Quotes from this Download: To forgive ourselves is to let ourselves enter into the human family, where we're just like everybody else. • Look for any subtle way that your mind or your body may be attaching to the negative energy. Even pushing away from energy on a subtle level causes a type of attachment. It can become solidified in your system. • The depth of your being is always OK, but that doesn't mean that the other parts of your being are equally undisturbed. • One of the most devious forms of self is the spiritual self. The spiritual identity can be very refined and elegant, and then one day you realize, “I’ve been subtly creating a spiritual version of myself.”
