WHERE SPIRITUALITY MEETS OUR VULNERABLE HUMANITY… 

Jeff Foster, with humour and compassion, speaks simply and directly about non-duality, emotional healing and awakening… and finding the sacred in the ordinary. 

“Thoughts and feelings are not mistakes, and they are not asking to be HEALED. They are asking to be HELD, here, now, lightly, in the loving arms of present awareness…”

AN INSURRECTION OF HUMAN-KINDNESS

Sadly, friends, it does not surprise me, all the stories coming out now about so-called “spiritual gurus” abusing and shaming and dehumanising their students. In the name of Truth. (What kind of ‘Truth’ could be so unkind?)

My heart goes out to their victims. I have been a victim of narcissistic abuse myself. I know how crazy-making and painful it can be.

I’ve been saying this for years: The more ‘perfect’ and ‘calm’ someone appears to be on the outside, the more internal chaos and mess they are inevitably repressing, hiding from view.

You see, all that is unhealed (unconscious and unseen and unloved and unmetabolised) within us, will inevitably end up pulling the strings in our lives and hurting our loved ones and those closest to us. All our repressed humanity, all the silenced voices of shame and fear within us, all the rage and grief we numb in order to maintain our image of “the nice one”, or, worse, “the enlightened one”... all of this material will end up making us cruel and unkind and passive-aggressive if it’s not acknowledged, if we don’t take full responsibility for it. All our unmet trauma, all our squished ‘darkness’ will lead us to manipulate and control others, shame them, call them names, blame them, and invalidate their pain, in OUR search for relief. We will simply stop listening.

No matter how “enlightened” we are.

In this way, we avoid being seen, and our vulnerable humanity remains hidden, and we get to play the superhuman “expert” or “guru” or “perfect being” and get the power over others we secretly crave. So we can run from our own loneliness and doubt.

Until we discover our true spiritual power:

The open, vulnerable, tender and honest,
messy and achy and mostly broken
brilliantly and completely whole
human heart.

- Jeff Foster
