I MENTOR OTHERS BY SHARING SPIRITUAL LESSONS I HAVE LEARNED.
Twelve-step recovery programs have long recognized the healing power of sharing our stories. I have learned that my stories are not simply my own. They are meant to be unique contributions to the realization of the new state of consciousness that Jesus describes as the kingdom of heaven.
An adage from recovery programs shares, “We are only as sick as our secrets.” Whatever I am afraid to share becomes a dangerous darkness within me. I don’t need to share everything with everyone I meet, but I need to be willing to share freely as I am guided by Spirit. I see myself through divine perception as a spiritual victor and overcomer—not as a victim of life’s circumstances. Telling my story is a powerful way to share the spiritual lessons I have learned.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.—John 1:1
