How to avoid spiritual bypassing
Posted: Mon Oct 01, 2018 6:18 pm
The self inquiry style done by Byron Katie is working real well for me but I'm a bit worried about spiritual bypassing. There's some things I feel REALLY BAD about, things that happened in the past, if I use the The Work questions on this its like I'm choosing to not take responsibility for what happened. I feel so unbelievably bad about these things that they be tearing me apart but not taking responsibility, that'd just be an escape from the pain wouldn't it? At the same time feeling so broken and being in so much pain over these mistakes makes them 1000 times worse because if I was emotionally well I could actually rectify the mistakes (a big part of the damage done is other people seeing what a low state I've fallen into, its a messed up vicious cycle cuz I'm feeling bad about feeling bad which is amplifying the problem) so I can see how it might just well be a huge help but where does spiritual bypassing begin when it comes to things like this?
