Psychology and Spirituality
The human condition involves two equally important journeys.
- the psycho-therapeutic
- the spiritual
The psycho-therapeutic journey is about knowing your true self, strengthening your ego and gaining self-confidence & independence.
The spiritual journey is about knowing God, realizing that life is much bigger than “self” and choosing to humbly “serve others in love.”
It is interesting to see that both journeys are intertwined. We live in a fallen world. Life is tough and as a result our souls become wounded. Healing the wounded soul is central to the psycho-therapeutic journey. Thankfully, the spiritual journey can help in this transformation.
Knowing God’s truths can banish the lies and false images of self. Receiving God’s forgiveness frees the soul from guilt, blame and shame. Personally knowing God’s love solidifies one’s sense of significance and self-worth.
The transformation of the soul is important because “You cannot give away what you do not have.” If you don’t feel loved, it is difficult to love others. The psycho-therapeutic and spiritual journeys help you to not only love yourself, but help you to transcend your “self” and join God in unconditionally loving others.
