Separation is the opposite of wholeness
I found the following article illuminating. I hope you do as well.
Integrity means wholeness, completeness. A person with wholeness can focus their energies in one direction. A whole person achieves their life’s purpose without the dissipation of energies caused by internal conflicts. They gets things done with ease, and then move on to the next activity which further pursues their sense of inner joy.
Guilt and fear are, of course, part of the tradition that we have inherited from our forebears. That tradition is one of separateness. Separation of people into sexes, races, colors, religions. Then there’s the separation of cities via competing sports teams, the separation of nations through battles and war. Even consciousness has been separated into subconscious, superconscious and regular waking states.
Separation is the opposite of wholeness. Separation divides, while integrity unifies.
Integrity is the ability to say “and” instead of “or.”
Integrity is wholeness, or completeness. Wholeness allows your energies to be directed towards any activity without them being dissipated by inner conflicts. Integrity, therefore, empowers effectiveness.
Integrity of mind, body and spirit begins with spiritual integrity.
When your spirit feels crushed by a heavy feeling of guilt or fear, you can:
a) Go into meditation to trace the feeling back to its source and find out who originally put that feeling fear or guilt in you. Then, when you understand the original purpose of that programming and its inappropriateness today, you can let it go.
b) When the time feels right for your own personal Declaration of Independence, enter a quiet state, and then declare;
“I now release this old reality and replace it with the unconditional love which flows through all of Creation. I now cancel all of those unconscious vows and obligations which no longer serve me. I release these now, and I replace them with the unconditional love which flows through all of Creation.”
