Cultivating Inner Wisdom & Finding Truth #truth #wisdom

The following is a copyrighted excerpt from my upcoming book:

Truth and Illusion:

The Politics of Spirituality

and How One Person’s Lie Is Another One’s Truth

In our quest for truth, we need to cultivate inner wisdom, for how can we find truth without inner wisdom?  And when we find truth, won’t it be wise?  All human beings contribute a perspective on truth, and each of our lives embodies and conveys truths.  In order to hear the truths that all of humanity can contribute to the greater truths of life, we need to cultivate inner wisdom.  In order to develop our inner wisdom, we need to:

  • Become self-aware
  • Accept ourselves
  • Heal our own inner emotional wounds
  • Stop the guilt syndrome by no longer shaming and blaming ourselves and others
  • Listen to our own deep thoughts, values, fears, and feelings with empathy and compassion
  • Listen to the thoughts, values, fears, and feelings of others with empathy and compassion
  • Create a safe space for ourselves emotionally
  • Create a safe space for others emotionally by making no assumptions, no judgments, and no projections
  • Overcome the split between “self” and “other” by understanding that we are all part of the universe, therefore we all contribute to a universal truth which encompasses all of us
  • Develop non-attachment and practice acceptance
  • Honor ourselves and every human being as an equally valuable person on this earth, simply because we breathe, think, feel, and exist. In honoring ourselves and others just for existing, we honor Life, of which we are all part.

If we can do all these things, we will be on our way to cultivating inner wisdom.  One sign that we have found inner wisdom is that we will tend to feel a greater sense of peace and contentment in life.  Feeling peaceful and contented conveys an inner wisdom that is open to discovering greater and greater truths, and indeed, has already found them!

About selfrealizationtherapy

I am a healer, life coach, author, and spiritual teacher. While I am ordained in the Christian tradition, I have also studied Eastern spiritual disciplines and practices, including Raja Yoga Meditation; Intuitive Coaching; Reiki; Falun Gong; and other forms of energy healing for both people and animals. I am available for distance healing and spiritual coaching via phone, Skype, WhatsApp, or Facetime; please email me at: to schedule a session. My goal is to assist you in connecting with your Higher Self to find fulfillment, peace, health, and happiness in life. I typically work with people for about six weeks, and then they either take classes with me and advance more, or simply go their happy way. While I cannot guarantee results, many clients find that in a few short weeks, more is accomplished than could be with years of traditional talk therapy. Born on the equator in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, I grew up moving back-and-forth between Africa and the United States my whole childhood and youth. We lived in three different countries in Africa, and three different states in the USA. I now live in Maryland, close to Washington, DC. I was widowed at the age of 28 when my 34-year-old husband died suddenly of a cerebral aneurysm that hemorrhaged, leaving me with an infant and a toddler. This crisis led me to believe that God loves us even when "bad" things happen, and also led me to pursue spirituality and become a minister. In 1996, thanks to "Autobiography of a Yogi" by Paramhansa Yogananda, and a meditation class called Raja Yoga, I started on an Eastern spiritual path, a journey which included becoming a healer and a mystic. On Thursday, May 27, 2010, I experienced what I call an Enlightenment Vision, in which I ascended and was blessed by Ascended Masters of many faiths: Master Lao Tzu, Mother Mary, Mary Magdalene, Jesus Christ, Lord Buddha, Paramahansa Yogananda, High Priest Melchizedek, Lady Kwan Yin, Master Usui, and then by the Seven Archangels of the Seven Rays. After this vision, the teachings in Higher Consciousness began. Apparently, my crown chakra was opened, and direct contact with the Ascended Masters has been possible ever since. My message to everyone is: this is possible for you to achieve as well, although getting there is not necessarily quick or easy. With a Master of Divinity degree from Vanderbilt University Divinity School, a Master of Public Health degree from the University of Texas Health Center at Houston, and a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology from Texas Christian University, I perceive a unity in my readings in Eastern religions and in Biblical studies. As a result, I believe the original message of Jesus Christ was and is a call to Self-Realization, which may also be called following The Way (a term used in the book of Acts by very early "Christians," although they did not call themselves "Christians;" they called themselves Followers of the Way. The Way, or the Tao consists of the practice of peace and love in every moment, honoring the Divine Presence within ourselves as well as within others. The Way of early Christianity was a spiritual practice which similarly focused not on the material world, but on the practice of Divine Presence within the earthly realm. When we practice The Way, or The Tao, we become one with Divine Peace, Love, and even bliss. When we attain this, we experience the "Kingdom of God" or Reign of God, within ourselves, Nirvana or possibly Samadhi. Achieving this Way within each of ourselves is the only way we will be able to usher in the Reign of Divine presence among us all here on earth. The ultimate goal of The Way, and of Self-Realization, is the attainment of unity with the Divine Consciousness, or Buddha-Consciousness or Christ-Consciousness, within, and beyond our normal mortal mind. This Unity-Consciousness is eternal, but begins in the here and now. May it be so.
