two spiritual communities - 12-Step Recovery and New Thought.
I don’t like the words “flaws” and “failure.” In New Thought there is the admonition about the “spiritual bypass;” about claiming “nothing wrong here; see only the good.” Both may be extremes. Somewhere in the middle is the truth – or at least my truth that I can take in for my personal spiritual growth. I understand this work has to be done. It’s important to recognize, identify, and admit the things in me which stand in my way. This is an ongoing process – new ones continue to be show up, old ones enter into my new awareness.
