Since it is true that God comes to me through people, I can
see that by keeping people at a distance I also keep God at
a distance. God is nearer to me than I think and I can
experience Him by loving people and allowing people to love
me. But I can neither love nor be loved if I allow my
secrets to get in the way.
It's the side of myself that I refuse
to look at that rules me. I must be willing to look
at the dark side in order to heal my mind and heart because
that is the road to freedom. I must walk into darkness
to find the light and walk into fear to find peace.
By revealing my secrets -- and there
by ridding myself of guilt -- I can actually change my thinking;
by altering my thinking, I can change myself. My thoughts
create my future. What I will be tomorrow is determined
by what I think today.
