Spiritual Bypassing, White Privilege and BlackLivesMatter.

“I noticed a widespread tendency to use spiritual ideas and practices to sidestep or avoid facing unresolved emotional issues, psychological wounds, and unfinished developmental tasks.”

When we are faced with uncomfortable and distressing societal struggles and failings of justice, I’ve noticed a tendency for spiritual folk to come out with the same old tropes:

  • You create your own reality
  • Keep your thoughts positive — only focus on the good stuff
  • Trust the Divine timing of life
  • And a new one… all lives matter
