We often feel like victims. We are angry and upset with this and with that, with this person and with that person, with this circumstance or the other. These perceptions and feelings are distressful and lead to ill health physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.
In the spiritual life, we strive to heal the negative mind which leads us to believe we are victims. This healing comes about by becoming aware of our gratitude and appreciation for what we have, who we are, and what we can do for ourselves and others. We practice forgiveness for we come to understand that most of what passes for serious activity and thought is baloney, nonsense, and is based on illusion and delusion manufactured by the ego and has nothing to do with the eternal presence of God, Tao, the transcendent.
In the spiritual life we focus on the love of God, what God, Tao would have us do, think, and feel. We surrender to the universe by saying "Thy will be done" and we say this not as victims but as co-creators with God bringing our wills into alignment with God's will for as St. Paul says, "If God is with you who can be against you?" We must remember that we are not victims because God loves us. As Telly Savalas, the actor who played the TV detective, Kojack, used to say, "Who loves ya baby?"
