1. See others as you would like to be seen, as you are right now.

Let them throw off the cloak of guilt, shame, and embarrassment along with you.

The true and complete forgiveness of the Atonement does not allow any of that guilt, shame, or even embarrassment because you are a beloved child of God. So is everyone else, yup, even that one, and even them!

At the same time, you want to have healthy boundaries because if they are in ego mind they are out to attack, and while you may not need to point that out to them. You can be aware of it yourself and still engage in a loving manner.

2. As you engage with others, do so as if you were feeling God’s Love through them and bringing God’s Love to them because you are.

This is a relatively new understanding for me.

3. You can use the things you are learning to give different perspectives to old issues.

Just like you clean out your closets your beliefs need to have regular review and adjustments. This is how we grow and understand ourselves better.

4. Depression

Disclaimer: I am not a therapist of any sort. Just a resident of planet earth.

I mean, how can it be life when we think we are separated from God and one another in purpose and that lack is possible in any form? Seriously, this needs to be let go of through the Atonement!

The Atonement is the only place that truly relieves depression because it is the only thing that allows one to connect with God and all that is and know that we have not arrived but we will.
