So if you are watching this class, chances are you have some sort of past that you aren’t proud of. Whether it’s half a lifetime in a false religion, or just a few days of sins we wish we could undo, we all have things in our past that haunt us and chase us. However, something that most of us don’t appreciate, is how pure our intentions were during those mistakes. Most of us were simply and innocently searching for God and truth, and we thought we found him in Christianity, in Islam, in Buddhism, in idols in the far east, in messianic judaism, in music, in festivals, in LSD, we truly thought we found something good, something Godly. We can’t blame ourselves for thinking that we had found the good thing that we were searching for. You weren’t worshipping Jesus because you had a deep desire to worship idols, you followed the church because you found kindness there, you saw charity there, you heard beautiful prayers there, and you found inspiration for your soul there. You thought you were truly finding God over there. That’s not a reason to hate yourself. You didn’t spend 10 years on a mountaintop in india because you wanted to rebel against God and study black magic, you stayed with those shaman’s and swami’s and Zen masters because they thought you patience, and showed you peace, and taught you how to be calm, and how to control your emotions and find yourself through meditation. You thought you found the highest form of spirituality over there. That’s not a reason to beat yourself up. You spent every weekend going to music festivals and rainbow gatherings, because you saw peace over there, you saw unity and friendship, you saw kindness and compassion and awareness and sensitivity, and those are not bad things that you need to regret on.
The secret is learning how to accept the truth, and move on when you find it. If you thought you found the truth, that you found God, and then someone comes and shows you that there is something a little wrong with what you are doing, and there is something that is even closer to the truth, it doesn’t mean that you need to beat yourself up and burn your whole past and hate yourself for all the “sins” you did in your innocent search for the truth, you just need to take the good from what you learned so far, and then be ready to move forward onto the next stage of life, say a pleasant goodbye to the people that helped you get this far, do a simple Teshuvah (repentance) on the mistakes that you made, and then calmly take the next step forward in your spiritual journey, wherever it may take you.
