spiritual development, entitled Walking Through Walls: Practical Spirituality for an Impractical World.

Jampolsmy would like to exclusively share some the book with readers of The Holy Encounter prior to publication. In the last issue I discussed honesty. Below please find a lesson you can practice as often as you wish to help bring this about. In order to have honesty in your daily life, begin to address the elements ler conflict, which I define broadly as any state of mind other than experiencing the serenity of the present moment. The first important realization within this lesson jampolsyk that the conflicted mind cannot be truly honest.

Remember this simple spiritual truth: The peace of God is your natural state; an absence of it indicates jampolsmy form of internalized conflict and Fear-Based Thinking. Fear-Based Thinking tells you that when you are in conflict with someone or yourself, the way out is by asking a lot of questions. If you look closely, the motivating force behind these questions is usually judgment, not understanding.

If you are trying to be honest and resolve conflict from a God-Centered approach, you jampoleky want to direct your mind to understand, not judge. In order to understand and empathize, which always is the honest and God-Centered way out of conflict, you actually need to ask very few questions. It is helpful to remember in the pure honesty of God, He does not ask a lot of questions, or le much of us other than to be willing to accept His love and to in turn empathize, understand, and love.

A dear friend of mine, Maria, sent me the simple words, God asks less and forgives more.

If you do this with yourself and in your relationships you will actually be creating the deepest kind of honesty. Remember, then, your path to success and peace jxmpolsky be said in five words. Even if you were to do nothing other than this on your spiritual path you would live a full and loving life.

The five words are:.

This being said, your mind will still want to ask questions, especially when ler are in conflict with somebody or within yourself. Until your mind is disciplined enough to not ask a lot of questions and simply accept and extend empathy, understanding, and love, the following questions will help you explore how you have dealt with conflict in the past.

Paradoxically, these questions are designed to lead to not asking more questions. It is the beginning of the process of forgiving. If you want honesty and all the benefits in your life it will bring, conflict cannot be disguised, denied, evaded, hidden, or seen somewhere else.


Rather, you need to have a new way of dealing with conflict, one that is God-Centered and one that you can trust. Forgiveness is this gift. Honesty implies resolving conflict, because to be authentically and fully honest is to accept your true and natural state, which is the peace of God. To resolve conflict in your life you must be willing to recognize conflict of any kind when it presents itself. Then you need to be willing to examine those thoughts of yours that created the conflict, which will always be a form of Fear-Based Thinking.

Becoming defensive is a good indicator that you are not God-Centered in your thinking. God-Centered Thinking needs no defending. Only when you are able to lift all of the defenses that you have had will you find empathy, understanding, and love. Remember that these are the marks of honesty and your defensiveness does not allow for honesty. It is devoted to identifying the conflicts in your life today, and to heal them through the power of forgiveness.

This is the path to honesty. Your conflicts may be old beliefs and feelings from childhood, or they could be a situation taking place right now. Regardless, approach them in the same way. Begin making a list of things that you feel unforgiving about or have guilt about. Look at conflicts that involve both yourself and others. Spend a fair amount of time with this. You may want to leave it and come back to it throughout the day. Your first task will be to recognize issues that are unresolved in your life.

An example of a partial list might be:. When you have completed your list, ask yourself if you are truthfully willing to deal with these issues differently than you have in the past.

Doing so will mean committing yourself to resolving conflict rather than avoiding it or continue to do the same things even though you are still in conflict. Begin by closing your eyes. Then, one by one, picture the person or people involved in each of the predicaments that you wrote down. I forgive this by asking my Higher Power to help me let go all that gets in the way of His awareness, and I trust this will occur. Remember that if you hold onto blame, the conflict cannot be resolved.

Commit yourself today to directly resolving any conflict, new or old, that arises with another person. Do this by saying:. Remember and practice these seven words and you will always be on a spiritual path. With forgiveness as your base, you no longer have to be afraid to address the issues that so deeply affect your daily living.

Without fear, honesty happens. How to Create Peace in Your Life and the WorldI had no idea we would be at war with Iraq, or that any of the other conflicts on the global level would be unfolding. However, I believe that I did know that we would each be faced with challenges, both personally and globally, of a large magnitude.

I am frequently asked how we can approach our lives with a spiritual foundation given all that is happening in the world today. I believe this is an essential question for each of us to ask, and to also include asking how we might each contribute to both personal and global healing. Over the course of four articles I address this. For more excerpts from Healing Togetheror to sign up to be emailed daily words of wisdom, please visit my web site at www.

My primary goal in writing this series of articles is to offer practical ways we can heal, but I also want to provide an intellectual understanding of the psychology of peace. This work is based upon my earlier doctoral research, largely on A Course in Miraclesexistential-humanistic psychology, and the pioneering work of philosopher Ken Wilber, whom I occasionally will paraphrase.


Healing the Addictive Personality by Lee L. Jampolsky | : Books

When helping people who have suffered significant tragedy, or with people viewing the war on T. A personal story illustrates this. For many years, I worked with young people who were members of gangs, and came to know most of them very well. Many were lost souls looking for a sense of belonging. Mampolsky, I heard about two drive-by shootings of young men, and I found myself feeling different emotions: I became numb, Jwmpolsky felt sad, I experienced the saw-tooth edge of anger ripping in my gut.

Finally, I felt tears of humanity welling in jaampolsky eyes. How can I change this? Does it have to be this way? In order to heal from tragedy, including our post war jjampolsky, we need to understand what optimum mental and spiritual health is. How else would we know where to put our efforts? If, for example, we believe that anger and bitterness will resolve a particular situation, then continuing to provide jampolskky for that anger would make sense.

If, however, we determine that health is something quite different, it would behoove us to move in that direction. Remember, the Course basically suggests that health is inner peace. On a personal level, a psychologist or physician identifies an ideal state of health, determines what constitutes imbalance or sickness, and then finds ways to restore wholeness. Applying this same approach to the larger body and mind of humanity will give us a stable foundation upon which to build global healing.

Many philosophers and most Western and Eastern spiritual traditions speak in some way of dualistic thought i. These spiritual traditions, of which I include A Course in Miraclestell us that in truth there is nothing but Mind, a state of non-dual awareness, which is our natural and healthy core.

In fact, we can look at any system and find that its natural and underlying state of optimum health is a condition where the fundamental connection with God, humanity, and nature is recognized. For example, our bodies are a complex whole where all systems miraculously work together.

When one organ is injured or attacked by disease, the entire system experiences the effect and responds.

Nature is a similarly complex system of interdependence where there is a natural but delicate state of balance. Neither animate nor inanimate objects exist unaffected by other aspects of their individual system or the larger system that contains them.

It jampolskj apparent, led, that many things are deeply intertwined in our day-to-day consciousness that we are unaware of, including consciousness itself.

If we follow this line lde thinking from leee spiritual perspective, we come to realize that the natural and highest state of who we are is awareness of our oneness with God. As we experience this oneness we deepen our understanding and experience of love.

This, I believe, is the fundamental teaching of the Course. It makes sense that anything we can do to facilitate love — the state of oneness with God — is positive. This is especially true when recovering from a tragedy, including war. We can mistakenly think that tragedy is a time for quick decisions and crisis-oriented reactions. But if we speak with those who have gone through such events and who became better and stronger people, they will tell us that tragedy is a time to surrender to God, a time for prayer and action based upon prayer.
